..::Engine Control Unit (ECU)::..

it controls various aspects of an internal combustion engine's operation, as well as the transmission. The most simple ECUs simply control the quantity of fuel injected into each cylinder on each engine cycle. More advanced ECUs found on most modern cars also control the ignition timing, Variable Valve Timing (VVT), the level of boost maintained by the turbocharger (in turbocharged cars), and control other peripherals.
