Get a custom solution

In mission-critical systems and projects, the need for hard real-time performance is paramount. Whether in aerospace, defense, automotive, or other industries, the seamless synchronization of hardware and software is crucial for ensuring the reliability and precision of operations. Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) and Software-in-the-Loop (XiL) simulations serve as indispensable tools in this endeavor, allowing engineers to validate and refine complex systems under real-time conditions. The demand for hard real-time performance ensures that these simulations accurately mirror the responsiveness and timing requirements of actual mission-critical environments. From avionics to autonomous vehicles, the synergy of HiL and XiL with hard real-time performance not only enhances system integrity but also accelerates the development and deployment of cutting-edge technologies, reinforcing the resilience and effectiveness of critical systems across diverse domains.
