Breaking Out of the dSPACE Black Box

In 2020, dSPACE will end of life their current HIL offering, PHS. This affects test engineers around the world, and presents users with a costly decision: migrate to dSPACE’s SCALEXIO solution or implement a solution from a different vendor. Either way, time, effort, and funding are necessary to make the required change.


We want this to be the last time you face this level of disruption. If you’re a dSPACE user, we realize that we may not talk often, so we’d like to take this opportunity to discuss how your current models and infrastructure can live on. We’d also like to tell you about our platform based approach and why it’s the trusted solution for automotive leaders around the world.


Open the black box and have confidence in what makes your test system tick


Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology ensures your tests rest on the most capable tools in the marketplace, placing the burden of part obsolescence and maintenance costs on the vendor, not you. We’ve adopted standards like ASAM XIL so you can continue to leverage your existing infrastructure.


You should be able to customize both hardware and software as you see fit


A platform based approach recognizes that you’re the expert and allows you to customize with the tools you prefer. Full ownership of your system means never having to pay to unlock features or for engineering services to tap into a closed system.

You know your system best, and you know the best way to test it

Test systems based on an open architecture can arrive built to your specifications and can be customized as test requirements change. Hardware designed for camera, radar, and mixed I/O sensors can be paired with your software preference from C to LabVIEW to Python with model integration from over 20 different environments.


We realize that you face the daunting task of changing your system and learning new tools. Make sure this is the last time you find yourself in this situation by partnering with a company that puts you in control.
