What is Callback function and Callout Notification?

Author: Dr Kaarthick Balakrishnan

Callback Functions Functionality that is defined by an AUTOSAR module so that lower-level modules (i.e. lower in the Layered Software Architecture) can provide notification as required (e.g. when certain events occur or asynchronous processing completes).

A module provides callbacks so that other modules can initiate its processing. Callback from the COM Module triggers the runnables in ASWC.

Ex: When we receive an event (set temperature) through a CAN BUS then the communication module will provide a notification to the ASWC about the reception of the event through a CALL BACK notification.

Callout Function:

Function stubs that the system designer can replace with code to add functionality to a module which could not be specified by AUTOSAR.A module calls callouts to execute functionality that could not be specified by AUTOSAR.

AUTOSAR BSW shall provide callout functions in order to implement certain functionality in integrator code. When a module has to be customized for a particular behavior developer uses callout function callout functions to integrator code.

Ex: The module being specified should be informed about an event in another module. In this example, the IPDUs are all created in the buffer of the communication module. However, the IPDUs can be transmitted to the lower layer (CANIF or CAN TP) when a IPDU callout is received. The developer can decide when the IPDUs can be triggered. This will be implemented with the help of a Callout Function.

Ex: ECUM will provide Callout functions to initialize the modules.
