SCALEXIO Ethernet Boards

Additional Ethernet ports for SCALEXIO Processing Unit and SCALEXIO LabBox

The SCALEXIO Ethernet boards provide additional Ethernet interfaces to the SCALEXIO Processing Unit or the SCALEXIO LabBox. Boards that offer native BroadR-Reach support and an integrated Ethernet switch are available for both platforms, and they can be configured via modules.

Native BroadR-Reach Support

The DS6333-PE/-CS Automotive Ethernet Board and the DS6335-CS Ethernet Board provide five additional Ethernet ports for a SCALEXIO system. Four of these ports can be configured for BroadR-Reach support or standard Ethernet communication, depending on the modules used1). The fifth port always provides a standard Ethernet connection and is ideal for monitoring or for cascading two switches. The boards support applications such as ECU interfacing and simulator coupling, and enable you to configure a system as a simulation node in an Ethernet SOME/IP (scalable service-oriented middleware over IP) network. The cost-effective DS6335-CS is dedicated for use cases like simulator coupling and ECU interfacing and does not include SOME/IP support.

Key Benefits

  • 5 Ethernet ports
    • 4 ports can be configured for standard Ethernet (10/100/1000 Mbit/s) and automotive Ethernet (100/1000 Mbit/s)
    • 1 port is used for standard Ethernet only
  • Integrated managed Ethernet switch
  • 4 Gigabit Ethernet controllers  

Standard Ethernet Support

The DS6331-PE Ethernet Board and the DS6334-PE Ethernet Board provide four additional Ethernet ports for the SCALEXIO Processing Unit. They support applications which do not require BroadR-Reach connections or an Ethernet switch. The DS6334-PE is the cost-effective board for projects like bypassing and simulator coupling without the need for SOME/IP communication. If service-oriented communication (SOME/IP) has to be configured with the dSPACE Ethernet Configuration Package, the DS6331-PE is the right choice.

Key Benefits

  • Optimized boards tailored for different applications
  • 4 ports for 10/100/1000 Mbit/s standard Ethernet
  • 4 Gigabit Ethernet controllers

1) Modules for BroadR-Reach will be available at a later date. For more information, contact dSPACE Support
