Minilogger XORAYA ML-Z7

The XORAYA ML-Z7 is a compact and low-cost automotive data logger with customizable interfaces which is based on the Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC.

Product
Overview

The XORAYA ML-Z7 is the latest generation of our compact and low-cost automotive data logger, which is capable of recording various vehicle bus systems simultaniously. Measurement data is either written to the internal hard disk or transferred to an external computer system via Ethernet using a precise, central time stamp with a resolution of 100 ns. Optionally, the data can also be stored on an External Storage Unit. A built-in supercapacitor unit is able to bridge power fluctuations and to shut the data logger down safely in case of power failures.

The data logger has 6x configurable interface slots for plugin cards. The following bus systems are currently supported by the XORAYA ML-Z7:

In addition, an extension to CCP / XCP and a camera interface are available. The support of further bus systems and extensions is also possible on request.

Customer Specific
Adjustments

The modular design of the XORAYA ML-Z7 allows numerous customizations. For example, the device can be assembled or retrofitted according to customer requirements. As a result, the datalogger can be quickly and efficiently adapted to changing conditions and can develop continuously with your projects.

  • Interfaces

The ML-Z7 has 6x slots for plug-in cards, which allow a flexible configuration of the data logger. 9x different interface configurations are supported out-of-the-box.

  • Performance

The built-in Xilinx FPGA-Module can also be exchanged for a more powerful FPGA and  RAMs. In addition, the built-in hard disk space can be extended from 120 GB to 1 TB.

  • Software

Software adjustments are possible on customer request as well. For example, additional export formats can be implemented as needed.

  • Installation

From the customer-specific cable set to the corresponding installation sacks to the complete installation in test vehicles, various customer-specific solutions are offered.
