DS2002/DS2003 Multi-Channel A/D Boards1)

High-Resolution A/D Boards

The DS2002 and DS2003 Multi-Channel A/D Boards provide various resolutions, channel numbers and speeds for A/D conversion. The boards can be used to convert the analog voltages or currents from sensors (pressure, temperature, etc.), or from electronic control units (ECUs).   

Application Areas

A/D conversion is an element of most applications in rapid control prototyping and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation. In rapid control prototyping, sensors for pressure, temperature, or other signals provide analog voltages or currents. In HIL simulations, the electronic control unit provides analog voltages or currents that control the simulated actuators.

Key Benefits

The A/D boards provide various channel numbers, resolutions, and speeds for you to choose from. The table below gives you an initial overview. The boards can be configured from Simulink® by using Real-Time Interface. You can select the voltage range and the resolution separately for each channel or A/D converter.

1)The end of life of the dSPACE PHS (peripheral high-speed) hardware for modular systems is planned for December 31, 2024. You can still buy the related products up to and including December 31, 2021. New Releases of dSPACE software will still support the dSPACE PHS hardware for modular systems until at least the end of 2023. After the end of life, no services of any kind will be available for these products. We advise against using the PHS hardware products in new projects. For new projects we recommend that you use SCALEXIO, the latest dSPACE technology for modular real-time systems.
