DS6101 Multi-I/O Board

SCALEXIO I/O board with signal conditioning for automotive systems

The DS6101 provides a large variety of I/O functions needed for hardware-in-the-loop simulation with a SCALEXIO system and can be used for generating and measuring typical automotive signals. This makes the DS6101 ideally suited for applications with extensive I/O requirements. Channel configuration is done via software.

 

Application Area

The DS6101 comprises a large variety of I/O functions needed for hardware-in-the-loop simulation and can be used for generating and measuring typical automotive signals. This makes the DS6101 ideally suited for applications with extensive I/O requirements. For failure simulation, you can connect additional hardware to your system. The same holds true for bus communication. There you can use the DS2671 Bus Board.

 

Key Benefits

The DS6101 Multi I/O board offers 69 I/O channels for voltage-related functions, including analog, digital, resistance, and special input/output groups, for example for lambda probe simulation. The integrated signal conditioning is tailored to automotive project requirements, such as voltages of 12 V, 24 V, and 48 V.

I/O Functionality

The I/O channels of the DS6101 offer software-configurable I/O functions. You can choose between analog and digital inputs and outputs, resistance simulation channels, and special I/O channels. All channels are defined and configured graphically in the dSPACE ConfigurationDesk® software.
