The end of life of the MicroAutoBox variants DS1401/1511/1512 and DS1401/1512/1513 is planned for December 31, 2020. As of this date, no services of any kind will be available for this product. We advise against using the MicroAutoBox variants DS1401/1511/1512 and DS1401/1512/1513 in new projects. You can still buy the product until December 31, 2016. New releases of dSPACE software are guaranteed to continue supporting the MicroAutoBox variants DS1401/1511/1512 and DS1401/1512/1513 until at least the end of 2019.

For new projects we recommend that you use the successor variants DS1401/1511/1514 and DS1401/1513/1514.
The DS1514 is supported by dSPACE Releases since 2015-A.
Compared to their predecessors, the DS1401/1511/1514 and DS1401/1513/1514 have an even more powerful integrated Xilinx® Kintex®-7 FPGA (XC7K325T) that is freely programmable and can solve even the toughest prototyping tasks. Applications that require extremely fast control loops can be run directly on the FPGA. The Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA is supported by the Xilinx Vivado tool chain. Due to this, model-based FPGA programming via Xilinx System Generator is also possible with MATLAB Releases after 2013b.
If you have any questions or need further information, your contact in the dSPACE sales team will be glad to help.
Note that because of the discontinuation of the Xilinx ISE, model-based FPGA programming via Xilinx System Generator is only possible with MATLAB releases until R2013b.
Additional dedicated migration information would be published here.
