Austin, Tex. National Instruments and QNX Software Systems have announced an OEM evaluation bundle of software and hardware for engineers and scientists using graphical system design to create embedded devices that require measurement-quality analog I/O. The new hardware/software bundle features a low-cost USB data acquisition device from NI, a single-board computer and drivers as well as evaluation versions of the QNX Momentics development suite and the NI LabVIEW Microprocessor SDK (Software Development Kit).
The OEM bundle contains a Power Architecture-based single-board computer with up to 400 MHz of processing power and an NI USB-6009 data acquisition device that provides analog and digital I/O in a low-cost, off-the-shelf unit. The USB-6009 offers eight analog inputs with 14-bit resolution and a 48 kS/s sampling rate and two analog outputs with 12-bit resolution and a 150 kS/s sampling rate for acquiring and generating signals. The included NI Measurement Hardware DDK (Driver Development Kit) features development tools and a register-level programming interface for controlling the NI data acquisition hardware.
Because the bundle is shipped with evaluation versions of the QNX Momentics development suite and the LabVIEW Microprocessor SDK, users can develop their applications using either NI LabVIEW graphical code or C/C++ code, said NI.
