National Instruments' NI PXIe-8115 embedded controller features a dual-core second-generation Intel i5 processor to reduce test times and turbo boost technology to increase the clock frequency based on application type. Suitable for multicore applications, the controller reduces the need for software to be multithreaded to use the latest CPU developments. The flexibility to operate in dual-core or high-performance single-core mode makes the controller suitable for applications including automated test and industrial control. A set of peripheral I/O ports with six USB 2.0 docks minimize the need for external adapters and enable hybrid systems. In-ROM and hard drive diagnostics improve serviceability and minimize downtime. By combining the controller with NI LabVIEW system design software, engineers can improve efficiency in various test, measurement, and control applications.
