Prototype Evalauation and Control

If you are a domain expert working on a brand new concept, how can you improve your system and prove it works?

We can provide custom measurement and control systems for prototype evaluation. Using these you can build a proof of concept without waiting around for full system prototypes and development.

We’ll help you evaluate your technology

We can help you use the power of LabVIEW and LabVIEW FPGA to prove your concept quickly.

We’ll help you build a proof of concept based on National Instruments platforms, with several benefits:

  • We can develop systems quickly in LabVIEW – our experience and expertise with highly productive language mean that we’re well-versed in this area.
  • We can use high-quality measurement hardware initially so you can be sure that if there are any problems, it reveals the concept to be flawed, not the prototype.
  • Through LabVIEW, we can target Desktop PCs, embedded processors and even FPGAs, so we can confidently find the right platform for supporting the type of algorithm you need to run.
  • We can easily integrate many other systems through LabVIEW’s various interfaces.

 

All of this means faster progress for you, both in your level of understanding and taking your concept to full prototyping and production.

 

"Communication was a concern when we hired a consultant on our FPGA project however Wiresmith Technology were extremely responsive and supportive. They quickly and fully understood our needs and were flexible when problems arose, finding ways or solutions to get the job done.

The deliverable were completed on time which allowed us to demonstrate our technology concept. Even after this James provided technical support until we were happy with the system. We would absolutely recommend them as a reliable, flexible and friendly partner."

FAQs

What if you’re not familiar with our domain?

We consider ourselves Systems Engineers.

With a comprehensive background in engineering, we’re yet to encounter a domain for which we’ve not been able to resolve any issues – and moreover, then go on to suggest further improvements.

We’re always mindful of your insight and expertise which is why we constantly liaise with you and perform regular demos and testing to make sure we’re on track.

 

Isn’t the NI prototyping hardware expensive?

It can be. When you’re creating early prototypes, the key goal is to prove that the idea works. You don’t want to be in a situation where the prototype doesn’t work and you’re unsure whether it’s down to a flawed idea or the actual hardware itself.

By using the NI hardware, you can be confident that it’s going to perform to its full capability.

Some of the benefits are:

  • The measurement quality is laboratory-grade, with excellent signal conditioning and 24 bit options throughout.
  • The processors and OS are extremely powerful, and the FPGA offers unprecedented signal processing capability.
  • Typically, no custom electronic hardware is needed, meaning there’s no additional time required or cost for design or verification.

 

How will I know if you’re any good?!

Requesting external support can be unsettling, particularly when you don’t have expertise in that specific area. We can relate to that as we’ve used external contractors ourselves to support us on languages that we’re less familiar with.

Programming capability is especially hard to capture objectively or through an absolute value, so we would invite you to:

  1. Review our credentials in About Us.
  1. Read our testimonials.
  1. Approach National Instruments and ask them about us. Because of our former working relationship with NI, it’s highly likely that your local field engineer will know of us and the quality of our work – and be happy to give you their independent opinion.
