Differential Genix DGF-POD

The Genix DGF-POD supports up to 16 I/O modules in a single plug-in card arrangement.

DGF in the product title stands for Differential Genix POD with Fault Insertion.

What is a Genix POD?

Genix PODs are plug-in boards that comprise two or more circuit boards to maximise the use of the space within a sub-rack.

Typically a POD will have a front board with status LEDs, robust convenient terminations and sockets for Genix plug-in modules.

1 to 16 Genix I/O modules may be installed as required, supporting up to 16 differential channels or 32 single-ended channels per POD.

Why differential?

Many HIL systems are single-ended, meaning the 0V reference for each channel is brought back to a single point or series of points on the system. Our HIL systems are configurable between single-ended and differential to allow you to use specific reference points for some critical pins to reduce the chances of induced noise and ground offsets commonly found on larger systems.

Differential fault insertion?

The fault insertion may also be configured for differential use when necessary by utilising the negative input pin’s fault channel.

How does the fault insertion work?

Each DGF board has a further board built into the POD that allows each I/O line to be open circuited, shorted to one of two 0V lines or shorted to one of three supplies. In addition, each line can be shorted to another line via the ‘fault bus’.

In test scenarios it is thus possible to test for all the standard fault modes within the normal HIL environment.

If an I/O line takes excess current during the fault testing, the fault card protects itself against damage and reports a trip to ensure the test is invalidated.

To increase the current rating of a channel (to more than 40Amps) the channels can be ‘grouped’.

I/O modules

The I/O modules are the “brains” of the POD, providing all signal conditioning or I/O generation via the on-board DSP.

Each POD may have one or more I/O modules plugged into it, making efficient use of space within the system and providing good signal routing between the real-time-target and the ECU or system under test.

Intelligent I/O or signal conditioning

Genix PODs are available for both intelligent I/O modules and for pure signal conditioning modules.

H3-DGF POD supports the H3 intelligent I/O modules. H1-DGF-POD supports the signal conditioning I/O range.
