MICROGen is an automotive specification universal electronic control unit. It provides software-configurable I/O and signal conditioning, using industry standard SimuLink®.
MICROGen is based on a subset of our proven Genix technology to provide exceptionally rapid deployment in HILST and rapid control prototyping applications.
We originally designed MICROGen as an in-vehicle system, but its compact size and robust construction make it suitable for mobile installation in vehicles, aircraft, rolling stock or other mobile situations. It's a genuine “plug and go” unit that allows you to deploy and/or test algorithms that you need to interface to the real world.
Like all of our products, MICROGen is designed for flexibility:
· Modular construction allows upgrading of Microcontroller, Comms or I/O Boards
· Immense expansion capability utilising the additional plug-in stack boards
· Ability to run code created from SimuLink® blocks
· SimuLink® block-set for configuration of I/O and signal conditioning
· Support for a very wide range of communications formats
Prototype Automotive fleets
MICROGen is especially cost effective for fleet runs - it is designed and manufactured from the ground up to be a reliable platform for in-vehicle use and is manufactured using state-of-the-art automatic test equipment.
Small volume rapid prototyping
MICROGen is highly cost effective - even for one-offs. The flexible on-board signal conditioning allows you to begin work straight away while the modular scaleable I/O structure means that you will always be able to deal with unforeseen adjustments.
Distributed flexible test systems
Due to its multiple CAN channels and its flexible I/O MICROGen can be used in distributed test systems in production or development environments utilising a range of digital, analogue, CAN,
LIN, K-Bus, RS232 and RS485 sensors.
