A&D Technology Runs Distributed GT-POWER Models on New Multi-Core, Real-Time Procyon Platform.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- A&D Technology and Gamma Technologies announced today that they have successfully run an enhanced real-time GT-POWER model on A&D's new Procyon platform. The Procyon platform is the world's most advanced real-time system, capable of utilizing up to 32 CPU cores in one 'box.' Taking advantage of Hypertransport technology and AMD's Opteron microprocessors, Procyon has an I/O latency of less than 800 nanoseconds, making it the fastest Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) and control system available on the market. Gamma Technologies' GT-POWER modeling tool is the world's best selling engine and powertrain simulation software package, and is used by most OEMs for engine design as well as ECU development as part of HiL systems. Because fully detailed GT-POWER models are too complex and computationally intensive for real-time application, simplified mean-value models are typically run on HiL systems for ECU verification and validation activities. With the Procyon multi-core architecture, A&D and Gamma Technologies have moved a step closer to running full GT-POWER models by distributing cylinder pressure calculations separate CPU cores for parallel processing and simulation. The result is real-time crank angle-based cylinder pressure data--instead of cycle-based mean-value cylinder pressures--which can aid in the development of closed-loop combustion control systems. Procyon will be available for sale in early 2009. For more information, please contact or
