dSPACE FlexRay Configuration Package

The dSPACE FlexRay Configuration Package is used to integrate dSPACE hardware as simulation nodes or monitoring nodes in a FlexRay network. Nodes are configured with the dSPACE FlexRay Configuration Tool according to a communication matrix containing scheduling information for signals and frames transmitted via the FlexRay bus. The communication information is linked to a MATLAB®/ Simulink® model by the RTI FlexRay Configuration Blockset. The resulting FlexRay application can be executed on a dSPACE system. The package is an extensive solution for using FlexRay in dSPACE’s MicroAutoBox or modular systems.

In this training course, you will learn how to configure a dSPACE system as a simulation node in a FlexRay network and create application-specific Simulink models. Additional special features such as failure simulation and implementing CRC algorithms are also covered.
