dSPACE actively participates in standardization bodies to share its long-standing experience of working with processes, methods, and tools in automotive software development.

Automotive SerDes Alliance (ASA)

The Automotive SerDes Alliance (ASA) is a consortium of automotive technology companies with the goal of advancing the standardization of asymmetrical, high-performance SerDes (serializer/deserializer) technology for broadband connection of sensors for autonomous driving.


The Association for Standardization of Automation- and Measuring Systems provides standards for data models, interfaces, and syntax specifications for a variety of applications (e.g., testing, evaluation, simulation).

AUTOSAR Development Partnership

An industry partnership, founded to jointly develop and commercially release a standardized electrical/electronic (e/e) architecture concept.

CHAdeMO: Establishing Standards for Fast DC Charging

As a member of the CHAdeMO Association, dSPACE is promoting the development and establishment of CHAdeMO as a charging standard.

CharIN: Making CCS a Global Charging Standard

In collaboration with CharIN and its members, dSPACE will drive forward the development and establishment of the Combined Charging System (CCS) as a global standard for charging battery-powered vehicles. 


FlexRay is a standard for in-vehicle, time-triggered communication systems.

Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI)

The Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) is an open standard for the tool-independent exchange and integration of plant models that are provided by various tool vendors.

FMI thus simplifies the use of best-in-class tools for specific modeling tasks and the consistent reuse of models. 

ISO 26262

ISO 26262 is a standard for safety-relevant electrics/electronics systems in road vehicles to ensure their functional safety. As a member of the Standards Committee Automotive, dSPACE was actively involved in the drafting of ISO 26262:2018. The standard strengthens the use of virtual test methods for the validation of safety-critical functions.


ISO 21448 addresses the Safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF). It is a specification that provides safety guidance on autonomous vehicle functions. dSPACE offers a consultancy service to define measures that comply with SOTIF and implement them into processes, methodologies, tooling, and verification and validation criteria.


JasPar is an industry partnership with the objective to promote automotive software technology and to cut development costs by encouraging Japanese companies to collaboratively develop non-competitive technologies (such as automotive LAN enabling technology, middleware and software platforms).

MIPI Alliance

The MIPI Alliance is a collaborative global organization with the goal of designing and promoting interface specifications for mobile and mobile-influenced products.

OPEN Alliance

OPEN Alliance is designed to encourage wide scale adoption of Ethernet-based, single pair unshielded cable networks as the standard in automotive applications.
