Case Studies

  • A Flexible, Cost-Effective BMS Manufacturing Test Platform
    A flexible, cost-effective production test system for several designs of battery balancing, monitoring, and management system (BMS) printed circuit board assemblies. BMS test system requirements include simulating a pack of advanced chemistry batteries, performing high accuracy voltage and current measurements, and communicating with the BMS under test via serial and/or CAN.
  • Energy Storage Testing Enables Distributed Technologies on the Power Grid
    Bloomy’s ESS DAC System executes a variety of functional, performance, life cycle, and application-specific tests to validate distributed energy storage (DES) specifications for rating, capacity and efficiency.
  • Headless ATE System
    Bloomy’s Headless ATE is an automated test platform that is extremely simple to operate and does not require a PC. It consists of a 3U enclosure containing NI Single-Board RIO with LabVIEW software, a power supply, and preexisting commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) test instruments.
  • Automated Resistance Mapping of LGA Chip Module Contact Grid
    System verifies uniform force distribution and quality of electrical connectivity on a pressurized land grid array (LGA) interposer and automates a time-consuming and physically prohibitive process involving substantial measurement, data recording, and data presentation.

Turn Key Systems

  • Battery HIL System
    Bloomy's Battery Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Simulation System provides a safe and efficient method for battery manufacturers and automotive companies to evaluate battery management systems (BMSs) for hybrid and electric vehicles.
  • Curve Trace System
    Bloomy's Curve Trace System utilizes the latest hardware and software technologies to provide a high density, high speed, fully automated IC characterization system. Standard voltage-current curves can be generated for any combination of pins to characterize a large assortment of ICs and other semiconductor devices.
  • Centrifuge Data Acquisition System
    By applying appropriate data acquisition techniques, the stresses and response of a geotechnical system can be verified throughout a model. This includes measurements in the ground at different locations, the movement of a structure, and video imagery of a sequence of events leading to seismic event.
  • Universal Test System (UTS)
    A proven and flexible functional test platform to assess mixed signal PCBA and subassemblies. DUT specific fixtures are mass interconnected to the PXI instrumentation base, allowing high-mix production environments to reuse its test instrumentation under the control of a TestStand test executive.

Products

PXI, C Series, FlexRIO Modules

  • compactUTS (cUTS)
    A small functional test product that packs a DMM, DAQ, switching and power control into a desktop package that employs a mass interconnect cable to a PCBA or subassembly under test. Attach a standard PC via USB to control the cUTS via LabVIEW or TestStand.
  • MIL-STD-1553B C-Series Module
    Bloomy’s 1553B C Series module provides MIL-STD-1553B communication functionality in a rugged National Instruments (NI) CompactRIO form factor. The module includes a single dual-redundant bus interface that can operate in bus controller, remote terminal, and bus monitor modes.
  • Battery Simulator 1200
    Provides a safe and efficient method to emulate a broad range of battery cell conditions with 12 independently controlled channels of high accuracy simulated cell outputs (5V, ±500mA, 0.1%) that are isolated up to 1000VDC. Multiple simulators can be connected in series to simulate a full EV battery pack.

LabVIEW Tools Network

  • Class Creator Utility
    The Bloomy Class Creator Utility streamlines the process of defining, creating and configuring a LabVIEW class in the native environment easily from a single location.

Solutions

  • Battery Management System (BMS) Test Platform
    Our BMS test solutions cover the complete BMS product development lifecycle from benchtop simulation and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) testing, through validation and manufacturing functional test.
  • Universal Electronic Functional Test Platform
    Bloomy’s UTS platform combines modular hardware and software to provide a powerful, cost-effective solution for low-medium volume, high-mix functional testing of printed circuit board assemblies.
