KEY FEATURES

  • Simple to use
  • Run stand-alone, no PC required
  • Onboard storage of multiple target system configurations
  • Dynamic selection of output values via intuitive touchscreen interfaces
  • Sufficient onboard processing and reliable communications paradigms enables the stimulation of inputs to complex controllers at OSI level 1
  • Stimuli range from simple digital and analog data, to complex linked Pulse Streams, PWM and CAN communications protocols
  • External control capabilities via USB, Serial and CAN allow for easy integration with existing modelling, datalogger, calibration and signal profiling tools

BENEFITS IN SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

  • Cost-effective
  • Early and frequent evaluation
  • Shorter feedback loops
  • More iterations
  • Greater developer autonomy
  • Reduced development time
  • Lower development cost

APPLICATIONS

Checkta Stimulus Generators mimic sets of input signals to electronic control units, coercing the firmware to execute on the desk. They can be used wherever mechatronic control systems are designed and tested. e.g.
  • Automotive
  • Marine transport
  • Aerospace
  • Power generation
  • Medical

SUPPORTED SIGNALS

  • Analog
  • Digital
  • Frequency
  • PWM
  • Digital Waveform
    • Symmetric
    • Asymmetric
  • CAN communications protocols

Checkta Timeline

2012

First Legacy Prototype

July 2012

First Legacy Prototype
The very first legacy prototype of our Stimulus Generators was created. Output signals were limited to Crank and Twin Cam with Tacho. Patterns could be stored and selected via a rotary switch.
2013

First Legacy Product

March 2013

First Legacy Product
The production model of the first legacy prototype had CAN signals added to it after the first few units had been produced.
2014

First Checkta Prototype

October 2014

First Checkta Prototype
We developed the first prototype of the Stimulus Generators we produce today. Output signals were crank, twin cam, tacho, 2 PWM and 8 digital. This prototype included pattern selection and storage with a 3.4″ touchscreen for user input and control.
