Failure Simulation Package

Application programming interfaces for accessing dSPACE Failure Insertion Units

Application Areas

The Failure Simulation Package is the successor of the Failure Simulation API Package and the ControlDesk Next Generation Failure Simulation Module.

The Failure Simulation Package gives you quick and easy access to ASAM XIL-compliant failure simulation units. It provides API access according to the ASAM XIL API Electrical Error Simulation Port (EESPort) and uniform access to all dSPACE failure simulation systems.

High-level libraries for convenient failure simulation access are available in .NET and can be used in Python, C#, and any other .NET-compliant programming language. 

If you use dSPACE ControlDesk, the Failure Simulation Package offers an ASAM XIL API EESPort-compliant graphical user interface component that is available when the Failure Simulation Package is installed.

Functionality Description
XIL API EESPort in .NET
  • Programming interface for accessing Failure Insertion Units
  • Uniform support of all dSPACE Failure Insertion Units
  • Automated configuration and switching of XIL API error configurations
  • NEW: Monitoring of error set switch demands via real-time variable allows cause-and-effect analysis in Failure Insertion Unit tests
  • NEW: ASAM XIL API EESPort-compliant software trigger support enables fast and precisely timed switching of error sets according to model variable states
AutomationDesk Client
  • Convenient and easy-to-use AutomationDesk library blocks for FIU automation
  • Uniform function blocks for any FIU that complies with the ASAM XIL standard
XIL API EESPort GUI in ControlDesk
  • Successor to ControlDesk’s Failure Simulation Module
  • Interactive graphical configuration of error configurations and error sets compliant to with ASAM AE XIL API standard (EESPort)
  • Requires ControlDesk
