To maintain our leadership position in the engine control field, GAC has incorporated advanced technologies into its latest product developments. These technologies range from enhanced analog controls to advanced microprocessor-controlled systems. GAC provides custom integrated electronic design and development, including evaluation and analysis to several standards, which include Military, Automotive, Marine, CE, NFPA, CSA, or customer-specified standards. Below is a synopsis of our capabilities:

Electronic Design

  • 8-, 16- or 32-bit, micro-controllers
  • Analog signal conditioning and interfacing
  • Low-level sensor interfacing (thermocouples, strain gauges)
  • Frequency inputs and outputs
  • Power drive electronics (actuators, valves, solenoids, indicators)
  • Flat panel display systems
  • Electromechanical design
  • Serial/network communication using RS-232/485 and CAN bus / SAE J1939

Software Design Capabilities

  • Real-time embedded software for a wide range of microprocessors
  • GUI-based support software to allow in-circuit reprogramming, data acquisition and monitoring of the embedded application
  • Embedded firmware
  • Control system software

Mechanical Design Capabilities for Rugged Embedded Systems

  • A more recent advancement in CNC
  • Magnetics modeling
  • Thermal analysis
  • Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T)
  • Environmental evaluation

GAC designs, tests and qualifies products that are exposed to severe environmental and EMI conditions for Military, Automotive and Industrial applications. GAC performs tests using in-house resources or our network of independent testing labs.

GAC routinely tests its designs for compliance to the following conditions using CE/CSA safety requirements, or customer specifications:

  • Electromagnetic interference (EMI)
  • Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT)
  • Power supply transients (ISO)
  • Electrostatic discharge (ESD)
  • Mechanical shock
  • Mechanical vibration
  • Temperature extremes (both operating and non-operating)
  • Temperature shock
  • Humidity
  • Water immersion
  • Corrosive atmosphere (salt fog)
  • Sand and dust
  • Load testing
  • Flow bench testing
  • Dynamometers
  • Dynamic Signal Analyzer
  • 5-gas emissions analyzer for emission regulation compliance
  • Control loop and circuit simulation
