Santa Clara, Calif. Agilent Technologies Inc. has released the latest version of the Agilent Virtual Rack platform for test system creation and revision in aerospace/defense applications. This platform provides thousands of hardware, software and firmware from many vendors, which are accessible through a Web-like interface that
enables drag-and-drop system creation and modification.
Developers can build new systems or modify existing ones with a Virtual Rack Platform. Virtual Rack frameworks expand the platform capabilities by adding flexible Virtual Rack Modules. Applications are then built atop frameworks to address specific testing needs.
The Agilent Virtual Rack family includes three key products:
- Virtual Rack Platform 7.8: One node-locked computer license to operate hardware, software, firmware and services components mounted and configured by Virtual Rack Integrator.
- Virtual Rack Integrator 7.8: Enables the user to connect, operate, automate and extend hardware, software, firmware and services within a test system.
- Virtual Rack Modules: Enable creation of flexible Virtual Rack frameworks from Virtual Rack Platforms. Currently available Virtual Rack Modules enable networking, telemetry, mnemonics, MIL-STD-1553, FPGA, GPS synchronization and solar-array simulation.
The Agilent Virtual Rack platform will be on display at AUTOTESTCON, September 18-20, 2007, Booth 231.
Pricing: The Agilent Virtual Rack platform is available now, with prices starting at $8,000. Volume discounts are available for multiple-seat installations.
Product information: Virtual Rack platform and Virtual Rack backgrounder.
