The DS6001 Processor Board is a highly performant and compact two-slot processing unit for SCALEXIO LabBox and SCALEXIO AutoBox. It is the perfect choice for real-time applications that require fast closed-loop rates or high I/O bandwidth.
The DS6001 Processor Board equipped with an Intel® Core™ i7-6820EQ quad-core processor is the most compact processing unit in the dSPACE SCALEXIO portfolio. It is an excellent fit for application areas where system size matters, such as desktop-based real-time systems for function development and testing. The DS6001 features high computation power and excellent real-time performance, with minimum jitter and latency. It is the perfect choice for use cases with high requirements regarding computation power and data bandwidth (e.g., assisted, highly automated, and autonomous driving) as well as real-time applications that require fast closed-loop rates (e.g., electric drives and vibration cancellation).
All of the four cores of the DS6001 are available for parallel computing of real-time applications, which makes the board ideal for demanding tasks. The SCALEXIO real-time system can easily be scaled by connecting additional I/O boards or coupling several DS6001 Processor Boards or SCALEXIO Processing Units to form a multiprocessor system. The DS6001 provides an onboard Ethernet I/O interface for direct real-time model access from external devices via TCP/IP or UDP/IP protocol or to provide an ECU Interface (e.g., for bypassing).

The SCALEXIO Hypervisor Extension is based on a kernel-based virtual machine (KVM). It runs the SCALEXIO real-time operating system and virtual machines with standard Linux distributions simultaneously. This lets you integrate Linux real-time and non-real-time applications into the DS6001 Processor Board environment supporting low-latency, high-bandwidth data exchange between the two. The SCALEXIO Hypervisor Extension as an optional extension is the ideal choice to integrate Linux-based modeling and simulation tools and allows for a reuse of existing models, such as Functional Mock-up Units that were developed in an earlier development phase. Virtualization saves hardware installation space and reduces hardware maintenance costs, because no additional external PC hardware is required.
IOCNET is the primary communication network for SCALEXIO systems. It is used for connecting a SCALEXIO system using the DS6001 with an additional I/O or processing hardware.
The integrated multiprocessor support for SCALEXIO allows for connecting additional processing hardware via IOCNET to increase computational power and I/O bandwidth to provide a solution that can handle even the most demanding applications.
