Opal-RT Technologies Introduces RT-LAB XSG

via PRNewswire

A single FPGA board connected to fast I/Os can be used for the simulationof intelligent sensors, actuators, and power electronic motor drives,including the IGBT converter and motor model. A single-FPGA board interfacedwith a single-processor, Pentium M or Athlon board, can implement complexprototype controllers having multi-level multi-rate control loops. Large PCclusters can be used to simulate very complex systems requiring thesimultaneous simulation of several interconnected systems such as thoseexpected in large aircraft, spacecraft and all-electric warships.

"This intelligent integration, of the most powerful processors andcommunication technologies with popular visual simulation tools, offers a newdegree of freedom to engineers and scientists facing the challenges ofintegrating complex systems," said Jean Belanger, President and CTO of Opal-RT.

Available now, RT-LAB XSG also supports Pentium Xeon, Pentium M and Athlonprocessors. AMD Opteron dual-core has been under test since June 2005 usingIWILL dual-processor (4 cores) boards and offers the maximum performance.
