dSPACE develops and distributes tools for the development of electronic control units (ECUs) and embedded systems worldwide. dSPACE was one of the companies that created this market segment 30 years ago, and continues to shape it to this day. Our systems enable you to reduce development times and costs when you design ECUs and controllers, which systematically increases your productivity. The reason is our optimal mix of standard solutions for rapid control prototyping, automatic production code generation and hardware-in-the-loop simulation. Moreover, we offer comprehensive services from on-site user training to customer-specific system engineering such as turnkey HIL test systems. Today, dSPACE has over 1,500 employees worldwide, at locations in Germany, the US, France, the UK, Japan, and China. In addition, numerous distributors provide customer support in other countries.

Gustav Klein was founded in Schongau in 1948. Its subsidiary company was established in Austria (in Inzing, near Innsbruck) in 1969. In both factories the company has about 250 employees. Gustav Klein develops and produces uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) for DC and AC load up to 2MW, as well as frequency converters, rectifiers, inverters and DC converters. In the last decade, GK has made a name for itself with its robust, programmable DC source/sink for testing and simulation of batteries and fuel cells. They have up to four channels, 1,000V up to 1,000A and a total power of 500kW per single unit.

Opal-RT Technologies was founded in 1997 with the mission of exploiting commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) PC and FPGA technology to develop high-performance real-time simulators for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing and rapid control prototyping. The company’s technological focus is on simulation of power systems and power electronics, with applications in the energy, aerospace and automotive sectors. Opal-RT serves over 800 customers in 40 countries through subsidiaries and distributors across the world.
