Miniaturized System for Intelligent Signal Processing (MiSIS, 2014–2016)
There is an increasing demand for intelligent technical systems on a variety of application fields. For this reason, Sinus Messtechnik GmbH, a manufacturer of measurement devices, intends to develop and market a new hardware module for intelligent signal processing. Such an intelligent system can be a very effective aid for measurement engineers and help to minimize the risk of errors, particularly for complicated and safety-relevant measurement tasks.
In this project we develop a miniaturized, modular, and universal hardware module for intelligent signal processing and pattern recognition. Compared to other products—which are less complex, less universal, or both—our module will be very compact and suitable for integration into off-the-shelf handheld computers. Currently, a custom hardware module with algorithms implemented on FPGAs or ASICs is the only possible technical realization for a miniaturized system of such complexity.
The MiSIS device will not only allow measurements. It will also be capable of an automatic, knowledge-based interpretation of the measurements results. A modular hardware concept and universal algorithms make the system suitable for a broad variety of measurement and testing tasks.
