The SCALEXIO AutoBox is a very powerful in-vehicle system that offers tremendous processing power, excellent real-time properties, and comprehensive support for automotive bus systems. With its increased resistance to shock and vibration, an integrated DC power supply, and its extended temperature range, it is the ideal choice for testing new functions at an early stage in real test drives. Based on its wide variety of I/O, bus, and network interfaces, SCALEXIO addresses a wide range of application areas from A as in ‘autonomous driving’ to Z as in ‘zero emissions’.
The SCALEXIO AutoBox is a robust chassis for in-vehicle use. It provides up to seven slots for SCALEXIO I/O boards and one system slot intended for the DS6001 Processor Board. The SCALEXIO AutoBox offers a wide-range power supply to operate with 12 V, 24 V, and 48 V electrical systems, and it also supports operation at cranking conditions, such as temporary voltage drops. The chassis is equipped with shock and vibration dampers and an optimized cooling system. Remote power-up and -down is provided via different interfaces, e.g., terminal 15 or wake-up on CAN. The modular concept of the SCALEXIO AutoBox and the many I/O, bus, and network connections allow for use-case-optimized system setups. Furthermore, programmable FPGA subsystems let you implement user-specific hardware accelerators or interfaces. To increase the computation performance or the number of interfaces, you can combine several SCALEXIO AutoBoxes to one real-time system.
You can use all SCALEXIO I/O boards in the SCALEXIO AutoBox along with a wide range of dSPACE software to configure settings and implement models, among other things.
