Over the years, API has provided consultancy to many companies and institutes of
all sizes, large or small. Majority of them repetitively use API services. The high
return rate speaks for the quality and value that API's service provide.
Based on research and development, API also developed award winning cable product
for home entertainment industry.
Analysis Plus, Inc. (API) was incorporated in 1993, to provide electrical engineering
consulting service to worldwide industrial companies and research institutes.
API used electromagnetic FEA software to help an automotive supplier to successfully
design an electronic control module to meet SAE and OEM EMC/EMI specification without
conducting any EMC/EMI test. Prototyping and testing cost savings were in the millions,
let alone the time savings.
API used electromagnetic FEA software to help a medical device manufacturer to design
an electric motor too small to prototype. The design parameters were completely determined
by analysis results. First prototype passed all the specification. Cost savings were
in the millions.
API used electromagnetic FEA and mixed signal system simulation software to help
an automotive supplier to analyze an ABS wheel speed sensor assembly failure modes
and conditions, and recommended effective circuit and packaging design changes. The
re-designed assembly has not experienced any failure yet. The potential part recall
cost savings were in the ten million range.
API used electromagnetic FEA software to help an automotive supplier to design a
slip electric motor. API also designed and prototyped the electronic slip ratio control
unit for the motor. The supplier has obtained several patents for the system and
it is in production.
API used mixed signal system simulation software to help an automotive supplier to
determine a door lock mechanism failure cause. The consequential fatigue test confirmed
the analysis results. The supplier was able to produce the mechanism successfully
without any future failure.
API designed a data acquisition system to measure a MRI machine room electromagnetic
fields. API then used electromagnetic FEA software to design magnetic shielding for
the room. The company responsible for the room construction was able to save tens
of thousands dollars in construction material cost alone.
API developed Saber models of a turbo charged diesel engine control mechanism for
an automotive supplier. The models are used for OEM DFSS effort. The mechanism has
hydraulic, electromagnetic, and electronic components. The models can comprehend
thermal environmental, manufacturing part tolerance, and aging effects.
API designed, developed and prototyped an assembly line tester for an automotive
electronics supplier to test its in-vehicle entertainment devices. API designed the
control and test logic in MATLAB/Simulink and auto-coded. Along with RTOS and device
drivers, the code was compiled and flashed into the tester. API also developed PC
HMI for the tester. The tester has been used on assembly line ever since.
API produced different level fidelity Saber models of a PFC-capable AC-DC power supply
device for an aerospace supplier. The models are used for system simulation to verify
power system control stability, EMC/EMI performance, and power system sizing.
API developed an HIL simulation system for an automotive supplier to test heavy-duty
truck brake system control module. A typical such system would costs close to a million
dollars. This system only costs $65K, besides consulting fees.
