Product Description Planned Availability
DS1007 PPC Processor Board High-performance processor board with integrated Ethernet interfaces for host and I/O communication. For more information, please have a look at the product website (link below). Available since early 2014. Supported by dSPACE Releases since 2014-A.

The DS1007 is more than just a suitable replacement. It also provides numerous additional benefits such as its greatly improved computation power with its 2 GHz dual-core PowerPC processor and its integrated high-bandwidth Ethernet host interface for setting up modular systems without additional host interface cards. Furthermore, USB mass storage devices can be connected via the integrated USB-interface for long-term data logging and autonomous booting of real-time applications without a host connection.
