ADX - AD5436 Simulation and Control System


The AD5436 is a high-speed measurement and control system that can be customized for a wide variety of applications. It addresses various systems requirements by combining multiple I/O boards and a CPU employing RTOS with excellent real-time performance through MATLAB/SimulinkĀ® control models and A&D's GUI-generating and experimentation support tool, VirtualConsole.

After downloading compiled Simulink/Stateflow models onto the AD5436, it is possible to monitor and change parameters for operation, measurement, and control. The AD5436 has 14 programmable function keys and a touch-screen interface for stand-alone functionality, or it can be controlled via a Windows PC Ethernet connection and A&D's VirtualConsole software. It is also possible to connect, modify, and operate multiple AD5436s over a network for advanced applications requiring ultra-high processing power or for distributed control.
