Measurement and Data Accuracy
USA Firmware’s engineers have substantial experience in the instrumentation market. We help our clients design, engineer, and develop instrumentation that provides measurement readings, supports data collection, and helps provide controls for their business. We have assisted our clients with developing calibration and analysis instruments and products that measure the following:
- Radio Frequency (RF) power
- Precision low currents
USA Firmware has designed and engineered vibration monitoring systems that digitize, capture and analyze signals from multiple types of vibration sensors in real time. One example of this expertise began with the diagnosis and repair of embedded firmware and FPGA code in a vibration, displacement and acceleration signal conditioner.
By using mathematical analysis to calculate the waveform from the accelerometer input, our team was able to integrate the signal to produce the velocity curve. The lack of an initial condition required the use of detrending math to eliminate trending of the velocity data. Once the detrended the data was used to measure peak-to-peak, peak, and true rms values of the data, the results of these calculations were then pumped into a 4-20mA output in order to drive or notify downstream equipment.
USA Firmware has experience with hardware design updates necessitated by component end-of-life notices. Our team performed embedded Linux firmware development for instrument calibration and control, including logic to control distillation processes for our client’s offshore petroleum offshore rigs.
USA Firmware’s team of engineers have decades of experience in the measurement of photons via scintillation within the fiber optic and radiation measurement industries.
Electronic Test Instruments
Our instrumentation and control engineers have decades of experience in the sensitive test and measurement industry.
Radio Frequency Power
USA Firmware designs for leaders in the Radio Frequency (RF) Power measurement space. One example was a dual channel benchtop power meter with a large touchscreen graphical display and an RF power calorimetry system for metrology labs.
