DS2211 HIL I/O Board

The basis for almost any hardware-in-the-loop simulation system
  • Base I/O hardware for dSPACE Simulator
  • Ideally suited to all kinds of hardware-in-the-loop simulation
  • Ideally suited for engine, powertrain and vehicle dynamics applications
  • Simulates and measures all engine signals (for up to 8 cylinders, cascadable for higher cylinder counts)
  • Signal conditioning for signal levels of 12 V, 24 V and 48 V automotive systems
  • Supports 2-voltage systems


Key Benefits
The DS2211 HIL I/O Board is the central I/O board for hardware-in-the-loop simulation, especially in the field of automotive electronics. The DS2211 HIL I/O Board is tailored to the simulation and measurement of automotive signals, particularly for engine and vehicle dynamics applications, and combines a variety of typical HIL I/O signals on one board. The board contains signal conditioning for typical signal levels of 12 V, 24 V and 48 V automotive systems and supports 2-voltage systems.

Building an HIL Simulator

Together with a processor board (DS1005, DS1006 or DS1007), the DS2211 HIL I/O Board constitutes the hardware core of dSPACE Simulator. The processor board performs the calculation of the real-time model, for example, of an engine, while the DS2211 measures and stimulates all the required I/O signals. The simulator can be expanded from 8 cylinders up to 96 cylinders by using two or more DS2211 HIL I/O Boards.

Angular Processing Unit

The DS2211 HIL I/O Board features a unique angular processing unit which supports high-speed generation and measurement of crank angle-related signals to simulate engines up to 29,000 rpm

Angle-Synchronous Cascading

For tougher I/O requirements, several boards, for example, several DS2211s, can be cascaded. The boards operate angle-synchronously if their time base connectors are connected. One DS2211 board acts as the angle master, and the other boards read out its time base, which allows signals to be generated and measured angle-synchronously on several boards. The same applies to the DS4002 Timing and Digital I/O Board and the DS5001 Digital Waveform Capture Board, which can both also be connected to the time base.
