The MicroAutoBox 1401/1507 from dSPACE is a prototyping solution for numerous gateway and bypassing applications in the field of electronic control unit (ECU) development/rapid prototyping. Like its big brother MicroAutoBox 1401/1505/1507, the MicroAutoBox 1401/1507 is a compact, vehicle-capable real-time platform with a high-end processor and CAN, LIN, and FlexRay bus interfaces. It also has a bypassing interface, but the difference is that it does not have the standard I/O. With its numerous high-quality MicroAutoBox features, the new “light” variation is a cost-effective solution for a whole range of different applications. When combined with RapidPro’s intelligent I/O subsystem, it is suitable for engine control systems. Especially for aviation applications, its IP module slot, which in the standard version is used for FlexRay, can be given an ARINC interface by dSPACE Engineering Services. The MATLAB/Simulink/Stateflow modeling tools can be seamlessly integrated into the dSPACE prototyping environment.
