dSPACE SystemDesk 3.0: Performance Boost for AUTOSAR Projects

• Higher performance • Closer TargetLink coupling • Virtual verification of software architectures and ECUs

Wixom, Michigan, March 14, 2011: With a major performance boost in Version 3.0 of SystemDesk, the architecture software, dSPACE has optimized its AUTOSAR modeling and simulation environment for use in production projects.

Higher Performance for Large-Scale Projects

SystemDesk's enhanced performance makes it ideal for large-scale projects. Its simplified user handling and reworked modeling workflow support users working on complex AUTOSAR developments.

Tighter TargetLink Coupling

To give users the benefits of AUTOSAR throughout the entire development process, the interaction between SystemDesk and TargetLink has been strengthened. The two tools can now exchange bundles of AUTOSAR files belonging to a software component, including supplementary documentation. This leads to greater transparency, and AUTOSAR round trips can be made with a minimum of user actions.

Virtual Verification of Software Architectures and ECUs

The sooner errors are found in the development process, the easier and cheaper it is to correct them. So in addition to supporting software-in-the-loop simulation, SystemDesk 3.0 lets developers execute AUTOSAR applications as virtual electronic control units (ECUs) on an evaluation board. This means that ECU code can be simulated on the target processor at a very early stage.

Facts about dSPACE

dSPACE develops and distributes tools for the development of electronic control units (ECUs) and mechatronic systems worldwide. Using dSPACE systems, manufacturers of controllers and ECUs are able to dramatically reduce their development times and costs, and systematically increase their productivity.

The company also provides comprehensive services from on-site user training to customer-specific system engineering such as complex turn-key HIL test systems.

dSPACE has over 850 employees worldwide at its headquarters in Paderborn, at the Project Centers in Munich and Stuttgart, and also in its subsidiaries in the USA, France, the UK, Japan and China. In addition, numerous distributors provide customer support in other countries.
