ConfigurationDesk is an intuitive, graphical configuration and implementation tool, ideal for handling applications from small Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) developments to large hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) tests based on dSPACE real-time hardware, such as SCALEXIO or MicroAutoBox III, including the implementation of behavior models and I/O function code.
ConfigurationDesk provides a clearly structured overview of the external devices (e.g., ECUs), configured real-time hardware, and the connected behavior models.

ConfigurationDesk 22.2 provides an improved FPGA workflow based on new FPGA containers generated by the FPGA Programming Blockset.
Motor simulation with MicroAutoBox III
To quickly and safely create model integration versions, for example, for testing new powertrains, HIL simulator farms can be equipped with workflow automation that is based on the dSPACE data management software SYNECT.
Product demonstration of how to integrate Functional Mock-up Units into an existing model by using ConfigurationDesk.
In this webinar recording dSPACE demonstrates how to easily connect your SCALEXIO Hardware to your models using ConfigurationDesk.
With ConfigurationDesk, you can easily implement powerful real-time applications for HIL or RCP scenarios. It allows for connecting Simulink® models and Functional Mock-up Units (FMU/FMI) to I/O functions and bus simulation containers (BSCs), configuring the SCALEXIO hardware or MicroAutoBox III, and controlling the entire process for the generation of real-time code. You can optionally define and document external devices, such as ECUs, electrical devices, and loads, including their signal properties (descriptions, electrical properties, failure simulation settings, and the capacity of electric loads). With this input, ConfigurationDesk generates real-time applications that will be executed on the real-time systems.
Working with ConfigurationDesk offers a wide range of benefits when developing and testing controllers or ECUs:
|Interactive Simulink support||
|Support of various model container formats||
|I/O configuration and documentation||For the graphical definition of the complete signal chain, the model ports have to be mapped to the I/O of the real-time hardware. ConfigurationDesk offers the following configuration features:
For documentation purposes, these features allow for handling an external device:
|Bus simulation||Support of configuring and implementing CAN, LIN, Ethernet, and FlexRay|
|Real-time code generation||Complete and automatic build process of all components of your real-time application|
Drive innovation forward. Always on the pulse of technology development.
