Real-Time Simulation and Testing

Award winning innovation with unmatched performance

Integrated Model-Based Engineering

Integrated Model-Based Engineering (MBE) and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) testing are seen as complementary approaches that improve the efficiency and effectiveness of system design, development, validation, and testing. MBE aids in creating accurate models representing system behavior, while HIL testing provides a means to validate those models using real hardware components in a controlled simulation environment. 

Built for unparalleled emulation speed, fidelity, and stability, Typhoon HIL’s Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) toolchain has a state-of-the-art processor design with ultra-low latency. Its unprecedented execution rates bring Controller Hardware-in-the-Loop (C-HIL) testing to new light. Complete software design and testing can be done in Typhoon HIL, from Model-in-the-Loop (MIL) to Software-in-the-Loop (SIL) and all the way to C-HIL. 

Fully Embedded FPGA and CPU Compiler

Processor Design

Powering all Typhoon HIL simulators since 2009, the Typhoon HIL Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) solver is a proven design trusted by both industry and academia. It has been continuously developed driven by extensive user feedback which is implemented through quarterly software releases.  

Our FPGA solver is the key piece of technology that enabled high-fidelity real-time emulation of power electronics and small-scale power system circuits. It provides a solid basis for numerous applications ranging from model-based control development that empowers model-based engineering processes for test driven development and converter C-HIL testing, all the way to pre-commissioning and virtual system integration of modern, power electronics enabled, power systems.

Our technology empowers you to: 

  • Compile high-fidelity real-time models without domain-specific expertise and any 3rd party tools or toolchains 
  • Take your code to a platform of your choice with ANSI C with no low-level programming expertise required 
  • Validate embedded software (e.g., drives software, automotive ECUs software, wind turbine software, etc.) using simulation to shorten test time 
  • Emulate high-switching frequency devices with a 0.2 µs timestep  
  • Converts models into processor-readable model description with a single click of the button 
  • Take full advantage of the powerful system-on-chip powered 
Versatility, Fidelity, and Agility

Rapid Control Prototyping

To provide added flexibility and adaptability that works best for your development process, our products offer you the capability to integrate models and systems from multiple developers. Take advantage of our powerful interoperability tools whether it be hardware interfaces which connect directly to external controllers or modeling software – from TI, dSPACE, JMAG-RT, and more or software C-Code and DLL imports and exports let you use Matlab models and Simulink control code directly in your Typhoon model, or vice versa.  

Explore our unparalleled products which fuel your teams by reducing development timelines, improving collaboration, and facilitating better decision-making working with a unified representation of the system.

CarMaker Co-Simulation | Typhoon HIL Demo

This demo presents an approach for integrating high-fidelity EV powertrain models with detailed vehicle dynamics in automotive driving simulations, realized with a co-simulation between Typhoon HIL and IPG Automotive’s CarMaker. With this approach, Typhoon HIL can emulate electric converters, machines, and cell-level BMS systems with high fidelity in real time.
