The definition for this device in the literature I have is Limited Slip
(LSC), which pretty much describes its function.

"The 'Application' program is specific to each vehicle application, and
the external communication and LSC control as necessary to affect vehicle 
performance. In typical production car applications, this ECU would be 
16-bit Siemens 80167, 12MHz CPU clock, 4kb RAM, 128kb flash ROM."

The ECU is located on the Haldex LSC unit and communicates with the
car via the CAN bus.
