OrangeWire’s approach to Application Lifecycle Management is built around our suite of hardware and software tools for digital system virtualization. 

Our modular xIL framework allows simulation and emulation of digital systems for modeling at the conceptual stage of development.  We lower the cost of validation and verification by moving integration and acceptance forward in the hardware and software development lifecycles:

  • Lower cost per user and per line of code tested.
  • More software verification and greater product throughput
  • Fast, early software verification and shorter product delivery cycles
  • Increased product reliability and lower product risk
  •  Lower cost to deploy code across many product variants



Our xIL solutions are based on National Instruments’ modular Switch Load Signal Conditioning (SLSC) architecture. SLSC provides complete flexibility at the component, drawer and rack levels of integration, allowing incremental scalability in applications across the entire product development lifecycle.

OrangeWire’s hardware products cover a full spectrum of MIL/HIL requirements for sensor and actuator emulation, failure insertion, and isolated power distribution and management.
