Overview of Tools (Selection)

dSPACE systems offer multiple benefits for a large variety of development activities in aerospace applications. Typical use cases range from rapid control prototyping to software-in-the-loop simulation and hardware-in-the-loop simulation for single or networked systems.

  • Compact real-time prototyping system with various I/O interfaces and functional safety mechanisms for use in aircraft
  • Shock- and vibration-resistant hardware according to DO-160
  • Intuitive software environment with smooth Simulink® integration
  • Available in several standard variants (each with different interfaces and I/O)
  • All variants can integrate an additional embedded PC
  • All-in-one development system for the laboratory
  • Combines compact size and low system costs with high performance and versatility
  • Quick and easy setup of control, test or measurement applications 
  • Modular real-time system that can be used for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and rapid control prototyping (RCP) projects
  • Highly scalable system architecture
  • Provides high-performance real-time processors for demanding applications as well as comprehensive, precise, and fast I/O capabilities
