Modular real-time system
The modular dSPACE SCALEXIO system can be used for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and rapid control prototyping (RCP) applications. It is highly scalable, provides high-performance processor technology for demanding real-time requirements as well as comprehensive, precise, and fast I/O capabilities. SCALEXIO systems are configured in dSPACE ConfigurationDesk.

High-performance processor technology the most for demanding real-time requirements

Comprehensive bus support and I/O capabilities

Scalable system with various software-based configuration options

Key Benefits

  • Scalable to any computation and I/O requirements
  • For laboratory as well as in-vehicle applications
  • High-performance processor technology for real-time calculation of large and complex simulation models
  • Comprehensive, precise, and fast I/O capabilities based on FPGA technology
  • IOCNET real-time backbone with very low jitter and high bandwidth for best-in-class closed-loop performance
  • Openess for several third-party simulation environments via Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) support

The SCALEXIO AutoBox brings the power of SCALEXIO into vehicles such as passenger cars, trucks, trains, and agricultural as well as construction machinery. Optimized for in-vehicle use, it is ideal for test drives when developing components such as electric powertrains and chassis control as well as functions for assisted, highly automated, and autonomous driving.


As a laboratory system, the SCALEXIO LabBox is ideally suited for a wide range of applications, such as RCP, function testing, test bench control, and as a base system for customized HIL setups. The compact chassis fits on an office desk and offers space for up to 18 SCALEXIO I/O boards, which you can easily exchange in order to adapt the real-time system to various applications.

SCALEXIO Rack System

For ECU tests, the SCALEXIO off-the shelf rack systems pro-vide sufficient space for MultiCompact I/O units, HighFlex boards, and SCALEXIO I/O boards. In contrast to a SCALEXIO laboratory system, the SCALEXIO off-the-shelf system for HIL testing comprises onboard fault insertion and current measurement with comprehensive software support.

SCALEXIO Customized System

The customized SCALEXIO simulator is tailored to customer-specific requirements. It provides maximum flexibility and can be expanded easily. Its typical fields of application include complex tests of networked ECUs as well as tests that include electronic loads and complete virtual vehicles.

Mechanical Test Benches

dSPACE offers highly dynamic test benches for testing complex mechatronic systems. To achieve a realistic behavior of the components to be tested, the test bench uses real parts, such as an electric motor or mechanical loads. For motor controllers and power electronics control units for non-rotating applications, dSPACE also offers turn-key projects using electronic load modules that provide high voltages and hundreds of kVA.

Power Hardware-in-the-Loop Systems

For motor controllers and power electronics control units for non-rotating applications like DC/DC converters and chargers, dSPACE also offers turn-key projects using electronic load modules from dSPACE that provide high voltages and hundreds of kVA.
