The UEIPAC 600-1G 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 vehicle control (UAV and ULV), Hardware in-the-loop (HIL) and more. The UEIPAC is also an ideal solution for a host of embedded DAQ applications as it allows systems to be developed without the cost, or the additional space required by an external host computer.

Each UEIPAC 600-1G Cube contains the PowerPC processor preloaded with the a standard Linux operating system (currently 2.6.x). It also contains dual Gigabit Ethernet NIC ports, serial port, inter-cube sync interface and 6 I/O slots. Configure your PAC by selecting the I/O boards required to match your application. With over 30 different I/O boards available, there's sure to be a configuration to meet your needs.

A key advantage of the UEIPAC is its standalone application deployment. In PowerDNA systems, the VxWorks application is written for, and runs on a host PC that is connected to one or more UEI chassis via Ethernet. In UEIPAC systems, the VxWorks application runs directly on the UEI RACK or Cube. There is no need for a separate host PC, though you can certainly connect one in a monitoring or supervisory role. The new VxWorks support allows these applications to be developed and run in VxWorks. This allows smaller, faster, more reliable and higher performances systems. It also eliminates the cost of a dedicated host PC and guarantees long term availability of the identical hardware. This is critical when certifying products through CE or FDA, etc.

LINUX Deployments

Your application runs as a regular Linux process giving you access to the standard POSIX API provided by the GNU C runtime library (glibc) as well as any other library that can be compiled for Linux (for example: libxml, libaudiofile…).

To develop programs for the UEIPAC, you will need to purchase a copy of the UEIPAC Linux TK programmers toolkit. The toolkit provides the various items needed to write applications for the UEIPAC. Regardless of the number of cubes you deploy, you need only purchase one programming toolkit. UEIPAC is an embedded Linux-based system with no graphical interface. It is very good at network connectivity, which makes it possible to create remote graphical user interfaces (also known as HMI Human-Machine-Interface).

VxWorks Deployments

You may now take advantage of all the hardware advantages of UEI's popular UEIPAC chassis and continue to develop your applications in VxWorks. This powerful combination provides hard real-time performance, an extremely robust and reliable operating system, allows you to develop your application in a familiar environment and last, but not least, allows you to preserve a great deal of previously written code! To deploy a UEIPAC application running VxWorks you'll need the following.

  1. A UEIPAC (any version)
  2. The "UEIPAC VxW BSP". You only need to purchase the BSP once, regardless of the number of systems you deploy
  3. A VxWorks development system (from Wind River)
  4. A VxWorks run-time license for each UEIPAC deployed. (also purchased from Wind River)

The UEIPAC cube may be placed on a desk or table or may be mounted to any flat surface/wall, DIN Rail or in a standard 19" rack. The UEIPAC may be AC, DC or battery powered.
