xPC Target Turnkey System for Education

Integrated solution for studying and teaching real-time simulation and testing using Simulink and xPC Target Turnkey

xPC Target Turnkey Turnkey System for Education consists of Simulink®, Simulink Real-Time™, and Speedgoat Education real-time target machine. This system is an integrated solution for studying and teaching design concepts in mechatronics, motion control, power electronics, and signal processing.

The Education real-time target machine is a ready-to-use, high-performance, real-time simulation and testing platform with built-in analog and digital I/O channels. It includes all required cables, terminal boards, and adapters to enable easy connectivity from the target machine I/O to your hardware under test. The industrial-grade design of the Education real-time target machine helps students understand solution technologies used in commercial industry. Optional I/O packages are available for motion control, CAN bus communication, and FPGA programming.

Students gain insight into system design by monitoring and tuning the performance of the Simulink Real-Time application from Simulink while the application runs in real time on the target machine.

Teach hardware-in-the-loop simulation and rapid control prototyping with a desktop/laboratory solution that's easy to set up and configure. Let students design models and visualize system behavior in Simulink. At the click of a button, generate code from the model and execute it in real time on the Education real-time target machine. With xPC Target Turnkey Turnkey System for Education, run your Simulink models in real time and connect to your hardware under test.
