Development of the Mikromax software for detailed ignition spark analysis

Robert Bosch

Since 2002, GIGATRONIK has been developing a highly specialised software solution with Robert Bosch GmbH to analyse ignition sparks, ignition voltages and currents. Over the last 14 years, the application has been further developed and flexibly adapted to the high requirements of the customer. In its current version, the software includes numerous functions for the precise calculation of spark duration and spark energy in ignition coils with single and multiple spark technology. Thanks to a client server solution, measurement data can be transmitted between the measurement systems and the evaluation system via WLAN and evaluated. This makes measurement and analysis processes even more efficient and flexible.
