End-of-life announcement PHS Hardware for Modular Systems

The end-of-life date is December 31,2024.

End-of-Life Information

The end-of-life date is December 31, 2024. As of this date, no services of any kind will be available for PHS Hardware for Modular Systems. You can still buy the related products up to and including December 31, 2021. New Releases of dSPACE software will still support the PHS Hardware for Modular Systems until at least the end of 2023. We advise against using PHS Hardware for Modular Systems in new projects. 

Services Until / Date  
End of life announced Mar 2020

Customer support services provided Dec 2024  


For new projects we recommend that you use SCALEXIO, the latest dSPACE technology for modular real-time systems.

SCALEXIO is available from small to large laboratory and in-vehicle systems. It provides very high processing power, modern I/O, bus, and network interfaces. It is entirely software-configurable, which lets you adapt to changing requirements flexibly and easily. The SCALEXIO-based real-time systems can be connected to your existing PHS-based dSPACE systems.

If you have any questions or need further information, your contact in the dSPACE sales team will be glad to help.

Migration Information

SCALEXIO is supported by the established dSPACE toolchain. When you work with SCALEXIO, the real-time application is generated with ConfigurationDesk instead of Real-Time Interface (RTI). The Simulink model is linked to the I/O configuration in ConfigurationDesk via model port blocks. You will find valuable information about the main differences and migration aspects in dSPACE Help: Model Interface Package for Simulink > Modeling Guide > Information for Former RTI Users.
