Capabilities and Features

dSPACE ACE Kits, exclusively for academic use, provide ready-to-use rapid control prototyping (RCP) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems for high-end real-time applications. You can program the kits using Simulink®, Simulink Coder™, and Model-Based Design. There are a wide range of kit options that provide capabilities and benefits such as cost savings, compactness and modularity, robustness for in-field or in-vehicle experiments, and powerful simulator systems for HIL applications. dSPACE also offers ClassRoom Kits − university licenses especially for laboratory workstations.

dSPACE ACE Kits for academia include:

  • A controller board or processor board
  • Adapter cables
  • Software (Real-Time Interface® and ControlDesk®) that gives you the power to:
    • Set up connections to your Simulink model and generate a real-time application
    • Tune parameters and monitor signals from MATLAB® or Simulink while the real-time application runs
    • Measure signals with plotters based on several time scales
    • Manage models and handle parameter sets
    • Create graphical instrument panels and automate experiments
