Speedgoat – Real-Time Simulation and Testing




Opti-Num Solutions is the sole distributor of Speedgoat systems in South Africa and can assist in sales, training and consulting with Simulink Real-Time and Speedgoat machines.

Speedgoat real-time target machines enable customers to perform Rapid Control Prototyping and Hardware-in-the-Loop testing along the complete Model-Based Design workflow. Rapid Control Prototyping provides early proof that control designs will work in the field by testing them in real-time on hardware. Hardware-in-the-Loop testing enables users to validate their control algorithms by simulating the real-time environment of the physical plant without having the physical plant.

Each Speedgoat machine is tailored to meet your exact requirements in terms of performance, IO and protocols. Each system is typically composed of:

  • Real time machine
  • I/O modules
  • Communication Protocols
  • Simulink Programmable FPGAs

Speedgoat products are optimised to guarantee the best workflow with Simulink Real-Time and other MathWorks products:

  • Speedgoat machines are compatible with the latest release of MATLAB
  • Each Speedgoat machine comes with a set of Simulink blocks to ensure easy compatibility between models and hardware
  • Speedgoat supports high frequency testing:
    • Up to 100 MHz for input and output for controls
    • Up to 5 GHz for software defined radio, radar, and other high-speed applications
    • Up to 10 GHz for vision applications using GigE Vision
  • Backed up by comprehensive warranty & maintenance options
