NI gives engineers embedded system platform flexibility

Posted: 06 Dec 2004 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share


National Instruments (NI) announced that engineers can now extend its CompactRIO reconfigurable embedded system platform by creating their own custom I/O modules for applications requiring unique and specialized I/O signal types.

By using the new CompactRIO Module Development Kit from NI, embedded system developers can access the low-level electrical architecture of their CompactRIO systems and design unique I/O, communication or control modules. They then can use the company's labview to program the CompactRIO reconfigurable fpga chipset to communicate with their new custom module circuitry at rates exceeding 40Mbps.

CompactRIO is a small, rugged, high-performance industrial control and acquisition platform that uses LabView FPGA reconfigurable I/O (RIO) technology to deliver a highly customizable embedded control and measurement system, the company explained. The CompactRIO Module Development Kit delivers all the tools engineers need to build a customized module, including custom CompactRIO module development software, the CompactRIO Module Development Kit user manual and the licensed right to develop and manufacture custom CompactRIO I/O modules. In addition, the development kit includes a set of CompactRIO module housings with a variety of connector options and is designed for end users, OEMs and system integrators working with highly specialized measurements.
