Built to your needs, made for Simulink

MathWorks software products are optimized to guarantee the best real-time performance, workflow integration and usability with Simulink Real-Time™ and Speedgoat target machines. The latest Simulink and Speedgoat technologies are first supported with this platform.

Speedgoat on the other hand doesn't only build and optimize its target machines for use with Simulink Real-Time, but also guarantees that each target machine is configured to meet your specific requirements, such as sample rate, I/O, and environmental.

Furthermore, every target machine comes with Simulink driver blocks or FPGA reference designs to configure all installed I/O and protocols functionality. Simulink test models are also provided.

Paired with long-term warranty, maintenance, training, and consulting services from MathWorks and Speedgoat, you benefit from a truly turn-key solution for your next generation projects.

Choice of form factors

With various form factors and configurations, this high-performance and cost-effective real-time target machine is designed for all working environments: from the office, to the factory floor to in-vehicle flight control.

Rugged development platform

Its rugged case comes in three form factors, all designed to withstand high levels of shock and vibration - typical when used in off-highway vehicles, helicopters, or planes. The mainboard, internal power supply, and I/O module carriers form a single rigid unit, isolated from the case to prevent unwanted strains which could occur in environments with varying temperatures.

Fanless by default, optional fans

The Baseline real-time target machine has no mechanically moving parts (e.g. CPU fans, hard disk). The advanced heat dissipation concept is based entirely on thermal conduction. By using solid aluminum heat sinks and optimized internal heat distribution, temperature ranges of -20°C to 60°C (optionally -45°C up to +75°C) can be supported. The enclosure is EMI shielded with all connectors being ESD protected. IP67 is optionally available.

Note that a modified convection rugged case with fans may be installed for solutions with several large FPGAs (only Baseline-M and Baseline-XL).

Baseline-XL 190 mm (7.48 in) 190 mm (7.48 in) 250 mm (9.84 in)  

DIN-rail mounting plate

The optional DIN-rail mounting plate provides versatile steel clips to mount the Baseline real-time target machine on DIN-rails.

Range of I/O Connectivity

The Baseline real-time target machine not only provides rich on-board I/O including EtherCAT Master, real-time UDP, PTP (1588), XCP over Ethernet, RS232, and USB WebCam support, but allows for flexible I/O expansion.

Every Baseline real-time target machine comes with on-board I/O, and a large range of additional functionality can be installed in the form of I/O modules. It is possible to install four mPCIe I/O Modules and up to three PMC/XMC/CMC I/O Modules.

A selection of over 200 I/O modules area available off the shelf covering most I/O and protocol requirements.

On-board I/O Connectivity

The following I/O connectivity is available as standard on the Baseline real-time target machine:

  • 2 x Ethernet port supporting:
    • EtherCAT Master
    • Real-time UDP
    • XCP over UDP
    • Raw Ethernet
    • XCP Slave for Calibration and Monitoring with CANape and INCA
    • XCP Master for Bypassing
  • 1 x Ethernet port for XCP Slave and TCP/IP link with Simulink development computer
  • 2 x RS232 for asynchronous serial communication
  • 1 x USB 3.0 for UVC compliant USB WebCams
  • 2 x USB 2.0

Compatible I/O Modules

Speedgoat I/O modules offer an easy, flexible way of adding a large variety of I/O connectivity to your real-time target machine. There is a vast selection of compatible FPGAs, I/O connectivity and industrial protocols with the Baseline real-time target machine. For example, the following mPCIe I/O modules are suitable for all Baseline real-time target machines:


Each type of Baseline target machine can support the following form factors:


Target machine Native form factor Required carrier
Baseline S mPCIe -
Baseline M mPCIe, XMC/PMC/CMC -
Baseline XL mPCIe, XMC/PMC/CMC -
Openframe mPCIe XMC/PMC/CMC (with carrier ItemID 107150)
