Features

Modular and Flexible Design

The OP5650XG’s modular and flexible design is fully customizable to meet the most specific I/O requirements. The chassis accommodate up to eight signal conditioning and analog/digital converters modules, providing 16 analog or 32 digital channels, to support up to 128 fast analog or up to 256 discrete signals. Communication devices from third-party I/O modules are easily connected through PCIexpress expansion slots.

Scalable Solution

The OP5650XG is a high-performance system capable of acting as a single-target system with up to 16-cores or can be linked with other systems to form a multiple-target PC cluster intended for more complex applications. The OP5650XG can also be interfaced with several powerful and compact FPGA and I/O expansion units, enabling implementation of even larger models requiring thousands of analog and digital I/O channels.

Simulator Architecture

The OP5650XG has two primary sections: an upper section containing analog and digital I/O signal modules, and a bottom section containing the multi-core processor computer and FPGA capable of running the entire OPAL-RT suite of real-time simulation software.

The OP5650XG can be configured with different Intel Xeon processors, and comes with OPAL-RT Linux 3.0 operating system, providing the best real-time performance on the market. The OP5650XG also provides the option of user-programmable I/O management, handled by a fast Xilinx® Artix®-7 FPGA.

Convenient Monitoring Functionality

The OP5650XG series of simulators and expansion units offers convenient monitoring functionality to enable users to scope simulation and I/O signals in real-time, via mini-BNC connectors at all times, without compromise.
