Capabilities and Features

Run your real-time Simulink application to your hardware under test with real-time target machines from Speedgoat.

Use Speedgoat to select the right set of I/O modules for your specific requirements. Achieve the smallest possible I/O latencies and quickly access I/O through the driver blocks available from Simulink Real-Time.

To connect to your hardware, Speedgoat I/O modules support a wide range of I/O and communications protocols.
