Engine Control Modules support rapid prototyping.

Press Release Summary:



Offering plug-and-play flexibility, C Series Modules provide engine researchers with engine-specific I/O for interfacing directly with internal combustion engine subsystems and actuators. Using modules, which are programmed with LabVIEW FPGA, engineers can rapidly prototype engine control algorithms without creating custom hardware or requesting lengthy code changes. LabVIEW FPGA drivers enable engineers to adjust injection timing and software parameters using open, intuitive programming language.

National Instruments Releases C Series Engine Control Modules for Rapid Prototyping



News Highlights

- Drivven, a National Instruments company, released six new C Series modules that give power train control system developers the ability to rapidly prototype their engine sensor and actuator interfaces using the NI LabVIEW FPGA Module.

- C Series modular hardware offers plug-and-play I/O flexibility to change engine interfaces in seconds.

- LabVIEW system design software gives researchers tremendous flexibility with engine parameters such as spark and fuel injection timing.

STUTTGART, Germany, -- Automotive Testing Expo -- National Instruments (Nasdaq: NATI) today released six Drivven C Series engine control modules, which provide engine researchers with rugged, modular engine-specific I/O for interfacing directly with internal combustion engine subsystems and actuators. Using these modules, which are programmed with LabVIEW FPGA, engineers can rapidly prototype engine control algorithms without having to create custom hardware or request lengthy code changes.

Quote

"The Direct Injector Module from Drivven enabled us to get the piezoelectric injector working well in a very short time," said Jason King, chief engineer of gasoline engines at Ricardo. "We also created novel injection strategies because Drivven programmed the control aspects easily and quickly. The cost versus capability of Drivven products are superior to anything else on the market."

Drivven C Series Module Features

-- LabVIEW FPGA drivers: Engineers can easily adjust injection timing and software parameters using an open, intuitive programming language.

-- Modular I/O: Engineers can rapidly prototype all the I/O necessary for a production engine controller.
