dSPACE Release 5.2

The following list gives you an overview of the main innovations in dSPACE Release 5.2.

dSPACE Release 5.2 is the last dSPACE Release to offer general MATLAB R13 support. The only exception to this is TargetLink, the production code generator.

Product Details

RTI CAN MultiMessage Blockset 1.4


  • Dynamic message triggering option for each message: global enabling, spontaneous transmission (kick-out), cyclic message activation, etc.
  • New options for kick-out triggering
  • Enhanced functions in the Update/Base Time for RX and TX

Manipulation Options

  • Various manipulation options for messages and signals, for example, checksum, parity, toggle, counter
  • Enhanced options for the Gateway Mode to switch directly from gateway signals to other sources such as a counter
  • Dynamic message length (for a defined number of TX events)

RTI LIN MultiMessage Blockset 1.1

For handling LIN setups based on LDF (LIN database file) and DBC files

  • Extension to Real-Time Interface
  • Graphical configuration based on a LIN description file
