dSPACE offers Ethernet configuration package
First tool for simulating service-based Ethernet communication in real time
dSPACE announced an Ethernet Configuration Package that it describes as the first tool available to enable the real-time simulation of service-oriented communication in Ethernet networks of electronic control units (ECUs). Such networks play an important role in modern driver assistance systems, new comfort and entertainment functions, and numerous other applications.
The new dSPACE Ethernet Configuration Package consists of two components: The dSPACE Ethernet Configuration Tool and the RTI Ethernet Configuration Blockset.
The dSPACE Ethernet Configuration Tool lets users configure a dSPACE system as a simulation node in a service-based Ethernet network. After a FIBEX 4 file is imported, the tool displays the FIBEX elements in an organized tree structure. Users can select any of the elements for the simulation via drag-and-drop. The most important attributes of the FIBEX elements are also displayed in structured views.
The RTI Ethernet Configuration Blockset provides a simple graphic method for modeling service-based communication in MATLAB®/Simulink®. For example, users can design their own functions to perform restbus simulation for Ethernet/IP communication.
Extension to dSPACE Ethernet portfolio
The new Ethernet Configuration Package expands dSPACE’s portfolio of Ethernet development tools, which includes the DS1006 Processor Board for hardware-in-the-loop simulation and the MicroAutoBox for rapid control prototyping.
