Embedded processor saves power under
A novel undersea pipeline monitoring system features multiple sensor nodes, each driven by a Blackfin processor.
Blackfin processors form an integral part of the world's first distributed, synchronised undersea pipeline monitoring system, developed by Bjorge based on Naxys technology for Norway's largest-ever industrial project, tapping the Ormen Lange natural gas field The Naxys technology uses hydroacoustics and other noncontact sensor technologies for their complex subsea state monitoring and analysis tasks
The system was developed using National Instruments LabView Development Module for ADI Blackfin Processors.
The LabView Embedded Module for Blackfin Processors is an extension of the LabView graphical development environment and directly targets ADI Blackfin Processors.
When production starts from the Ormen Lange undersea gas field in the autumn of 2007, gas will be pumped through a pipeline 120km long at depths up to 850m to onshore production fac
