PHiL is a low cost, yet ultra useful electronics test and prototyping system that lets you drive and capture digital and analog signals, either individually or coordinated. Connect 60+ designated input and output signals, and control is at your fingertips. Whether you want to drive a motor, monitor motor position, control temperature, graph impedance... PHiL lets you test or prototype with ease.
The PHiL Graphical User Interface lets you poke and prod at individual items, and/or dynamically create a custom dashboard with buttons, gauges, graphs, sliders (and more) to exercise your system. These widgets are placed with drag 'n drop ease, and customized with drop-down selections or Python scripting.
Phil is designed to work with the Parlaytm
Client needed a test system to verify software on a small battery operated medical device with user buttons, LEDs, and DC motor.
Using PHiL they are able to simulate user button presses, and chart the motor position, PWM duty cycle, and voltage over time as the device performed its tasks.
Client needed to generate 4 PWM signals to test and qualify temperature control for their system. Previously limited to 1 PWM signal at a time with a signal generator, PHiL lets them output and control duty cycle for all their temperature controllers, and lets them monitor the output.
With PHiL, client finally found solution to coordinating multiple sensors and controllers under one umbrella. Bringing USB controlled pumps, camera, SPI ADCs, PWM outputs, and more, the chemistries of this clients prototype diagnostic instrument was quick and easy to assemble.
