Performance real-time target machine

The Performance real-time target machine with Intel Core CPUs and optional FPGAs is Speedgoat's mainstay target computer for office and lab use and can be placed on a desk or installed in a rack. It is used in a broad range of application areas and industry sectors, such as vision and image processing, rapid control prototyping or plant simulation with hardware-in-the-loop (HIL).

A vast range of I/O connectivity and industrial protocols are supported, both on-board the target machine, as FPGA code modules and in the form of I/O modules. Up to 50 I/O modules can be installed by using additional expansion units. Custom rack systems can also be built.

This target machine is expressly designed for Simulink Real-Time in close partnership with MathWorks for a seamless workflow.

Staying Cutting-Edge for Complex Applications

The Performance real-time target machine continues to extend support for CPUs, FPGAs and I/O connectivity to adapt to your increasingly stringent requirements and complex applications:

  • Core: achieve the highest real-time performance with this liquid-cooled quad-core variant with Intel Core i7 CPU
  • PCIe+: ideal for multi-FPGA solutions requiring MHz closed-loop bandwidths and hundreds of I/O; this highly expandable variant has 12 PCIe slots
