AUSTIN, TX: National Instruments Corporation (NI), a developer of automated test equipment and virtual instrumentation software has unveiled the release of new integrated systems hardware based on LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture.

LabVIEW is a system-design platform and development environment for visual programming language and supports interfacing to devices, instruments and NI hardware platforms such as CompactDAQ and CompactRIO.

Now the recent hardware consist compact Controller for FlexRIO which instruments agile control algorithms and enhanced signal processing for 30 plus I/O adapter modules along with Dual-Core ARM processor. In addition high-performance CompactRIO Controller, featuring Intel Atom processor, Kintex-7 FPGA, NI Linux real-time 64 bit OS and embedded User Interface cutting component cost. CompactRIO Controller handles more tasks using same controller and process data with aggregated precession and accuracy. It provides broaden visibility of various applications and robust IP and enables users to store, manage and access data.

“NI’s LabVIEW RIO architecture delivers a complete platform so engineers can quickly design, prototype and deploy embedded systems for advanced monitoring and control applications in the IIoT”, says Jamie Smith, Director of Embedded Systems, NI.

 Single-Board RIO Controller is among the latest offering of NI that accommodates 667 MHz ARM processor, Artix-7 FPGA, Zynq system-on-a-chip with NI Linux real-time to elevate system performance and Code Reuse functionality to minimize expenditure that take place during application prototyping and deployment. 

These security driven controllers will facilitate system designers and machine builders to cope up with industrial IoT applications control and monitoring challenges. It also combines intelligent systems and enable communication between systems supported with analytical software tools tailored to deliver business insights and customer value.
