FREEDOM TO INVENT INCLUDED

Blades are like

snowflakes,

no two are alike...

Except they’re large, metallic, and can fail catastrophically.

Study each blade individually.

GETTING INVENTIVE

Tutorials, datasets, and code using Python.

Free. Forever.

GETTING FAST

Most people:

“Mechanical engineers should stay away from creating FPGA-based applications that basically run at lightspeed.”

Us:

“Hold my beer.”

WHAT WE DO

WE CREATE SOLUTIONS FOR TURBOMACHINERY BLADE VIBRATION MONITORING.

MOST NOTABLY, WE OFFER THE BLADESIGHT KRAKEN, A DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM THAT’LL KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF.

Bladesight Learning Centre:

A website providing free access to tutorials and code for performing advanced turbomachinery monitoring.

Bladesight Data

Datasets released under the Creative Commons 4 license that newcomers can use to write and test their own algorithms.

Bladesight Kraken X4

A data acquisition system for Blade Tip Timing (BTT).

Bladesight HDL

A source-available language for FPGA programming of the Bladesight Kraken.

Bladesight Python package

An open-source Python package that exposes the code developed in the learning centre.

Develop your own FPGA-based applications

Don’t settle for boring vibration monitoring solutions. Use the Kraken and Bladesight HDL to explore FPGA technology. Make your own application for vibration monitoring, nuclear fusion, or surviving the zombie apocalypse (just in case).

9

Amazing signal conditioning

Scale any signal from 50V to 50 mV to full range.

No signal will ever be too small, big, or fast to measure.

9

FAST ADCs

4 X 125 MHz at 14-bit resolution.

We serve those who:

Want to become Python Ninjas

Like to know what’s going on under the hood of your results

Find the idea of building blistering fast FPGA-based applications intriguing
