Concurrent Announces Availability of its SIMulation Workbench Linux-based, Real-Time Modeling Tools
SIMulation Workbench Provides Full GUI Control of Complex Simulations Developed in MathWorks’ MATLAB/Simulink
DULUTH, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Concurrent Computer Corporation (NASDAQ:CCUR), a leading provider of time-critical Linux® operating systems and integrated software and computer solutions for mission-critical applications, today announced that its SIMulation Workbench™ modeling environment is now generally available on its popular iHawk real-time Linux platforms. SIMulation Workbench provides a complete framework to develop and execute real-time hardware-in-the-loop and man-in-the-loop simulations.
“The adoption of more advanced system prototyping and simulation solutions represents a strategy for developing software more effectively and validating software/hardware interaction earlier in the design process.“”
SIMulation Workbench is the industry’s next-generation COTS modeling tool designed to meet the most demanding of simulation needs. Available from Concurrent as a fully-integrated test platform, SIMulation Workbench solutions improve test quality and reduces development costs. Features and benefits include:
-- A Real-Time Database for fast, convenient memory-resident access to all model parameters and signals.
-- Flexible modeling supporting The MathWorks’ MATLAB/Simulink models.
-- Preserve existing and new hand-written Fortran, C/C++ or Ada code based models.
-- Extensive I/O support controlling thousands of I/O points with support for a large selection of COTS I/O boards.
-- Powerful GUIs to conveniently configure, start, stop, record and play back simulation runs.
-- Scripting language to control and/or change the simulation environment in real-time.
-- Concurrent’s RedHawk Linux real-time operating system featuring guaranteed performance determinism.
-- Real-time debugging using Concurrent NightStar™ development and analysis tools
“SIMulation Workbench was designed from the ground up based on customer and simulation market requirements,” said Ken Jackson, V.P. of Special Systems, Concurrent. “The industry has a strong need for powerful real-time simulation and testing tools that use COTS and real-time Linux technologies. We are excited about the positive reaction from our customers.”
“VDC expects an increased use of virtual prototyping methodologies,” said Matt Volckmann, Senior Analyst/Program Manager, Venture Development Corporation. “The adoption of more advanced system prototyping and simulation solutions represents a strategy for developing software more effectively and validating software/hardware interaction earlier in the design process.“
Concurrent iHawk real-time PCI-based systems are powered by up to eight Intel Xeon® or AMD Opteron® sockets and contain up to 64 GB of memory in rack mount and tower enclosures. Configurable with a wide range of commercially available components, the iHawk is the ideal platform for today's simulation, data acquisition, process control and other time-critical applications.
