I/O Extensions for the Simulink-Programmable FPGA 1), 2), 3)

Flexible Extension

The FPGA technology integrated in MicroAutoBox II addresses new use scenarios with varying I/O requirements. For greater flexibility, the I/O converters are outsourced to separate add-on modules, which can easily be integrated into the MicroAutoBox II variants 1401/1511/1512 and 1401/1512/1513 (only one module at a time). It is easy to change the modules later on.

Two I/O Modules Available

  • The DS1552 Multi-I/O Module is a universal I/O module that offers many powerful I/O converters and several interfaces. It can be used for tasks such as FPGA-based cylinder pressure indication.
  • The DS1553 ACMC Module is an I/O module with I/O optimized for the control of various electric drives.

Programming Options

  DS1552 Multi-I/O Module DS1553 ACMC Module Customer-Specific Solution via dSPACE Engineering Services
Dedicated RTI blockset optional
Xilinx® tools plus RTI FPGA Programming Blockset1)2)3) ✓ 4) optional
VHDL optional


1) Programming via Simulink requires the RTI FPGA Programming Blockset.
2) Using the RTI FPGA Programming Blockset requires additional software, i.e. Xilinx® products, see the relevant product information.
3) Due to the introduction of the Vivado® software, Xilinx® will no longer support the Xilinx System Generator for DSP in combination with the ISE Design Suite after MathWorks® MATLAB® and Simulink® Release R2013b.
4) XSG AC Motor Control Library is required for the I/O framework.
