Additional ECU Interface Solutions

Customer-specific DPMEM PODs and on-chip debugging interfaces

Solutions for intrusive, real-time access to the ECU software support use cases in rapid control prototyping, bypassing, white-box testing, and synchronous measurement and calibration applications.

Application Areas

When the bypass method is used for rapid control prototyping, there are often several possible ways of diverting the flow of data from the ECU to the prototyping system and back. In cases where a dSPACE standard bypass interface is not applicable, a customer-specific plug-on device (POD) may be a suitable solution. dSPACE offers a wide range of options for such PODs, meeting the needs of numerous microcontroller types and individual applications. We recommend you consult us on bypassing issues at an early project stage, to gain maximum benefit from one of dSPACE’s standard solutions and significantly reduce engineering costs.

Key Benefits

Thanks to the company’s many years of experience with bypass interface development, dSPACE has a long list of well-proven solutions to offer. You can also order a custom bypass interface, precisely tailored to the microcontroller of your production ECU and your application.
