National Instruments (NI) unveiled seven new R Series devices and five CompactRIO modules for embedded digital signal processing and high-speed control. Engineers and scientists can use these new products to create their own data acquisition and control circuitry through the company's LabVIEW graphical development tools.

The new R Series devices feature a denser 3 million-gate FPGA chip, 40MHz digital I/O (DIO) rates, 200kHz analog input rates, and 1MHz analog output rates. The new R Series plug-in devices include the PXI/PCI-7833R, which is 3M gate multifunction daq devices (8 AI, 8 AO and 96 DIO channels); the PXI/PCI-7813R, a 3M gate digital only DAQ devices (160 DIO channels); the PXI/PCI-7830R, a 1M gate multifunction DAQ devices (4 AI, 4 AO and 56 DIO channels); and the PCI-7811R, a 1M gate digital only DAQ device (160 DIO channels).

The five CompactRIO modules expand the RIO embedded platform with up to 32 channels per module and increased digital performance with 100ns I/O rates. Two of the new CompactRIO modules feature new D-sub connector options for the industrial NI 9221 and NI 9201 analog input modules, offering low-cost cabling options for high-volume OEM applications. The three additional new CompactRIO modules are the NI 9401, an 8-channel, ultrahigh-speed bidirectional TTL digital I/O module with 100ns I/O delay time; the NI 9476, a 32-channel, industrial digital output module with 500?s I/O delay time; and the NI 9265, a 4-channel, 16-bit simultaneous current output module with 100kS/s update rate.

"Since its inception, virtual instrumentation has given users the power to define their own data acquisition and control hardware using high-level software tools," said Tim Dehne, NI's senior vice president of R&D. "These new RIO devices represent a powerful extension of virtual instrumentation. Engineers and scientists can now create and customize their own data acquisition hardware using LabVIEW FPGA technology."
