Programmable Generic Interface (PGI1)

Connecting sensors and actuators to dSPACE systems

The Programmable Generic Interface (PGI1) allows a decentralized connection of sensors and actuators to dSPACE systems via diverse serial interfaces and protocols. Customer-specific solutions can also be built with the PGI1.

  • Generic interface box for decentralized connection of sensors and actuators to dSPACE systems via various serial interfaces and protocols (250 Mbit/s LVDS interface for PHS hardware or Ethernet for SCALEXIO hardware)
  • Emulation of sensor signals (such as yaw rate or crash sensors) with hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation
  • Highly flexible adaptation to customer requirements via piggyback modules and special FPGA firmware
