Ben is a former employee of DISTek and spent several years working with our engineering teams, including leading a HIL development team. Ben transitioned to a Sales Engineer role, where his engineering background and MBA combined to help bring solutions to our customer.
Recently, DISTek spent a week in Louisville, KY to attend a couple of industry shows. First up was the AETC conference where we sponsored a couple students to attend the conference, had a supplier display table, and also participated in a presentation on updates in the ISOBUS world.
The 63rd annual Farm Progress Show was recently held in Boone, Iowa. Among the 100,000+ visitors, a few of the DISTek Integration employee-owners were there to check in on the industry and enjoy a day out in the field.
In recent years Hardware-In-The-Loop (HIL) testing has become a standard part of the embedded software development process. Two trends in the embedded software development world, reduced time to market and an increase in complexity has created the need for better, more dynamic test platforms. HIL platforms provide a way to test the embedded software of a microcontroller in a real time, accurate way prior to integration on the final system.
