San Jose, Ca. ” At the ESC here, National Instruments unveiled a new suite of I/O modules for expanding the measurement communication capabilities of NI Single-Board RIO embedded control and data acquisition devices.
Combining an embedded real-time processor, a reconfigurable field-programmable gate array (FPGA) and onboard analog and digital I/O on a single printed circuit board (PCB), NI Single-Board RIO devices are used for applications that require flexibility, high performance and reliability in a small form factor.
Engineers and scientists can plug the 15 new embedded C Series modules into NI Single-Board RIO devices to add capabilities such as high-voltage power monitoring, high-resolution analog input, strain and communications to their embedded applications.
According to John Hanks, vice president of product marketing for data acquisition and industrial control at National Instruments, with the new embedded C Series modules, engineers and scientists easily can add measurement quality I/O to their applications by plugging any combination of the new modules directly into the three I/O expansion ports on NI Single-Board RIO devices.
The 15 modules include a three-channel, 300 V analog input, 16-channel analog output module; four-channel, 24-bit bridge/strain module; and four-channel, 24-bit universal module.
NI Single-Board RIO is one of several NI FPGA-based deployment platforms that have the NI reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture, which is composed of a real-time processor, FPGA and I/O modules.
