Case Studies

  • Eurofighter hydraulic test rig
    The purpose of hydraulic test rig project was to provide a software solution to control a hydraulic test bench and execute sequences to test the performance and functionality of hydraulic components from the Eurofighter aircraft
  • Using FPGA to synchronise high speed production line events
    Our client had a problem where they were testing their product at very high speed (10 meters per second) where there were a number of sensors spaced out on a production line with an eject mechanism to reject failures
  • NI’s Compact RIO platform delivers a major impact in the world of PCB assembly inspection
    Combining the benefits of the NI Compact RIO FPGA platform and the user interface qualities of LabVIEW helped Amfax develop the world’s most accurate PCBA inspection system.
  • AmFax PXI-Based Bluetooth Measurement Suite
    The AmFax PXI-5060 Bluetooth 1.2, 2.0 +EDR PXI Radio Test Set is a highly optimized platform for accurately testing Bluetooth enabled devices. The system provides a highly integrated set of measurement routines that can be integrated into the manufacturing process or utilized in development
