First industrial microcontrollers based on ARM7 core now available

Visteon, one of the world's largest suppliers of automotive systems and components, has adopted National Instruments' products including PXI modular instruments, NI TestStand test management software, LabWindows/CVI and NI-IMAQ vision software to reduce delivery time, costs and floor space in manufacturing.

"We standardised on NI software, including NI TestStand, LabWindows/CVI and NI-IMAQ, and replaced traditional rack-and-stack hardware with NI modular hardware, including PXI, data acquisition, switching, image acquisition and modular instruments," said Virgilio Salazar, Visteon R&D section supervisor. "With this new test system, we reduced our delivery time to our customers from eight to six weeks, with a record time of two weeks, due to software re-use. In addition, we saved more than $13 million and reduced floor space by more than 1300 square feet."

Visteon uses NI tools for automotive consumer electronics manufacturing test for its major automotive manufacturer customers. Due to the flexibility of the PXI platform, Visteon said it adopted one software and hardware platform for a customised, expandable system. The company uses a variety of PXI modular instruments, including the NI PXI-5411 function generator, the NI PXI-2503 multiplexer/matrix relay switch and the NI PXI-4070 FlexDMM, along with the NI PXI-8420 RS232 module and the NI PXI-1411 image acquisition module, to perform radio parametric testing, radio auto alignment testing and climate control parametric testing.

According to Visteon, the flexibility of the platform gives it the tools required to test a wide range of consumer electronics applications with a single modular platform. With the integration of LabWindows/CVI and NI TestStand, the company developed test sequences for different automotive components and also added instrument diagnostics and control tools to its proprietary software.
