Speedgoat offers support for reading and emulating most encoders available on the market today. Support is implemented using FPGA code modules that are used by either Configurable or Programmable FPGA I/O modules.
Connect a Speedgoat system with commercial encoders using the Quadrature Decoder, EnDat Master, SSI Master or BiSS Master FPGA code modules. This is typically done for Rapid Control Protyping. Sniffer FPGA code modules are also available for monitoring.
For hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation, the encoders are typically emulated and connected to controllers, PLCs or drivers via a Speedgoat FPGA I/O module. Such emulated encoder signals are typically driven by complex machine, motor or engine simulations running in real-time on a Speedgoat real-time target machine. The Quadrature Encoder, BiSS Encoder, EnDat Encoder or SSI Slave FPGA code modules are typically used to emulate the real encoders for HIL applications.
