Design and Test Engineers
The solution, designed by CertTech, uses custom, real-time data analysis leveraging FPGA’s along with multiple 8-channel cards each with extended voltage front ends. The combined packages come pre-programmed with two different analysis solutions:
Edge Triggered Recording
This method uses a programmable trip level (up to 4 per channel) along with a programmable delay and a voltage reading. This is used to precisely characterize high voltage pulses that occur over a long period of time. Each event is time stamped with time and voltage level.
Windowing Triggered Recording
This method uses a programmable event window to trigger an event, then resets the event window (each event is time stamped). This is an easy way to characterize pulse patterns or step changes to a signal that may occur over long periods of time without continually recording the data.
Since the platform is based on the FlexRIO FPGA, custom data algorithms may be easily programmed. The power of the FPGA architecture manifests itself in a number of ways. These benefits include increased performance, time to market, cost, reliability and long-term maintenance. Taking advantage of hardware parallelism, FPGAs exceed the computing power of digital signal processors (DSPs) by breaking the paradigm of sequential execution and accomplishing more per clock cycle. Further, controlling inputs and outputs (I/O) at the hardware level provides faster response times and specialized functionality to closely match application requirements.
