Founded in 1988, dSPACE is headquartered in Paderborn, Germany. dSPACE develops and distributes tools for the development of ECUs and mechatronic systems worldwide. Using dSPACE systems, manufacturers of controllers and electronic control units (ECUs) are able to dramatically reduce their development times and costs, and systematically increase their productivity. Whether the objective is an electronically controlled diesel injection or fuel cell vehicles, virtually all car manufacturers and many of their suppliers rely on dSPACE hardware and software in their current development projects. dSPACE tools are also used in aerospace, electrical drives technology, medical technology, industrial automation, and other fields.
