Patch 2.0p2 for dSPACE Release 2.0

Patch 2.0p2 for dSPACE Release 2.0, Build-No. 1999040901, corrects the following problems:

  • The CAN interrupt block of the DS1103 CAN Blockset is not supported properly; all CAN interrupts are disabled permanently.
  • RTI CAN Blockset for DS4302 offers a choice of transceiver types. For RS485 and C252 transceivers, the code generation of RTI CAN Blockset 1.0 uses wrong macro definitions.
  • With ControlDesk® in Animation mode, the DSP application exhibited strange behavior in some cases.
  • The RTI build process hangs if subsystem names contain trailing blanks.
The patch diskette also contains an update of the DS1103 CAN Firmware 1.0. This update has to be performed by hand.

If you use one or more of these products from CD 2.0, it is recommended that you install Patch 2.0p2. Please remember that you have to reinstall the patch after reinstalling dSPACE software.
