SmartPower Stack™ Consortium Announces Selection of National Instruments Single-Board RIO General Purpose Inverter Controller
The SmartPower Stack™ Consortium, comprised of Methode Electronics, Inc. (NYSE: MEI), SBE Inc., Fuji Electric Corp. of America and AgileSwitch, LLC today announced the selection of the National Instruments (NASDAQ: NATI) ("NI") Single-Board RIO General Purpose Inverter Controller (GPIC) as the integrated control system for a new 100 kilowatt intelligent power stack module. The NI GPIC features cutting-edge Xilinx field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology with 58 integrated DSP cores to deliver 40 times higher performance per dollar than traditional DSP-based control systems. The SmartPower Stack™ with NI GPIC also includes a comprehensive NI LabVIEW system design software that eliminates any need for knowledge of VHDL or Verilog programming languages and enables the development of advanced LabVIEW FPGA control algorithms in a high-fidelity desktop co-simulation environment.
The SmartPower Stack™ consists of SBE high-performance wound film capacitors; Fuji Electric Corp. of America industry-leading insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs); AgileSwitch cutting-edge IGBT gate drives; Methode Electronics innovative bus bar power distribution, thermal management, and ISO 9001 manufacturing assembly and test capabilities; and the industry-leading NI GPIC control system powered by LabVIEW software.
Through technical and business collaboration, the consortium is creating a fully-integrated SmartPower Stack™ 100 kilowatt three-phase inverter sub-system to significantly reduce the cost and risk of deploying next-generation, smart grid-ready, digital energy conversion systems. This effort represents the industry's first collaboration to bring together best-in-class technologies and graphical system design tools in a way that simultaneously reduces cost and increases performance through technology integration that spans the boundaries between each company.
