An additional processing unit has been introduced by dSPACE for SCALEXIO Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) test systems. Equipped with an octa-core Intel Xeon Processor E5, the new processing unit is useful for the parallel execution of complex and computationally intensive simulation models.
This enables engineers to use high-fidelity, physically realistic models, increases model accuracy, and makes HIL simulations more realistic. With the octa-core variant, dSPACE extends the SCALEXIO Processing Unit product line with a second variant to address the variety of customers' application scenarios.
The new processing unit with eight cores is especially recommended for customers who often have to compute very large simulation models in parallel, such as those for vehicle dynamics simulation with detailed chassis and tire models. For use cases that require a strong computation performance of each individual core, dSPACE continues to provide the quad-core processing unit with an Intel Xeon Processor E3 and equally high performance.
Both variants, quad- and octa-core, of the SCALEXIO Processing Unit support multiprocessor applications where multiple processing units are interconnected. The two variants can also be used together in a multiprocessor network.
