The Project

To develop a fully automated, self contained and portable universal test station using National Instruments hardware, specialised avionics test equipment and total LabVIEW control.

Our capabilities on show

PCB design



The Solution

Using a National Instruments PXI/SCXI combination chassis containing a Pentium controller unit with GPIB a Digital Multimeter, Scope, Function Generator, Digital IO and a 4×128 Matrix module a Test rack was constructed. A LabVIEW application was written to take the previously tedious manual tests and automate them using the NI hardware. GPIB commands were used to control specialised avionics test equipment.

The Results

We designed applications to test two different radios, a transponder and a control panel. Continuing development will see many more test modules for different equipment being developed, making use of the existing test station hardware.
