DS1007 PPC Processor Board1)

Computing power and small I/O latencies

The DS1007 processor board provides high computing power combined with fast I/O access. The single-slot board offers an onboard Gigabit Ethernet host and I/O interface. It can also be used for in-vehicle applications and allows autonomous booting from internal flash memory as well as USB data logging.

The end of life for this product has been set. Please see the footnote for more detailed information.

Application Areas 

The DS1007 PPC Processor Board is one of the processor boards that form the core of dSPACE’s PHS hardware. The DS1007 is an excellent fit when your application models require a combination of high computing power and fast closed-loop rates (e.g., for electric motor control, advanced driver assistance systems or active noise and vibration cancellation).

Key Benefits

The DS1007 features a QorlQ P5020 dual-core processor running at 2 GHz. It offers an integrated, high-data-throughput Ethernet host interface for setting up modular systems without additional host interface cards. The DS1007 is highly expandable. Its Ethernet I/O interface can be used for direct real-time model access via the TCP/IP or UDP/IP protocol and for bypassing. USB mass storage devices can be connected for long-term data logging and booting applications via the integrated USB interface.

Dual-Core Processor for More Computing Power

You can set up a multicore system by using the individual cores of the dual-core processor and easily assign the I/O  boards by graphical programming via RTI-MP. The DS1007 dual-core board speeds up all your applications with parallel computing and high-performance data exchange between the cores.

Multiprocessor Setup

Several DS1007 boards can be connected together via additional optical interfaces (DS911 Gigalink Module) to create different powerful DS1007-based multiprocessor systems. This lets you increase the processing power and I/O capabilities for real-time applications far beyond the individual board performance. Synchronization between the boards is ensured, since interrupts can be dispatched to other DS1007 boards via hardware, with minimal latencies.

1)The end of life of the DS1007 PPC Processor Board is planned for December 31, 2024. You can still buy the product up to and including December 31, 2021. New Releases of dSPACE software will still support theDS1007 PPC Processor Board until at least the end of 2023. After the end of life, no services of any kind will be available for this product. We advise against using the DS1007 PPC Processor Board in new projects. For new projects we recommend that you use SCALEXIO, the latest dSPACE technology for modular real-time systems.
