With its Ethernet blocksets, dSPACE enables the real-time simulation of service-oriented communication in Ethernet networks of electronic control units (ECUs). These networks play an important role in modern driver assistance systems, new comfort and entertainment functions, and numerous other functionalities.
Ethernet is an integral part of various dSPACE applications and solutions, where it is used for communication between dSPACE systems and other systems, for co-simulation coupling, etc. It can also be used as a vehicle network or bypassing interface.
dSPACE Ethernet implementation software allows customers to efficiently integrate Ethernet functions into a wide range of applications. dSPACE offers blocksets for easy UDP/IP- and TCP/IP-based communication. The dSPACE Ethernet Configuration Package lets customers import communication matrices and supports SOME/IP middleware.
Ethernet is a long-established networking technology for the most diverse applications that was first used for networking local computers. Since its beginnings, the technology has evolved and now offers great features such as flexibility, efficient pricing, and accumulated know-how. As an ISO Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model, Ethernet can be tailored to many different applications, allowing it to enter more fields, such as industrial automation. Today, it is even being used in the vehicle.
dSPACE Ethernet implementation software offers an easy-to-use graphical user interface and application-tailored solutions. Some blocksets are supported by gPTP (generalized Precision Timing Protocol) to ensure synchronous data feed.
