FlexRIO FPGA adapter modules extends PXI software-defined instrumentation

National Instruments has added four new adapter modules to its NI FlexRIO product family which provides FPGA-based reconfigurable I/O (RIO) for PXI systems, using the LabVIEW FPGA Module software.

The user-configurable NI FlexRIO product family takes advantage of PXI hardware and software integration to give engineers a commercial off-the-shelf solution that is specifically designed to implement FPGA technology for advanced automated test and measurement systems.

NI FlexRIO solutions combine two distinct hardware components, a programmable PXI or PXI Express-based FPGA module and an I/O adapter module. The four additional NI FlexRIO adapter modules are suitable for real-time measurements, nondestructive test (NDT) and ultrasound applications, communications systems and scientific research.

The modules are the:

  • NI 5761: four-channel, 14-bit, 250 MS/s broadband high-performance digitizer adapter module designed to meet a wide range of signal processing application needs including communications system design, intermediate frequency (IF) acquisition, multiple input, multiple output (MIMO), radar and scientific research;
  • NI 5751: 16-channel, 50 MS/s, 14-bit digitizer adapter module for test and measurement in areas such as experimental physics, NDT and medical imaging;
  • NI 5752: 32-channel, 50 MS/s, 12-bit digitizer adapter module optimized for NDT and ultrasound applications; includes AC-coupled differential inputs with integrated VGAs and time-varying gain curves, as well as 16 digital outputs for pulser stimulus;
  • NI 6583: 32 single-ended and 16 LVDS/mLVDS channels, digital adapter module with data rates up to 300 Mbit/s for test and communication requiring mixed digital logic.

Engineers can control and reconfigure the FPGA on the NI FlexRIO host module using the LabVIEW FPGA software.

The adapter modules join a portfolio of more than 400 NI PXI software-defined hardware products for automated test. Engineers can combine all NI FlexRIO products with the more than 1,500 PXI instruments from NI and more than 50 other vendors to address the requirements of practically any test application.
