Wangen, Germany - Just released by Scale-RT is a Linux-based real-time simulation environment for host-target prototyping in applications running on a cost-efficient PC-compatible hardware.
It is a scalable product based on open-source software, which includes the reliable Linux kernel and the real-time Xenomai extension. Xenomai is the base of a Linux kernel which can support hard real-time applications.
Included as part of the SCALE-RT simulator is the numerical computation package Scilab/Scicos simulator, a highly integrated professional modeling environment.
It supports multi-core processor architectures and a wide variety of I/O hardware. In addition it integrates with other modeling tools such as Matlab, Simulink Stateflow', SimulationX' and Dymola.
SCALE-RT is a professional software package offering a comprehensive environment for the development of hardware-in-the-loop simulation systems, rapid control prototyping applications and complex test systems.
A free trial version is available at www.scale-rt.com/download. This trial version has very few restrictions and will not expire. It even comes with free technical support until the 31st of December, 2008.
Three variations of the product are available: classic, concert and opus. To learn more, go to www.scale-rt.com
