dSPACE (Wixom, MI) offers an additional Processing Unit for SCALEXIO hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test systems. Equipped with an octa-core Intel Xeon Processor E5, the new Processing Unit is suitable for the parallel execution of complex and computationally intensive simulation models. According to dSPACE, this enables engineers to use high-fidelity, physically realistic models, increases model accuracy, and makes HIL simulations more realistic. With the octa-core variant, dSPACE extends the product line with a second variant to address the variety of customers’ application scenarios. The unit is recommended for customers who often have to compute very large simulation models in parallel, such as those for vehicle dynamics simulation with detailed chassis and tire models. Both variants—quad- and octa-core—of the SCALEXIO Processing Unit support multiprocessor applications where multiple Processing Units are interconnected.
