A Microprocessor Gas Flow Computer
(IMEKO - Institute of Measurement and Control, International Measurement Confederation, International Federation of Automatic Control, 1980-11)
This presentation discusses some of the problems in accurate measurement of the flow rate of hydrocarbon gas; briefly reviews the limitations of analogue solutions; and finally presents a viable solution that employs a ...
Integration and testing of microprocessor based systems.
(Sira-WSL (Warren Springs Laboratories), 1980-04)
The process of integration is the combining of the independently tested software and hardware modules to produce a prototype system. Invariably the integrated system does not work, precipitating the pointed index finger ...
A modular solution to the design of dedicated laboratory equipment
(Sira Ltd, 1980-03)
Microprocessor based instrumentation can be placed in two groups: either the instrument is intended for mass production, or its one of a small production batch of between 1 and 100 units. The project planning of the ...
A Microprocessor Controlled Level Gauge For Use In Petrol Road Tankers
(Measurements we Couldn't Make Without a Micro, IEE Colloquium, 1988-05-17)
This paper discusses the design of a microprocessor controlled level gauge for use in the storage tanks of petrol road tankers . The sensor is based on an original concept used by Marconi for measuring the electrolyte ...

(Sira Ltd, 1982-03)
An comparative study of the Motorola 68000, Zilog Z8000 and Intel 8086
Travelling Wave FETs
Novel sensors for measuring fuel flow and level
(Proceedings of SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering, 1989-03-10)
This presentation will discuss a novel sensing method for measuring fuel flow which was developed for the Ford Motor Co by Sira Ltd. The fuel flow sensor uses an optical technique based on detecting light scattered from ...
