Paul Cox, MathWorks
In this webinar, we show how you can go beyond software-only simulation to quickly and efficiently test your Simulink control designs in real time while connecting to hardware. We’ll look closely at a brushless motor control example and demonstrate, using an xPC Target Turnkey solution, how a controls or test engineer can easily configure and run the controller algorithm on a real-time target machine and communicate through high-speed I/O interfaces to power electronics, sensors, and the motor.
Highlights of the webinar include:
What is xPC Target Turnkey?
xPC Target Turnkey is a complete real-time testing solution that combines Simulink and xPC Target with high-performance real-time target machines and I/O modules. Real-time target machines and I/O modules are available to meet a wide range of computational, form factor, connectivity, and environmental requirements.
