ChronoLogic is devoted to providing the world’s best precision timing systems and synchronized measurement instruments in a universal distributed platform, extending the capabilities of conventional USB with its patented ‘USB-inSyncTM’ technology.
In September 2002, Silex acquired a 51 percent interest in ChronoLogic and, in 2005, increased its interest to 90 percent as a result of a restructuring of the business.
As part of the restructuring, ChronoLogic shifted its focus from the depressed optical communications market to the growing data acquisition and instrumentation markets, which continues to be its predominant commercialisation focus.
The target markets for ChronoLogic’s initial range of products are quite considerable, amounting to several billions of dollars revenue annually. They include (in order of importance):
Test & Measurement Market
Data Acquisition Market
Precision Timing Market
ChronoLogic has recently developed a new range of instruments for the test and measurement industry called ‘Distributed Virtual Instrumentation’ (DVI), incorporating its ‘USB-inSyncTM’
technology. ChronoLogic is also pioneering new USB-based connectivity standard called ‘UXI’ to extend cross-platform interoperability from existing technology to the ‘USB-inSyncTM
Virtually every consumer product we use today has been manufactured and tested in plants and laboratories using data acquisition and control systems, and test and measurement instrumentation. Applications fall within the Test, Control and Automation areas, including the semiconductor, automotive and mining industries through to medical diagnostics and food processing.
A large number of these applications require synchronous measurements and acquisition of data, and the ability to control processes and/ or events with precise relative timing. These requirements are addressed for the first time on a USB-based instrumentation platform by ChronoLogic.
technology transforms the ubiquitous USB connection from a simple consumer connectivity data-bus to an instrumentation grade interface with class-leading synchronisation capabilities.
