With decades of experience, dSPACE knows that electric drives have special requirements and offers a comprehensive tool chain for virtual validation, rapid control prototyping (RCP), ECU autocoding, and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation. The dSPACE products interoperate seamlessly to provide a convenient development and test environment. Therefore, you can benefit from hardware such as powerful real-time processors, user-programmable FPGAs, and comprehensive I/O interfaces. dSPACE also offers dedicated function libraries for data processing and for controller or plant models. Sophisticated software supports the transition from the first function model in Simulink® to comprehensive real-time tests. dSPACE hardware and software provide a seamless tool chain whose individual parts are accurately aligned with each other.

dSPACE supports customers worldwide from the first controller development to the last approval tests. Throughout the development process, dSPACE Engineering Services provide assistance for even the most challenging projects. This is to ensure the greatest flexibility at the highest convenience.

Model-in-the-Loop Simulation

Virtual validation or model-in-the-loop simulation gives OEMs the tools to perform verification and validation tasks earlier in the development process and reduce the time to market.

Controller Design

Rapid control prototyping or controller design allows for accelerating design iterations and reduces the time for developing control algorithms on the real ECU.

Controller Implementation

For controller implementation, the dSPACE production code generator, TargetLink, generates highly efficient C code and allows for early verification through built-in simulation and testing.

Controller Tests

Hardware-in-the-loop simulation or controller tests done with dSPACE simulator enable realistic, real-time simulation of a wide range of electric drives systems.


In view of growing environmental concerns, vehicle concepts of the future must focus on alternative power systems. dSPACE offers a wide range of products and decades of experience for supporting your projects.

Electric Power Industry

dSPACE products offer comprehensive support for developing electric power industry applications – from controller design and rapid control prototyping to controller implementation and controller tests.
