United Electronic Industries (UEI; Walpole, MA) released the UEISIM series that offers Simulink users a new, powerful, and flexible I/O target. Models built in Simulink are deployed directly on the UEISIM using The Mathworks’ Real-Time Workshop.
Once programmed, the UEISIM can operate stand alone, or be continuously monitored by a host computer over the Cube’s Ethernet port. This offers the Simulink user a new tool for the creation and tuning of simulation model verification, rapid prototyping (RP), and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing. (Simulink is from The Mathworks).
The UEISIM 300 ($1995) allows the installation of up to three I/O boards. The UEISIM 600 ($12,295) is slightly larger at 4 x 4.1 x 5.8-in. and allows the installation of up to six I/O boards (containing up to 150 analog inputs or 288 DIO). The I/O boards installed are determined by the user’s application. There are currently more than 30 different I/O boards available including analog input, analog output, digital I/O, counter/Timer, quadrature Encoder, serial I/O, CAN bus, and ARINC-429 interfaces.
For complete details, go to the UEISIM series.
