direct-shift gearbox (German:
commonly abbreviated to DSG, is an electronically controlled
dual-clutch multiple-shaft manual gearbox, in a transaxle design –
without a conventional clutch pedal, and with full automatic,or
semi-manual control. The first actual dual-clutch transmissions derived
from Porsche in-house development for 962 racing cars in the 1980s.
In simple terms, a DSG is two separate
manual gearboxes (and clutches), contained within one housing, and
working as one unit. It was designed by BorgWarner, and was initially
licensed to the Volkswagen Group, with support by IAV GmbH.By using two
independent clutches,a DSG can achieve faster shift times,and eliminates
the torque converter of a conventional epicyclic automatic

the whole site to the VAG DSG Gearboxes and Mechatronic
units. Information will be added graduate or upon request. You will
also be able to find here DSG DQ250 Gearbox manuals, DSG Repair Manuals, DSG
Pressure Control Valves information and many other things related to
the DSG Mechatronic units and gearboxes.
