Applications and Programming languages
Applications using UEIPAC
Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interconnected physical devices that can share data with each other as well as cloud services for archiving and analysis. UEI’s Programmable Automation Controllers (UEIPAC) come pre-installed with Eclipse Mosquito (MQTT) which implements the machine-to-machine protocol. UEI also supports Helix Device Cloud, Amazon AWS IoT and Microsoft Azure.
With our UEISIM series, easily run Simulink models on real I/O. Build a standard Simulink application and then generate and compile code using MathWorks embedded coder. You can then run models stand-alone or under supervisory control of the host PC. UEISIM creates a powerful solution for developing and turning real time (and non-real-time) applications including model verification, rapid prototyping and HIL testing.
Military Application: UEI & US Navy
News: United Electronic Industries and the US Navy In order to meet the needs of its LCAC fleet, the US Navy selected UEI to provide its flexible and rugged DNR-MIL series I/O control chassis and VxWorks BSP to be the new Command, Control, Computers, Communication, and Navigation (C4N) SBC4 Control, Alarm, and Monitoring System (CAMS). Working with UEI gave the Navy a smaller, easier to maintain, and more reliable controller Read about the complete solution
Boards Supported - UEI has over 90 UEIPAC interchangeable I/O boards. One chassis can contain up to 12 different boards. We support Serial RS-232/422/485, CAN Bus, Speed/Encoder inputs and PWM.
The new Zynq UltraScale+ based CPU offers up to a 10x increase in CPU performance over previous CPUs. When utilizing the built-in Xilinx FPGA, an increase in real-time performance up to 100x is possible.
The new CPU joins the currently supported Freescale MPC5200/8347 and SoloX based CPUs in the UEIPAC family and all are covered by UEI’s powerful 10-year availability guarantee. The initial release supports the Linux operating systems while VxWorks and PIKE OS support is expected in the future.
Benefits and features include:
3 GigE Ethernet ports, supports IEEE-1588.
Quad-core ARM cortex - A53, 64-bit processor combined with a user programmable Xilinx FPGA.
4 GByte, 64-bit DDR, 8 GByte FLASH
Dedicated ARM Mali GPU with the full HD video support.
Unmanned Aerial Systems require robust DAQ at every step of their development from design verification and validation to in-flight operations. UEI (UEIPAC Cubes) hardware is ideally suited for this role. In this video we show how one company uses UEI for their advanced UAS. #avionics #inflight #drone
The UEIPAC is a stand-alone data acquisition controller capable of being embedded almost anywhere. This new video highlights the primary features which make these devices an ideal solution for any of your measurement and control applications. #standalone #flexible #synchronization #sync #IO #eclipse #gnu
The UEIPAC offers an unprecedented combination of flexibility, high performance, low cost and small size. The unit is an ideal solution in a wide variety of measurement and control applications including: Temperature control, Remote/unmanned vehicle control, Hardware in-the-loop (HIL) and more. #software #linux #demo #flexible #IO
While UEI systems are engineered for data acquisition, simulation and control, our hardware falls into two basic categories – PowerDNA and UEIPAC. This video illustrates the differences between each. #flexible #IO #embedded #standalone
With just a few simple steps, you can begin sharing data between UEI data acquisition and control hardware and your IoT (Internet of Things) system. This video shows you how to get started. #ueipac #daq #mqtt #mosquitto #linux #IO #code #software
Hydroacoustics Inc. (HAI) designs specialized products for a variety of aquatic applications, including an innovative oil and gas subsea chemical injection system, called the SCIU (Subsea Chemical Injection Unit). Subsea chemical injection techniques are used to mitigate the diminishing effects of buildup in piping and pumping systems used in subsea oil production operations. Learn how UEI equipped HAI's SCIU with rugged data acquisition and control hardware that could guarantee accurate results in an extreme environment here.
When Blue Origin, a space exploration company founded and privately funded by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, needed to consolidate custom and COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) data acquisition and control hardware into one platform they looked to UEI for their solution. UEI's standardized hardware solutions helped Blue Origin save time, minimize maintenance, accelerate development, and compete in the space race. Learn more here.
The US Navy’s LCAC (Landing Craft Air Cushion) fleet is a vital part of Navy operations and is responsible for transporting weapons systems, equipment, cargo and personnel of the Marine Air/Ground Task Force both from ship to shore and across the beach. The LCAC is designed to make it uniquely suited for this mission. However, the fleet is over three decades old and faces obsolescence challenges. To solve these challenges, the Navy introduced the LCAC SLEP (Service Life Extension Program), which would overhaul the LCAC’s existing legacy systems with newer equipment. To do so, the Navy needed rugged, reliable, and flexible data acquisition and control hardware. Learn more.
