Real-Time Windows Target Product Description

Run Simulink models in real time on Microsoft Windows PCs

Real-Time Windows Target™ provides a real-time engine for executing Simulink® models on a Microsoft® Windows® PC and blocks that connect to a range of I/O boards. It enables you to create and control a real-time system for rapid prototyping or hardware-in-the-loop simulation.

Real-Time Windows Target supports two Simulink simulation modes: normal mode, for simple real-time operation with access to I/O devices, and external mode, for higher real-time performance (with Simulink Coder™).

Key Features

  • Real-time closed-loop execution of Simulink models on Microsoft Windows

  • Signal visualization and parameter tuning while model is running

  • Execution control directly from Simulink, creating a PC-in-the-loop prototyping environment

  • Real-time performance exceeding 500 Hz in normal execution mode

  • Real-time performance exceeding 5 kHz in external execution mode (with Simulink Coder)

  • Blocks supporting more than 250 I/O modules (including analog I/O, digital I/O, counters, encoders, and frequency output) and communication protocols (including UDP, serial, and CAN)
