Flagship Real-Time Digital Simulator

The OP5707XG offers an unequalled level of FPGA performance and optical connectivity to meet top-level requirements. An all-in-one solution, the OP5707XG combines the latest Intel® Xeon® processing cores with the power of a Xilinx® Virtex®-7 FPGA 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.

The New XG Series: Unmatched Performance

OPAL-RT is taking real-time simulation to another level with the new XG series. The new OPAL-RT operating system, OPAL-RT Linux 3, combined with Intel’s latest technologies and our unique toolboxes, allow engineers to benefit from an unmatched performance to simulate, test, integrate and validate innovative products and solutions.


Up to 2.5x faster. The new XG series system is capable of simulating larger and more complex power system, power electronics or microgrid models using fewer cores.


Benefit from maximum reliability and availability by using a server-grade motherboard and CPU.


The XG series allows users to simulate models with a reduce time step for better accuracy. The number of cores on a single simulator range from 4 to 16.

Powered by Intel

OPAL-RT’s XG series is based on Intel® processors. Benefit from Intel's decades of innovation that brings world-changing technologies to the market.

Features That Set the OP5707XG 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.


The OP5707XG 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.

Simulator Architecture

The OP5707XG 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 FPGA-based Power Electronics Toolbox.

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.
