RT-LAB products allow a user to automatically separate, compile, and
integrate Simulink block diagram models into a distributed real-time system. RT-LAB simulates in real-time highly complex control systems from a simple Simulink block diagram. The user simply divides the Simulink block diagram into sub-systems which will later be assigned to specific real-time nodes (running QNX RTOS) or to the Windows NT station for the user interface. All nodes work in parallel for maximum speed and efficiency. RT-LAB separates and compiles the C code initially generated by Real-time Workshop and then maps the object codes on the respective CPUs. It challenges the real-time market, targeting the two main applications: rapid control prototyping and hardware-in-the-loop simulation.
