dSPACE products have proven to be valuable tools in the field of medical engineering in many ways. They have also had established roles in the automotive and aerospace industries, as well as in mechatronic projects in other industrial and academic fields, for many years.

dSPACE tools support all stages of model-based development by integrating the MATLAB®/Simulink® environment:

Medical device design: Using dSPACE off-the-shelf hardware components ensures efficient development of algorithms and controller functions. Medical devices can be validated at an early stage without expensive and time-consuming in-house developments.

Automatic code generation: Target code is generated straight from your verified function models with no manual programming, ensuring consistency between model and code. Different simulation options support the verification process from the model level early in the development process to the final code.

Medical device tests: Single software functions or whole medical devices are tested automatically in a simulated environment and with various test scenarios.


dSPACE offers you a complete and integrated development environment for embedded control software. Our systems save you valuable development time and money, whether you use them throughout the entire process or just in individual project phases.

dSPACE systems support established development processes, particularly for electronic control unit (ECU) development, and also offer you ways to adapt your process chains to new challenging needs.

With constant innovations, key technologies and standards, and dedicated service and support, dSPACE helps you achieve long-term success. dSPACE systems let you perform demanding tasks such as system design, rapid control prototyping, automatic production code generation, hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing, virtual validation, and data management.

Did you know the ASM tool suite can also simulate exhaust aftertreatment systems?

Learn how to use the simulation models to simulate the influence of your closed loop control on the concentration of particulates and nitrogen oxide emitted by diesel engines.

The Task

Testing emission control systems for diesel engines.

The Challenge

To simulate aftertreatment systems such as diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalysts in combination with detailed combustion models.

The Solution

The ASM Diesel Engine In-Cylinder Model in combination with the ASM Diesel Exhaust System Model can simulate the effects of DPF and SCR on diesel particulate matter (DPM) and NOx concentration.
