HIL

Purpose

HIL system for automotive ECU validation

 

PXI HIL Systems

 

Features

The system is based on the NI Veristand software platform. The hardware platform is NI PXI chassis and real-time controller, with the addition of other I/O modules from NI, third party manufacturers and Alma Automotive custom devices. The following is a baseline list of features that can be modified based on specific user needs:

 

  • Real time controller with last generation processing power (up to quad core CPUs)
  • Easy system definition with Veristand System Explorer interface
    • Base system configuration (step-time, cpu allocation)
    • HW channels definition (analog, digital, CAN)
    • Model DLL import from Labview or Simulink/Stateflow
    • User and calculated channels definition
    • Channel mappings
    • Custom devices setup
  • Flexible GUI for easy run-time customization of the workspace
  • FPGA based engine simulation module with
    • Dual channel VRS/Hall engine position sensor simulation capable of 120Vpp
    • Angle based waveform generation module
    • Quad channel wheel simulation
    • 12 channels high-voltage angle based inputs
    • 16 channels high-voltage general purpose digital inputs (on/off, frequency, PWM)
    • 8 channels high-voltage analog inputs
  • FPGA based fault insertion units 
    • 32 channels power FIU, with 2 general purpose busses + open circuit, 20A capable
    • 64 channels sensors FIU, with 4 general purpose busses + open circuit, 2A capable
    • Make-before-break switch operation
    • User selectable fault current limiting with feedback signals
  • High resolution resistor simulation
  • Rugged desktop rack enclosure
