DS6101 Multi-I/O Board

SCALEXIO I/O board with signal conditioning for automotive systems

The DS6101 provides a large variety of I/O functions needed for hardware-in-the-loop simulation with a SCALEXIO system and can be used for generating and measuring typical automotive signals. This makes the DS6101 ideally suited for applications with extensive I/O requirements. Channel configuration is done via software.

 

Application Areas

The DS6101 comprises a large variety of I/O functions needed for hardware-in-the-loop simulation and can be used for generating and measuring typical automotive signals. This makes the DS6101 ideally suited for applications with extensive I/O requirements. For failure simulation, you can connect additional hardware to your system. The same holds true for bus communication. There you can use the DS2671 Bus Board  or the DS6301 CAN/LIN Board.

Key Benefits

The DS6101 Multi I/O board offers 69 I/O channels for voltage-related functions, including analog, digital, resistance, and special input/output groups, for example for lambda probe simulation. The integrated signal conditioning is tailored to automotive project requirements, such as voltages of 12 V, 24 V, and 48 V.

I/O Functionality

The I/O channels of the DS6101 offer software-configurable I/O functions. You can choose between analog and digital inputs and outputs, resistance simulation channels, and special I/O channels. All channels are defined and configured graphically in the dSPACE ConfigurationDesk® software.
