dSPACE: Simulating Ethernet Networks in Real Time
With its new Ethernet Configuration Package, dSPACE  (Wixom, MI) enables the real-time simulation of service-oriented communication in Ethernet networks of electronic control units (ECUs). These networks play an important role in modern driver assistance systems, new comfort and entertainment functions, and numerous other functionalities. The new dSPACE Ethernet Configuration Package:
- Allows users to configure a dSPACE system as a simulation node in a service-based Ethernet network. Displays the FIBEX elements in a clearly organized tree structure.
- Allows users to select any of the elements for the simulation via drag & drop.
- Provides a simple graphic method for modeling service-based communication in MATLAB/Simulink.
- Expands dSPACE's long-trusted portfolio of Ethernet development tools, which includes the DS1006 Processor Board for hardware-in-the-loop simulation and the MicroAutoBox for rapid control prototyping.
