C Series engine control modules for rapid prototyping
24 July 2012
National Instruments has released six Drivven C Series engine control modules.
These 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.
“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 modules feature LabVIEW FPGA drivers meanign that engineers can easily adjust injection timing and software parameters using an open, intuitive programming language. Also, thanks to the modular I/O, engineers can rapidly prototype all the I/O necessary for a production engine controller.
