National Instruments: Engine control modules for rapid prototyping

National Instruments’ six Drivven C Series engine control modules provide rugged, modular engine-specific I/O for interfacing directly with internal combustion engine subsystems and actuators, giving power train control system developers the ability to rapidly prototype their engine sensor and actuator interfaces using the NI LabVIEW FPGA Module.

Using these modules, engineers can prototype engine control algorithms without having to create custom hardware or request lengthy code changes. Injection timing and software parameters can be easily adjusted using the open, intuitive programming language. LabVIEW system design software gives researchers flexibility with engine parameters such as spark and fuel injection timing.

C Series modular hardware offers plug-and-play I/O flexibility to change engine interfaces in second
