The multi-channel universal signal-conditioning interface
Keywords Testing, MMI
The development cycle is often extended by the need for custom signal conditioning to match real world voltages and currents to the low level signals of computer based testing devices. "Genix" will eliminate that delay.
"Genix" is a modular multi-channel generic interface offering up to 3000 channels of flexible signal conditioning - each channel being fully configurable under software control. Using a simple Windows set up screen each channel can be designated as analogne or digital, input or output - all with selectable gain, signal levels and loading.
"Genix" was initially developed for a UK luxury car manufacturer. This manufacturer is leading the move towards rapid prototyping and large-scale hardware-in-the-loop simulation testing, gaining significant savings in costs and development time.
Established in 1990, add2 specialises in PC based systems for test, process monitoring and control. It has a well-earned reputation for rugged electronics and reliable software developed on its knowledge of real time control in the automotive industry. It is now saving development time and expense with "Genlx".
