Control Instrumentation with Python

Posted by Jon Semancik on Aug 17, 2018 10:47:44 AM

Interchangeable Virtual Instruments (IVI) is a standard for instrumentation drivers that is designed to reduce the time and effort needed to integrate measurement devices into new or existing systems. It does this by providing a standard application programming interface (API) that defines common measurement functions. This is, in turn, provided by a standard set of shared components that must be used by all compliant drivers and ancillary software. These components provide services to drivers and driver clients that need to be common to all drivers.

Incorporating COTS Components Eases RF/Microwave Test System Design

Posted by AMETEK Customer Service on Aug 10, 2018 11:32:18 AM

In early 2012, engineers at a prime aerospace manufacturer were assigned the task of replacing several existing integrated test adapters (ITAs) used to test multiple line replaceable units (LRUs) belonging to an Air Force program. One goal was to replace the existing ITAs with as much commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology as possible.

Time Stamping for Multi-channel Data Acquisition Systems

Posted by AMETEK Customer Service on Mar 26, 2018 2:19:59 PM

For multi-channel data acquisition systems, getting the correct readings in the correct timed order is crucial. System designers have two options for acquiring data in a deterministic fashion. They can use a real-time operating system (RTOS), that has a known buffer delay/ processing order or acquire data with a time-stamp for every sample and use precise hardware triggers and an accurate clock.
