Providing Innovative Engineering Solutions
Our team of hardware and software engineers specializes in developing engineering solutions such as automation and measurement systems for Microsoft Windows and real-time embedded targets for industrial and control applications. Our expertise spans a wide range of real-time operating systems, DSP, FPGA, and ARM processors. Plus, all of our engineers are accredited LabVIEW Certified Developers.
We have successfully deployed systems all over the world and across a multitude of industries, such as:
- Autonomous control of underwater vehicle fuel cells
- Monitoring system for military diesel generators
- Valve fatigue testing in extremely cold environments
- Validation tester for epilepsy sensor electrodes
Creating Next-Generation Embedded Products
To meet the high demand for tiny, low power, and easy-to-program embedded targets, we have created the 35 x 35 mm ANTS platform of stackable single-board computers. Based on ARM processor technology and powered by LabVIEW graphical programming, this flexible, off-the-shelf product is well-suited for a wide range of industrial and embedded applications.
We are also one of few companies that designs custom C Series modules and software drivers for the CompactRIO platform from National Instruments. Our product line includes reconfigurable communication modules for protocols such as UDP multicast and NTP.
