With the ACE Kits, dSPACE offers universities specifically combined packages of high-performance hardware and comprehensive software tools for developing and testing complex control systems in courses and for research purposes.
Core Components of the ACE Kits
dSPACE ACE Kits make it easy to realize even the most complex open and closed loop control concepts, from the initial draft using block diagrams to the final online optimization of the controller in real time. To work with ACE Kits, you use easy-to-operate, intuitive Microsoft Windows® tools that can transfer your Simulink® models to the dSPACE real-time hardware in seconds. Observing the effects that parameter changes have on your system’s behavior becomes as easy as child's play.
The increasing demand of electrical power requires highly efficient power electronics. With the help of intelligently controlled power electronics, voltages can be transformed in such a way that the different control systems are always supplied with the required DC or AC voltages. dSPACE also offers a Power Electronic Kit that supports your projects with state-of-the-art tools.
|ACE Kit Package||Description|
|ACE Kit MicroAutoBox III||
The MicroAutoBox III is a compact and robust real-time prototyping system for rapid function development in the vehicle. Depending on the application, which is aimed for, it can be adapted using specially customized I/O modules. Whether vehicle communication, control of combustion engine or electric motor, or the development of charging controllers – Get in contact with us and together we will find the best solution for you.
|ACE Kit MicroLabBox||
The MicroLabBox is an all-in-one development system for the laboratory which unites compact size and low system costs with high performance and versatility. In addition to the classic automotive applications for RCP and HIL, whether processor-based or FPGA-based, the MicroLabBox is also used for projects in medicine, robotics, geophysics, or aviation.
|ACE Kit SCALEXIO||
SCALEXIO computation units form the basis of the modular real-time systems. They offer high computing power per core and high parallelism. A built-in IOCNET board allows real-time communication with further SCALEXIO computing units or I/O units. You can choose from ACE Kits with various casing options:
|ACE Kit Power Electronics||
The ambitious goal of 100% environmentally friendly mobility and power generation can only be achieved with efficient, reliable, and intelligent power electronics. The ACE Kit Power Electronics fulfills the requirements for highest switching frequencies in computation and I/O connectivity. Use the Vitis Model Composer, a Xilinx® Toolbox for MATLAB®/Simulink®, for FPGA programming, or rely on the topology-oriented simulation of the dSPACE Electrical Power System Simulation (EPSS) Package in combination with the MATLAB/Simulink Simscape Electrical toolbox to test power electronics circuitry.
|ACE Kit Smart Charging||
Highly developed charging communication is the foundation for high vehicle availability. Options such as charging with alternating or direct current, automatic payment methods or the choice from the most inexpensive tariffs to connection with a home energy management system are possible with the newest charging technologies. When developing intelligent charging in the context of research projects, not only implementation in line with the applicable standards plays an important role, but also the opportunity to build a deeper understanding of various logging options and extendible systems through open models. The ACE Kit Smart Charging provides the basic equipment for implementing and testing smart charging according to global charging standards. It can be combined with dSPACE real-time systems and supplemented by further test possibilities.
|ACE Kit DS1104||
The inexpensive starter system is based on our single-board technology. The DS1104 is optimally suited for a number of applications in rapid control prototyping with low to medium performance requirements.
