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™, HDL Coder™ 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 and HDL Coder, 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 sizes (S, M or XL), 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.

For the Baseline-M, a modified convection rugged case with fans may be installed for solutions requiring additional heat dissipation.

Furthermore, an Openframe solution is available, which can be integrated into existing enclosures or systems. 


Baseline model
Width Depth Height Weight
Baseline-S 210 mm 190 mm  80 mm   2.6 kg
Baseline-M 210 mm  190 mm  130 mm   3.3 kg
Baseline Openframe 195 mm  177 mm  60 mm   1.1 kg


Range of I/O Connectivity

Every Baseline real-time target machine comes with on-board I/O connectivity including EtherCAT Master, real-time UDP, XCP over Ethernet, RS-232, and USB WebCam support. Furthermore, a large range of additional functionality can be installed in the form of I/O modules covering a wide range of I/O connectivity, I/O emulation for HIL, communication protocols and the latest Programmable FPGA I/O modules (Xilinx Artix®-7 and Kintex®-7). It is possible to install up to six I/O modules depending on the Baseline model.

Baseline model I/O module slots
Additional I/O slots using carrier
Baseline S 4x mPCIe -
Baseline M 4x mPCIe,
Baseline Openframe 4x mPCIe 3x XMC/PMC/CMC (with carrier ItemID 107150)

A selection of over 100 compatible I/O modules are available off the shelf covering most I/O and protocol requirements.

On-board I/O Connectivity

All Baseline real-time target machines include the following on-board protocol connectivity by default:

  • 1 x Ethernet port to connect with the Simulink development computer and for XCP calibration and monitoring via CANape and INCA (XCP Slave)
  • 2 x Ethernet ports supporting:
    • EtherCAT Master
    • Real-time UDP
    • TCP/IP (R2017a+)
    • XCP Master for Bypassing
  • 2 x RS-232 for asynchronous serial communication
  • 1 x USB 3.0 and 2 x USB 2.0 for UVC compliant USB WebCams

Supported 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 I/O modules with mini PCI Express (mPCIe) form factor are suitable for all Baseline real-time target machines:

In addition, the Baseline-M supports I/O modules with XMC, PMC and CMC form factors such as the latest Programmable FPGA I/O modules including Xilinx Kintex-7.
