Whether your developing a brand-new HIL/SIL system or retrofitting a legacy system, today’s technology makes your life easier than ever before. The large, power hungry (often VME based) systems of yesterday are replaced by smaller (e.g. 3U versus 7U), simpler and less expensive modern I/O systems. The expensive, special purpose CPUs often used in earlier systems are now replaced by off-the-shelf, multicore DELL (or equivalent) PCs. Simulating the various signals necessary has historically required expensive, custom or semi-custom electronics while today these simulated signals are generated by low-cost, COTS modules. Even wiring and interconnection is simpler. The bulky (often wire-wrap) interconnection panels of the past are replaced by small, low cost PCBs. Rather than manually switching between the actual LRU/Sensor, a simulated signal and/or an error signal, in today’s system this switching is done instantly via high density, inexpensive mux/switch boards.
This webinar will describe the latest generation of SIL/HIL/Hybrid-Test-Bench products and how they help you, the system designer (and often end-user), build a powerful, efficient and price effective solution.
