(Released in July 2009)

The main innovations in dSPACE Release 6.4 are outlined below:

Product Details
ASM 2.1
  • ASM Trailer for ASM Vehicle Dynamics
  • ASM Engine support in ModelDesk
AutomationDesk® 2.3 (with Real-Time Testing 1.6) AutomationDesk:
  • Enable & disable test steps/sequences/folders for execution
  • Improved plotting & reporting, e.g. statistics and overviews at the beginning of the report
  • Real-Time Test Manager Library
  • Further extensions to COM API
Real-Time Testing 1.6:
  • RT-RS232 library
    • Direct access to onboard RS232 interfaces (DS1005 and DS1006)
    • No RTI block in model necessary
  • CAN library for MicroAutoBox
  • Restart data replay within a single RTT sequence
CalDesk® 3.0 New features with CalDesk:
  • Automate typical tasks in CalDesk, create and configure experiments automatically via scripts
  • Use integrated Python interpreter with syntax highlighting for scripting
  • Create virtual signals (calculated variables) during post-processing based on calculation formulas and recorded data
  • Create complex and photo-realistic layouts using an extended set of instruments
  • Import and update SDF files for dSPACE devices much faster
New features with Variable Editor:
  • Update A2L files directly in CalDesk via integrated Variable Editor, e.g. by parsing map files
  • Create individual groups in A2L files and copy and paste variable links
New features with ECU flash programming tool: Use DCI-GSI1 to flash brain-dead ECUs, i.e., ECUs whose flash contents may be corrupted.
ConfigurationDesk® 3.0.1
  • Bugfixes and minor enhancements
ControlDesk® 3.4
  • Support of DS802 PHS Link Board and DS4004 HIL Digital I/O Board
  • Bus Navigator with new design replaces CAN Navigator:
    • New tree view available (with messages grouped by ECUs)
    • Replay, monitoring, logging and filters directly accessible via tree
    • Logging, replay and monitoring can be started and stopped separately per controller or globally
  • Several enhancements for data capture, e.g.:
    • Option to preserve capture variables and capture settings when the simulation model (SDF file) is replaced
    • Export and import capture variables
    • Remove of all, selected, or invalid capture variables
    • New autoname mode for Stream to Disk data acquisition
  • Support for strings longer than 128 characters in TRC file (e.g., block and variable names)
  • Bugfixes and more minor enhancements
FlexRay Configuration Package 2.1
  • FIBEX 3.0 support
  • PDU-based signal chain
  • Signal manipulation via TRC file
  • Automatic alive counter realization, configurable via TRC file
  • Frame transmission manipulation via TRC file
  • UpdateBit manipulation via TRC file
  • Feature-based TRC file composition
  • Adjustable safety margins before and after FlexRay tasks
  • Send and receive wakeup pattern (also before network startup)
ModelDesk 2.2
  • Support of further ASM models:
    • ASM Engine
    • ASM Trailer
    • ASM Traffic
  • Bugfixes and minor enhancements
MotionDesk 2.1.3
  • Bugfixes and minor enhancements
RTI AUTOSAR Package 1.0
  • RTI extension for RCP and HIL to integrate existing AUTOSAR software components and compositions into a Simulink model
RTI CAN Blockset 2.6.8
  • Bugfixes and minor enhancements
RTI CAN MultiMessage Blockset 2.4.1
  • Support of baud rate change with inport
  • Bugfixes and minor enhancements
RTI LIN Blockset 2.0.17
  • Bugfixes and minor enhancements
RTI LIN MultiMessage Blockset 1.7
  • Support of node configuration
    • Configurable LIN network serial number
    • Enable/disable automatic configuration
    • Enable and disable node, also with automatic configuration
    • Support of configured and preconfigured slave nodes
    • Master request and slave response frames also useable in model during automatic node configuration
    • Slave: Conditional change NAD Service
    • Slave: Read by Identifier Service
RTI Bypass Blockset 2.6
  • Exchange ECU address, data type and value conversion method of variables dynamically without modifying and recompiling the Simulink model
  • Use improved m-API to exchange the ECU interface type more easily via automation scripts (e.g. from XCP on CAN to JTAG/OCDS).
  • Use RTI Bypass Blockset with and without A2L-files. ECU interface parameters typically contained in the A2L-file can be set via the m-API.
