    Information Technology offers software and hardware for improvement of the engineering design, structuring and control systems, and industrial applications. The latest progress in IT makes integration of an overall design and manufacturing IT- concept feasible and commercially attractive. An IT-tool concept for modelling, simulation and design of mechatronic products and systems is proposed in this paper. It built on results from a Danish mechatronic research program on intelligent motion control as well as from the Esprit project SWING on IT-tools for rapid prototyping of fluid power components and systems. A mechatronic test facility for a hydraulic robot and a CNC XY-machine table was implemented. The controller use digital signal processors (DSPs). The DSP controller utilizes the dSPACE System suitable for real-time experimentation, evaluation and validation.
