Drivven.com is moving to ni.com/powertraincontrols
Since the Drivven acquisition over two years ago, National Instruments has invested heavily in the area of engine controls, including adding dedicated sales and marketing resources, staffing engineers in NI R&D to develop the next generation of engine control products, and increasing the number of systems engineers who work directly with our customers in engine control and hardware-in-the-loop applications.
The Drivven staff is now known as the NI Powertrain Controls Group.
You can now buy Drivven C-Series modules and NI Direct Injector Driver Systems (formerly known as Drivven SADI systems) directly from ni.com. Throughout 2013, additional Drivven products will become available directly through NI. As we make this transition, certain pages on Drivven.com will redirect visitors to www.ni.com/powertraincontrols. There is no need to worry – all of Drivven’s great products plus more will be available through NI. Stay tuned to www.ni.com/powertraincontrols as NI expands Drivven’s product offering in the future!
Drivven.com will completely redirect to www.ni.com/powertraincontrols by Jan 1, 2014.
Drivven, Inc, of San Antonio, Texas, has provided automotive control and data acquisition solutions for research and production applications since 2003. Drivven’s partnership with National Instruments has led to a new standard of engine and vehicle electronics development systems. These systems combine Drivven’s automotive electronics design expertise with National Instruments’ cutting edge software and hardware products such as LabVIEW, LabVIEW Real-Time targeted to PXI and cRIO computing systems, RIO enabled hardware featuring FPGA technology for critical timing of digital I/O, high speed analog I/O, and signal conditioning.
The Drivven team has drawn on years of FPGA-based automotive electronics experience to create a toolkit of hardware I/O modules and software for RIO covering a wide variety of engine management tasks such as engine position tracking and engine synchronous fuel and spark control. The underlying IP cores of these VIs can be ported directly to production FPGA-based engine management systems.
Using the latest National Instruments products, Drivven provides full authority engine control, analysis and display capabilities. In real-time, the system can call models written in LabVIEW, C and MATLAB (Simulink / Stateflow). It can also simultaneously perform combustion analysis and feedback for next-cycle control algorithms. This eliminates the difficult task of synchronizing recorded data and control parameters between multiple stand-alone systems.
Practical turn-key systems not only require software and computing power, but also sensors, actuators, drive electronics, wiring harnesses, and the expertise to bring it all together. Drivven can provide custom, turn-key development systems in customer test cells or provide engine and vehicle toolkits for every level of engine development.
Effective December 31, 2010, Drivven, Inc is acquired by National Instruments. Read more...
