Openframe real-time target machine

Speedgoat's Openframe real-time target machine is the ideal choice for applications where the target machine doesn’t need its own enclosure, and where you provide your own enclosure/chassis/frame and cooling for mobile use or confined-spaces. From a mechanical, performance, and I/O connectivity perspective it is a technically more flexible and advanced solution than other open-frame target computers based on PC/104, EBX, EPIC, or similar form factors.

To connect with your hardware, a selection of over 200 different types of I/O modules are available.

Like all Speedgoat target machines, it is explicitly designed for use with Simulink Real-Time, to support the quickest path to test your Simulink designs on your hardware.

Speedgoat guarantees that each target machine is configured to meet your specific requirements, such as sample rate, I/O, and environmental. Paired with our long-term hardware warranty and maintenance services, you benefit from a truly turn-key solution.

The predecessor, Openframe real-time target machine v1 with Core 2 Duo 1.5 GHz CPU, will still be available for several years.
