Discover Simplicity with a Unified Experience.

The HIL604 is the ideal fit if you are looking for a seamless scalability, which can support up to 16 HIL units operating as one unified HIL system. Multi-unit HIL604 testbeds can simulate large systems with more than a hundred power electronics converters, displaying its unrivaled performance thus empowering you to stay ahead of your competition. 

Whether you are testing a single power electronics converter control or multiple converter system, the HIL604 provides an integrated environment that is as easy-to-use. Compiling a model, interacting with real-time simulation in runtime, automating tests, and is convenient for even first-time HIL users.

Our HIL604 device provides you with the ability to:

  • Unleash the 8-core processor HIL for real-time emulation of up to 8 converters.
  • Emulate your power stage with down to 50ns simulation time step (typically 500ns).
  • Interface your controller via 64 analog outputs, 32 analog inputs, 64 digital inputs, and 64 digital outputs.
  • Sample digital inputs with 7 ns sampling resolution
  • Quickly find problems and debug your controller with new Scope/Capture Function
  • Dive into your signals with 1 Megapoint capture record length for all 64 channels.
  • Build converter models using our extensive library of power electronics components and prepackaged examples.
  • Automate testing with Python scripts for the most comprehensive control software testing.
  • Connect to the host PC via Ethernet or USB2.0.

Improved test coverage

By simulating in the HIL testbed the operating points that cannot be tested in high-power operating conditions, we were able to improve test coverage significantly and reduce testing time over up to 60%.
