Embedded in Test & Measurement Technology

Embedded in your success!

To achieve the best results in the test and measurement (T&M) sector, the utilized embedded computer technologies must meet the highest demands in terms of quality and reliability. Further requirements include scalability, operational safety and a long service life as well as long-term availability to protect investments. Advanced graphical user interfaces with touch and gesture control – already indispensable today – continue to gain importance.

New challenges in T&M technology
 

T&M technology is becoming more and more sophisticated – for example, because the electronics to be tested is operating at ever higher frequencies, which requires increasingly precise T&M technology. Equipping T&M technology with IIoT connectivity presents further challenges for developers. Manufacturers want to monitor and manage their real-time T&M systems remotely and collect big data, while users want to monitor them on central cloud dashboards. Appropriate gateways and firewalls need implementing.

Real-time capability
 

congatec pays special attention to real-time capability during product development. The congatec BIOS/UEFI implementation is of particularly high quality, yielding significantly improved real-time results for OEM customers. By cooperating with OSADL, this real-time capability can be tested over an extremely long time.

Ready for the future with congatec!
 

Embedded computer boards and modules from congatec are the first choice for all current and future T&M projects. For applications with special requirements that cannot be met with standard, off-the-shelf computer technology, congatec also offers many options to modify the hardware and firmware. Everything is possible, from BIOS/UEFI adaptation and individual board assembly to complete platform development.

The performance spectrum ranges from energy-efficient ultra-low power ARM processor technology with passive cooling for the smallest mobile test systems with long battery life, to high-end x86 multicore platforms for the most powerful, most sensitive multi-channel oscilloscopes with the highest bandwidth in the gigahertz range, including data analysis. For all these tasks, congatec works closely together with customers to develop the solution that’s best for them.

Perfectly matching real-time hypervisor support
 

Hypervisor support from Real-Time Systems makes the embedded computer technologies from congatec even more attractive. It allows multiple operating systems to be installed on a multicore x86 platform without impacting real-time capability. Each sub-application can be implemented with the appropriate operating system – e.g. real-time data acquisition with VxWorks, the user interface with Windows, and a firewall with Linux. Since Real-Time Systems is a wholly owned subsidiary of congatec, the distances between the two companies are very short, which gives OEMs a time advantage in support cases and promotes interdisciplinary solutions.

High security inclusive
 

By providing numerous BIOS/UEFI security options and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) support, congatec enables customers to implement a high level of security that is optimized for their specific solution requirements.
