ARINC 825 Communication Protocol Support

ARINC 825 Communication Protocol Support

Speedgoat support for ARINC 825 protocol enables CAN communication without having to design your own CAN structure. Leverage the ARINC 825 Simulink® driver blocks with the IO602 module for avionic applications.

DNP3 Protocol Support

DNP3 Protocol Support

Speedgoat now offers DNP3 master and outstation support using the onboard Ethernet interfaces of the target machines or a range of plug-in Ethernet I/O modules. DNP3 enables component interoperability, supervisory control, data acquisition, and monitoring in electric power systems and is commonly used in water supply and the oil and gas industry. 

New Bundles for HDL I/O Functionality

New Bundles for HDL I/O Functionality

With R2021a, Speedgoat has introduced two bundles for HDL I/O functionality, designed for communication and motion control in conjunction with HDL Coder™.

The Communication HDL I/O Blockset includes protocols such as SPI, I2C, SENT, and Dshot. The Motion Control HDL I/O Blockset enables PWM, and en-/decoder measurement and simulation, including Quadrature, SSI, BiSS, EnDAT, and Cam/Crank. 

R2020b Simulink Real-Time Major Update

R2020b Simulink Real-Time Major Update

The Simulink Real-Time R2020b release is a significant update with several feature enhancements and a new cost-effective MATLAB license option for HIL testing workflows. Find out more about the latest capabilities with R2020b.

CANopen: Further Extension of the Communication Protocol Range

CANopen: Further Extension of the Communication Protocol Range

The new IO644 CANopen Slave I/O Module is ideal for rapid control prototyping in industrial automation plants such as motor controllers, sensors, I/O stations, and robots. Furthermore, the IO644 can be used to perform Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) simulation for PLC testing, virtual commissioning, and factory acceptance tests.

FlexRay: Ensuring Deterministic and High Data Rate Transmissions

FlexRay: Ensuring Deterministic and High Data Rate Transmissions

The new IO623 FlexRay I/O module with up to four physical FlexRay controllers (A/B channel) ensures deterministic transmission with high data rates up to 10 Mbit/s per channel and high fault tolerance. 

The FIBEX configuration can be quickly loaded into a dedicated software tool that exports the configuration. The new Speedgoat I/O Blockset for FlexRay provides full access to the Simulink Real-Time, Simulink, and MATLAB ecosystem. 

New Unit Real-Time Target Machine: Small but Powerful

New Unit Real-Time Target Machine: Small but Powerful

Looking for a small-scale controller or plant simulator, suitable for prototyping, testing and embedded integration, and which offers unparalleled Simulink® workflow integration?

The Unit real-time target machine features a quad core CPU, optional FPGA integration, and a host of Simulink-supported I/O options including: analog and digital I/O; PWM and encoder support; automotive protocols including CAN, CAN FD and SENT; industrial protocols like EtherCAT and PROFINET; SPI, I2C and Dshot protocols; serial I/O; and Ethernet including TCP/IP, real-time UDP and XCP.

CAN and CAN FD Support for Unit Real-Time Target Machine

CAN and CAN FD Support for Unit Real-Time Target Machine

The new IO691 I/O module further enriches the broad I/O support for the Unit and Baseline real-time target machines with two isolated CAN and CAN FD ports. The module also supports SAE J1939 and XCP for calibration and bypassing over CAN. Delivery includes Simulink CAN communication configuration blocks.

New MVB Communication Support for Train and Railway

New MVB Communication Support for Train and Railway

Next generation control concepts for rolling stock are increasingly leveraging model-based designs. The new IO619 I/O module with simultaneous access for up to 32 nodes ideally supports this transition through its seamless Simulink workflow integration.
