WIXOM, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FEV, a globally leading engineering provider in the automotive industry, and dSPACE, one of the world's leading providers of simulation and validation solutions, have entered into a technology partnership. The two companies signed a cooperation agreement, that will enable the partners to provide customers in the automotive industry with customized power HIL test benches that are perfectly integrated into test centers.
Together, FEV and dSPACE offer worldwide planning and implementation of turn-key solutions for the validation of power electronics assemblies, including full electrical power tests in addition to comprehensive software validation. The range of services extends from facility planning, to the provision and integration of hardware and software to commissioning.
FEV Test Systems contributes its extensive know-how as a global development service provider in the automotive test bench sector and sophisticated automation and real-time solutions. With its MORPHEE automation system, FEV offers a proven test bench software that is specially adapted to the customer's needs. In its latest version, MORPHEE provides a unique real-time measurement performance with a sampling capacity of five million individual values per second. This is especially crucial for test benches for e-mobility applications to detect and verify electrical and mechanical phenomena, such as the charging/discharging behavior of a battery. dSPACE completes the offering with decades of Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) experience and established power HIL test systems as ready-to-use solutions for testing and validating power electronics assemblies at full power.
“Offering highly flexible system solutions at competitive cost while demonstrating superior performance is key to success in this business,” said Dean Tomazic, President FEV North America.
“Our global customers will benefit from technologically leading Power Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) technology that is seamlessly integrated into the dSPACE HIL world with its extensive real-time models, enabling intuitive test automation,” added Peter Waeltermann, CEO dSPACE Inc.
