Researchers need a precise, reliable way to process larger amounts of data. Quanser QPIDe Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) control board is designed to do just that. This PCIe-based data acquisition board is ideal for rapid control prototyping and delivers superior real-time performance for your workstation. QPIDe originated from National Instruments RIO technology and is compatible with both LabVIEW™ and MATLAB® to give you easy and quick access to signals.
QPIDe is based on the PCI Express technology for data acquisition applications that require bandwidth to ensure data can be transferred to memory fast enough. With ultra-low I/O conversion times and simultaneous sampling of each I/O type, the QPIDe is suitable for complex controls configurations for research and teaching controls concepts. For example, in order to teach controls or conduct research in areas like aerospace or haptics (e.g. using Quanser HD² High Definition Haptic Device), a more dependable real-time platform can be achieved by pairing QPIDe with a Quanser power amplifier and control design software.
With the QPIDe’s wide range of inputs and outputs, you can easily connect and control a variety of devices instrumented with analog and digital sensors, including quadrature encoders – all with one board! The QPIDe is supported by the QUARC Blockset in Simulink®, the RCP Toolkit in LabVIEW™, and the HIL SDK which provides APIs for C, C++, ActiveX, .NET, and MATLAB® script.
