MEVD17.2 Control Unit The N55 engine is equipped with the Bosch engine management MEVD17.2 : The MEVD17.2 is integrated in the intake system and is cooled by the intake air. The MEVD17.2 is FlexRay-compatible and directly supplies voltage to the sensors and actuators. The top side of the DME housing also serves as the bottom section of the intake manifold. The housing is contoured in the area of the intake manifold to ensure optimum air flow. An O ring type seal is installed between the DME housing and the intake. The plug connections between the wiring harness and DME are water-tight.

For the first time, an engine-mounted Digital Motor Electronics (DME) module is used. The DME is bolted to the intake manifold and is cooled by the intake air. The engine mounted DME has the following advantages: Engine wiring harness is divided into six individual modules All electrical components on the engine are supplied directly via the DME The E-box is no longer need 211 pins are available The plug-in connectors are water-tight

MSD85 Control Unit Due to the changes brought about with the new N63 engine, the engine management system has been adapted accordingly. The new system, designated MSD85, works in conjunction with the High Precision Injection (HPI) system which is familiar from the N54 engine. The high level of technology on the N63 engine place high demands on the DME system. The ECM used features a very powerful 150 MHz processor and features a new connector concept. The connector concept consists of five chambers and functional configuration. This means each chamber is assigned to a specific function group.

The following list outlines the configuration of the chambers in corresponding order: Chamber 1 (8 pins): Ignition Chamber 2 (59 pins): Engine plug, cylinder bank 1 and several central engine functions Chamber 3 (40 pins): Vehicle plug Chamber 4 (54 pins): Engine plug, cylinder bank 2 and several central engine functions Chamber 5 (16 pins): Fuel injection An engine plug relates to sensor/actuator connections on the engine while the vehicle plug represents the interface to the vehicle specific components. The functions of the engine management system are described in the respective systems. 40

The N63 engine is controlled by the MSD85. This control unit has been modified to make it compatible with the FlexRay bus. The control unit is located to the front of the rightside spring strut dome. This control unit is liquidcooled rather than aircooled. For this purpose, the housing of the control unit features two windings in the one coolant line, which is connected to the low temperature cooling circuit for charge air cooling. The lower section of the electronics box is open to the outside. The upper section, which contains the connections, has a watertight seal.

MSD87-12: Control Unit Two water-cooled MSD87-12 control units are used. The same water tight components as those on the MSD85 (N63 engine in the F01) have been used. As on the predecessor engine N73, a primary (master) and secondary concept strategy has been implemented with the two control units. They have the same hardware, software and data records. The connected sensor system runs an automatic primary (master) and secondary identification. In this arrangement, the master is responsible for communication with the complete vehicle and the specified nominal values for the engine functions. The control unit is designed with the current software for the vehicle network with FlexRay.
