Unit Real-Time Target Machine
Small, lightweight and rugged, the Unit real-time target machine features a quad-core 1.6 GHz Intel® Atom® processor, a 2.5” SSD for data logging and two on-board GbE ports for host-target and other Ethernet-based communications.
The Unit real-time target machine is expressly designed to run and automate testing of real-time applications created from Simulink®. Sample rates above 20kHz are achievable with the IO397 Simulink-programmable FPGA I/O module option.
Featuring one I/O expansion slot, this target machine can be expanded with one of a range of Speedgoat I/O modules to support:
- Analog and Digital connectivity, and Serial (RS232/RS422/RS485) protocols
- Motion control and encoder feedback (PWM generation and capture, absolute and incremental encoders, EnDat 2.2, BiSS)
- SPI and I2C protocols, as well as the Dshot protocol for drones
- Automotive protocols including CAN, CAN FD, and SENT
- Industrial protocols including EtherCAT, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, ModbusTCP, and POWERLINK
- Simulink driver blocks for I/O connectivity
- Run real-time applications created from Simulink and Simulink Blocksets using Simulink Real-Time from MathWorks®
- Supports HDL Coder™ workflow with the IO397 FPGA I/O module
- Automate testing with Simulink Test™
- Build host GUIs with MATLAB App Designer and deploy
- Openframe option available
- Fully assembled and tested to meet your needs
- Comprehensive warranty and support services
MathWorks software products are optimised to guarantee the best real-time performance, workflow integration and usability with Simulink Real-Time™ and Speedgoat target machines.
Speedgoat builds and optimises its target machines for use with Simulink Real-Time, as well as guaranteeing that each target machine is configured to meet specific requirements, such as sample rate, I/O, and environmental.
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.
