This paper presents embedded system design of the In-Vehicle System (IVS) for the European Union (EU) emergency call (eCall) system. The IVS transmitter modules are designed, developed and implemented on a field programmable gate array (FPGA) device. The modules are simulated, synthesized, and optimized to be loaded on a reconfigurable device as a system-on-chip (SoC) for the IVS electronic device. All the modules of the transmitter are designed as a single embedded module. The bench-top test is completed for testing and verification of the developed modules. The hardware architecture and interfaces are discussed. The IVS signal processing time is analyzed for multiple frequencies. A range of appropriate frequency and two hardware interfaces are proposed. A state-of-the-art FPGA design is employed as a first implementation approach for the IVS prototyping platform. This work is used as an initial step to implement all the modules of the IVS on a single SoC chip.
