Custom HIL Testing Solutions

Wineman Technology is a world-class innovator in the design, build, and implementation of complete hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and model-in-the-loop (MIL) systems. As an early pioneer, we developed a complete HIL/MIL software platform using National Instruments LabVIEW that is now NI’s flagship HIL/MIL product, NI VeriStand.

    Test Development and Management Software

    Our software of choice is NI VeriStand, a powerful real-time testing and simulation environment that runs native models without any recompiling or extra licensing fees. We also build with NI LabVIEW, INERTIA, CANalytics, and other software.

    Real-Time Processing and Data Acquisition

    The PXI hardware platform is ideal for HIL testers because of its high-performance, real-time controllers and more than 1,500 modules to choose from. Plus, expansion I/O is easy to add for complex or high channel count applications.

    FGPA Capabilities for Deterministic Timing

    Using customizable field-programmable gate array (FPGA) chips in HIL systems can enhance real-time testing and simulation with deterministic, nanosecond timing.

    Switch, Load, and Signal Conditioning

    Wineman Technology has partnered with OrangeWire Systems to offer NI SLSC modules capable of providing signal conditioning, fault insertion unit (FIU) and load testing, reference voltage handling, current measurement, and more.

    Connectivity to Device Under Test (DUT)

    A mass interconnect that interfaces with the DUT makes life easier with greater flexibility and reliability. The mass interconnect allows the test equipment to quickly and easily connect with the DUT in one clean move.


Our early development efforts and NI VeriStand expertise uniquely qualify us to maximize the benefits of and provide top-notch integration services for this software platform. Wineman Technology offers powerful and flexible MIL and HIL testing solutions, such as:

  • Full range of MIL and HIL test systems
  • Software for testing
  • Software for simulating electronic control modules
  • Fault insertion unit (FIU)

Wineman Technology has partnered with OrangeWire Systems to distribute NI SLSC (switch, load, and signal conditioning) modules that fit in with the rest of the National Instruments real-time platform to create a completely COTS-based HIL architecture. Instead of having to use a custom, one-off solution, customers can now choose SLSC modules capable of providing signal conditioning, fault insertion unit (FIU) and load testing, reference voltage handling, current measurement, and more.

 

With the technology boom of the last decade, the race for first to market for smart devices and autonomous vehicles has never been more apparent. Find out how to build a cutting-edge HIL test system that can keep up with fast-paced innovation without sacrificing accuracy or blowing up costs.
