FireTrac® provides a very universal approach to dealing with AS5643 type of traffic. It is uniquely suited for SAE AS5643 level Data
Extraction and Analysis (RX) but also Data Generation and Device Simulation (TX).
With the FireTrac® platform DapTechnology has enabled dedicated implementations needed in the A&D environment. Such application-centric solutions are focused on very specific tasks and, due to their very clearly defined requirements, DapTechnology is able to even further optimize the firmware and software architecture.
Examples for such “customized” solutions are:
- Data Recorders (single/multi-channel, with/without Stealth, …)
- System Simulators (multi-streams generator, error injection, …)
- System Monitors (Health, Data Extraction, …)
FireTrac® uses a combination of 1394 and AS5643 support in hardware, as well as a robust, well-designed 1394 software stack (FireStack®) running on a host computer. Interfacing to this stack can be done via an API that offers C/C++ interfaces on multiple platforms and a LabVIEW interface on Windows. Currently, DapTechnology supports Windows, VxWorks, Linux, QNX, IRIX and LabVIEW(RT) platforms.
