Research Institution
Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to model and develop software to provide an interface allowing a common method of incorporating sensing components within different systems. The proposed software package, called the Multifunctional Open-system Sensor Integration Tool (MOSIT), will provide the circuit designer with a complete sensor interface solution. MOSIT will provide not only the Network Capable Application Processor (NCAP) functionality specified within the IEEE 1451.1-1999 standard, but also application software for use by the circuit designer. It will incorporate a user interface to allow designers to view parameters of the Smart Transducer Interface Modules (STIM) and incorporate them within an application framework. MOSIT will provide a simple interface for network connectivity, allowing the STIMs to be recognizable from any device connected to the network. Given the many NCAP functions specified within IEEE 1451, a modeling language should be used to provide insight into object structure and relationships between software components. The Unified Modeling Language provides a standardized set of tools and techniques for mapping these relationships. In this manner, programmers in any language can grasp the structure and functionality of the MOSIT design, allowing for easy upgrading and porting to other computing platforms.
