Highest performance and scalable test system, ideal for desktop and rack installation

The Performance real-time target machine provides large I/O expansion flexibility and powerful real-time performance, making this test system ideal for most office and lab-based testing requirements of control designs and embedded controllers.

Examples of frequently leveraged testing workflows include rapid control prototyping including bypassing, hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation of digital twins with or without power emulation, and predictive maintenance. 

Equipped with a high clock rate multi-core CPU and one or multiple Simulink programmable FPGAs, this testing system enables you to achieve even the most demanding sample rates, and can be scaled to support thousands of I/O channels. 

As all Speedgoat testing systems, the Performance real-time target machine provides unrivaled workflow integration with MATLAB & Simulink. 

Capabilities  

Accelerate the design and testing of control designs and embedded controllers from MATLAB & Simulink

Speedgoat test systems provide unrivaled MATLAB & Simulink workflow integration through Simulink Real-Time™. Rapidly prototype and test control designs. Test and automate testing of embedded controllers in real-time with your hardware under test. 

Achieve most demanding sample rates and compute highly complex applications

Based on your application's closed-loop sample rate requirement designed with Simulink, this target machine is configured with the best-suited high-performance multi-core CPU and optional Simulink programmable FPGAs.

Vast range of supported I/O and large I/O expansion flexibility

Based on your required set of I/O functionality, each target machine is pre-configured with the best set of I/O modules, based on your choice from selecting 150+ I/O modules. 

I/O modules are pre-installed at the time the target machine is purchased. Install additional I/O modules on your own at any time. 

In addition to the default set of I/O slots, each target machine can also be expanded with additional I/O expansion chassis, enabling the installation of thousands of I/O channels.

Connect the target machine with your hardware, right from Simulink

Delivery of each I/O module includes a Simulink I/O Blockset, enabling you to access and configure I/O functionality rapidly right from Simulink. Delivery always contains a suitable cable and a terminal board.    

Flexible installation

The low noise 19" 4U Performance real-time target machine can be installed on your desk, in a lab, or in a rack.

Maintained for the years to come

Speedgoat & MathWorks continuously improve the real-time testing experience for Speedgoat testing systems, accessible through the latest Speedgoat I/O Blockset and Simulink Real-Time software releases and compatible with the latest MATLAB release. In addition, full service and maintenance extension packages also, including technical support, are available.

A default warranty on the hardware is provided for two years and can be extended to five years. Even after the warranty period, Speedgoat continues to repair systems if anything should break. Drop-in replacement options for minimum downtimes are also available.
