DS4201 Prototyping Board

Integrating customized circuits

The DS4201 Prototyping Board is a general-purpose platform intended to integrate customized circuits into the dSPACE system. The board provides the complete dSPACE PHS-bus interface electronics and space for mounting custom devices.

Key benefits

The DS4201 Prototyping Board makes it possible to integrate customized circuits into dSPACE systems. It is the interface between custom I/O devices that can be mounted directly on the board and the dSPACE PHS bus, thus enabling the connection to the dSPACE system.
