Device Manager

Device Manager is used to create, manipulate, and activate HIL device setups.

Device Manager is a tool used for defining, manipulating, loading, and deploying HIL device setups to an instance of Typhoon HIL Control Center. A HIL setup is a set of devices which can be connected (activated) and used by Typhoon HIL Control Center. It is globally visible to instance of Typhoon HIL Control Center and all accompanying tools. Both USB and Ethernet connected devices are supported.

  1. Device Manager actions
    Action icon Description
    Perform detection of HIL devices (USB or Ethernet).
    Set HIL devices listed in Active HIL setup to be busy for other users on the network (Ethernet only).
    Open existing HIL setup file.
    Save HIL setup to a file.
    Save HIL setup under a new file name.
    Add device manually to the current setup using its serial number.
    Add HIL devices by IP address if network auto-detection fails for some reason.
    Default setup Choose saved HIL setup to be the default for Typhoon HIL Control Center.
  2. Active HIL setup

    Located in the left part of the Device Manager dialog. It allows one or more HIL devices to be added to the HIL setup from the Detected devices UI part (which is located to the right). If this list is empty Typhoon HIL Control Center will use an implicit HIL setup (i.e. the first compatible device for your model that it finds). Active HIL setup will show a setup name, connection status, and a list of HIL devices in it. Devices are added/removed using the arrow buttons between the Active HIL setup and the Detected devices.

  3. Detected devices

    Lists all detected HIL devices along with their information. It is used as a pool from which devices can be added to HIL setup.
