The dSPACE SCALEXIO product line has been extended with the DS6001 Processor Board. It combines high computation power and comprehensive real-time performance with the most compact design for processor hardware in the SCALEXIO product line. Integrating the DS6001 in the SCALEXIO LabBox chassis results in a desktop system that lets you develop functions (rapid control prototyping, or RCP) or perform hardware-in-the-loop testing (HIL) directly at the developer´s workstation.

The DS6001 is equipped with a quad-core Intel Core i7-6820EQ processor. Its high processing power and minimized jitter and latencies lead to an excellent real time performance. Thus, the DS6001 is particularly suitable for real-time applications with fast control loops and high I/O bandwidths such as electric drives, vibration control, and data acquisition. Moreover, it is possible to distribute the different computation tasks to individual processor cores and to join multiple DS6001 Processor Boards to form a multiprocessor system. Subsequently, processing power and I/O capabilities can be significantly increased for real-time applications even beyond the scope of the individual processor board.

The DS6001 Processor Boards and SCALEXIO I/O hardware are interconnected via the dSPACE IOCNET network technology. The latter is specifically designed to provide large I/O bandwidth with low latency and jitter, even for more complex setups with high requirements. Moreover, the DS6001 provides an integrated Ethernet I/O interface for direct TCP/IP or UDP/IP access from the real-time model. This way, ECUs can be efficiently connected to the SCALEXIO system in bypassing scenarios, for example.
