Fault Simulation

DS1450 Bus FIU Board1) for fault simulation with dSPACE Simulator

Offers the essential options of electrical fault insertion for the physical layer of buses such as FlexRay. These options include short circuits, open circuits, and varying termination resistance.

DS1450 Bus FIU Board Specification
  • Supports 4 bus channels in parallel
  • Usable for dSPACE Simulator Mid-Size and Full-Size as well as HIL systems based on expansion boxes
  • Suitable for differential bus systems (FlexRay, CAN, etc.)
  • Relay-based
  • Uses a specialized ControlDesk failure pattern
Fault insertion options
  • Short circuit to ground and to any user-defined potential (typically UBAT)
  • Open circuit
  • Varying termination resistance
  • Switching cross short-circuits

1) The end of life of the DS1450 Bus FIU 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 the DS1450 Bus FIU 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 DS1450 Bus FIU Board in new projects. For new projects we recommend that you use SCALEXIO, the latest dSPACE technology for modular real-time systems.

Our high-current fault simulation unit on dSPACE Simulator supports fault simulation on ECU inputs and outputs. One DS5355 High Current FIU Controller Card supports up to 19 signal channels on two DS5390 High Current FIU Relay Trays. Due to its modularity, the FIU controller card can be expanded to increase the number of channels. These relay trays allow for failures with currents of up to 50 A and voltages of up to 300 V.
The FIU is controlled from ControlDesk via a serial RS232 or CAN.
