Based on SCALE-RT® we are able to offer you efficient, flexible and especially cost-effective HiL systems for your simulation projects.

SCALE-RT® is a scalable open source based product that uses the established, future-proof Linux real-time kernel with Xenomai extension. SCALE-RT® supports multi-core processor architectures and various I/O hardware.

The possibility of connecting to MATLAB®/Simulink® (incl. Stateflow®) makes SCALE-RT® a comprehensive software package for professional product development. SCALE-RT® is highly-flexible, economical and scalable.

Areas of application

Cross Development on Windows

The SCALE-RT® cross-development suite is an intuitive environment that enables model-based software development of applications built for the SCALE-RT® Linux real-time target.

Run in Linux real-time

SCALE-RT® Linux is based on the Debian Linux distribution and includes the Xenomai real-time extension. In addition to the development of models in the SCALE-RT® cross-development environment, it also allows their execution in real time.
