OP5707

SIMULATOR

Flagship Real-Time Digital Simulator

The OP5707 offers an unequalled level of FPGA performance and optical connectivity to meet top-level requirements. An all-in-one solution, the OP5707 combines the power of a Xilinx® Virtex®-7 FPGA with up to 32 of the latest Intel® Xeon® processing cores while supporting an extensive list of communication protocols, to meet the requirements for the most demanding Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) and Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) applications.

Features That Set the OP5707 Apart

Modular and Flexible Design

Connect your devices and systems without limitation. Onboard expansion slots accommodate up to eight analog and digital I/O modules, with signal conditioning to support a combination of up to 128 fast analog or 256 digital channels.

Expandable

The OP5707 supports up to 16 SFP multi-mode fiber optic modules and LVDS/fiber optic synchronization for high-speed communication and synchronization between devices and expansion units. Easily expand simulation and I/O capacity using other OPAL-RT FPGA and I/O expansion units, all through PCIexpress with minimal latency.

Simulator Architecture

The OP5707 uses a combination of Intel processors to enable real-time computing of very large models, as well as an FPGA to include ultra-fast loop time for fast-switching frequency real-time simulation. The Xilinx® Virtex®-7 FPGA’s timer resolution of 5ns supports model time-steps as low as 145ns, when using eHS.

All this exceptional computing power is available in a single rack-mounted chassis. Benefit from parallel processing to perform high-fidelity real-time electromagnetic transient (EMT) simulation of large and complex systems, as well as an FPGA for high-frequency power electronics applications.

Accurate Monitoring and HIL Interfacing

Convenient RJ45 and mini-BNC monitoring connectors are also available at the front of the simulator and standard DB37 connectors at the back for simple and efficient HIL interfacing.
