High Performance Real-Time Simulation System

Procyon is a high-speed real-time simulation and control platform, customizable for a diverse range of applications The open and configurable system architecture supports multiple CPUs with multiple cores as well as HyperTransport, PCI Express and conventional PCI interconnections

Procyon uses A&D’s VirtualDSPConsole as a visual front end for system monitoring and parameter setting. MATLAB/ Simulink is used for modeling and control development. Blocksets for the function boards are provided and can be easily integrated in the solution.

A&D HiL solutions based on Procyon perform the modeling, control, I/O and communication tasks all from the same platform. The tightly coupled virtual and physical systems ensure high speed, low latency and consequently high performance.
