I/O Extensions for the Simulink-Programmable FPGA1) of MicroAutoBox II

Flexible Extension

The FPGA technology integrated in MicroAutoBox II addresses use scenarios with varying I/O requirements. For greater flexibility, the I/O converters are outsourced to separate add-on modules, which can easily be integrated into the MicroAutoBox II variants 1401/1511/1514 and 1401/1513/1514 (only one module at a time). It is easy to change the modules later on.

Three Available I/O Modules

  • The DS1552 Multi-I/O Module is a universal I/O module that offers many powerful I/O converters and several interfaces. For example, it can be used for FPGA-based cylinder pressure indication.
  • The DS1553 AC Motor Control Module is an I/O module with I/O optimized for controlling various electric drives.
  • The DS1554 Engine Control I/O Module is an I/O module tailored for the advanced control of combustion engines. Together with the powerful FPGA of the MicroAutoBox DS1514 variants it allows control interventions even during an active combustion cycle.
