Octa-core number cruncher makes HiL simulations more realistic

February 02, 2017 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Embedded systems development tool vendor dSpace GmbH has added a new processing unit to its Scalexio real-time hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) test systems. Equipped with an eight-core Intel Xeon Processor E5, the new processing unit is ideal 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, the company extends the Scalexio product line with a second variant to address the variety of customers’ application scenarios. The new product is especially recommended for customers who frequently need 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 support multiprocessor applications where multiple processing units are interconnected. The two variants can also be used together in a multiprocessor network.
