Rapid prototyping

  • 26-Aug-2010 02:42 EDT

MicroAutoBox II is the next generation of dSPACE's rapid prototyping platform for in-vehicle use. It offers ECU developers increased real-time computation of controller models and improved processing power from a board equipped with an IBM PowerPC processor running at 900 MHz. The MicroAutoBox II features direct connection to a host PC's ethernet interface, while another interface connects to external devices and expands use into new application areas such as driver assistance systems. Embedded PCs can be used for processing video data or for controlling analog or digital displays, and MicroAutoBox II offers direct connection to these embedded PCs via an ethernet bus interface. Other benefits include a compact design and passive cooling as well as mechanical robustness and an improved boot-up time. MicroAutoBox is suitable for various rapid control prototyping applications including vehicle dynamics, powertrains, body control, x-by-wire, and aerospace applications.
