System Requirements

Guidelines for the hardware and/or software environment necessary to run Typhoon HIL Control Center, for both PC and Test Server/Virtual Machine-based setups.

Typhoon HIL Control Center - System requirements

The following requirements are for running an instance of Typhoon HIL Control Center software on a desktop PC or laptop.

Operating System

64-bit version of one of the following:

  • Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 10
  • GNU/Linux distributions

    • Debian 10
    • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

    GNOME desktop environment is required if a graphical desktop environment of Typhoon HIL Control Center will be used.

CPU

64-bit processor with at least four (4) CPU cores.

Memory (RAM)

At least 8 GB of memory is required for basic software use, although 16 GB or more is recommended.

Storage

Every clean installation of Typhoon HIL Control Center will require up to 10 GB of storage space. Additional space will be required depending on your specific workload (the number and size of models you create; generated files from compiling, automated tests, etc.; any other required resources).

Solid-state (SSD) storage is recommended.

Typhoon HIL Control Center - System requirements for Test Server/Virtual machine based setups

The following system requirements are for server computers which host a number of virtual machines/Docker images each running one instance of Typhoon HIL Control Center, primarily used for test execution.

CPU

64-bit processor with at least four (4) CPU cores plus two additional CPU cores for each additional VM and/or Docker image hosting one Typhoon HIL Control Center instance.

Memory (RAM)

At least 4 GB of memory for general tasks, plus 16 GB of memory for every additional VM and/or Docker image hosting one Typhoon HIL Control Center instance.

Storage

Every clean installation of Typhoon HIL Control Center will require up to 10 GB of storage space. Additional space will be required depending on your specific workload (the number and size of models you create; generated files from compiling, automated tests, etc.; any other required resources).

Enterprise (server and data center) class solid-state (SSD) storage is recommended.
