Universal experiment software

  • 09-Feb-2011 01:36 EST

ControlDesk Next Generation, dSPACE’s universal experiment software, is an all-round tool for the entire development and validation process for electronic control units (ECUs). The tool covers the development process stages of rapid control prototyping, hardware-in-the-loop simulation, ECU calibration and diagnostics, analysis of vehicle bus systems, and more. This central experiment software provides users with a homogeneous tool environment to work in, reducing the costs of acquisition and maintenance and avoiding errors that arise during tool coupling. ControlDesk Next Generation brings together the functionalities of dSPACE’s established tools ControlDesk and CalDesk and adds many new features. These include a new signal editor for defining stimulus signals, time-synchronous measurement across different data sources (such as simulation platforms and ECUs), integrated ECU access, new layouting and instrumentation options, and an extended user interface for bus access called the bus navigator, which supports CAN, LIN, FlexRay with dSPACE hardware, and PC-based interfaces.
