The multiprocessor option for Real-Time Interface (RTI-MP) supports multiprocessor and multicore systems based on dSPACE‘s PHS hardware and helps to increase the performance of real-time simulations.
The multiprocessor option for Real-Time Interface (RTI-MP) supports multiprocessor and multicore systems based on dSPACE‘s PHS hardware and helps to increase the performance of real-time simulations. It assists in setting up multiprocessor networks, including the communication channels. Multicore applications are configured in the same way as multiprocessor applications.
RTI-MP lets you partition your system model and allocate the parts to the processors or cores by using simple drag & drop operations. Each processor submodel can be adjusted individually for optimum performance, including step sizes, integration algorithms and trigger conditions. After specification, you can implement your model on the processor boards with a single mouse click. Build procedures can also be automated with the help of scripts.
In practical development work, several processor boards are often connected to one networked dSPACE Simulator, and highly dynamic simulation models exchange simulation data via Gigalink modules. An easy way of specifying the topology of a whole network is therefore essential. RTI-MP offers special blocks to configure Gigalink communication within Simulink. The real-time application, including realtime synchronization between the simulators, can then be generated with a single click.
RTI-MP offers a maximum of convenience to accomplish tasks such as:
System dynamics can be designed in Simulink.
