Instrument-class I/O

  • 11-Feb-2009 04:47 EST

National Instruments’ FlexRIO family of open hardware offers engineers the company’s LabVIEW technology along with high-speed I/O. Users can add custom signal processing algorithms to PXI-based field-programmable hardware and then use interchangeable adapter modules to interface with instrument-class I/O or to create custom front-end hardware. With these capabilities, they can employ techniques such as inline processing, hardware-in-the-loop simulation, and protocol-aware test required during the design and testing of electronic devices. Features include software programmability at the hardware level, deep onboard memory, and intuitive graphical programming. All NI FlexRIO implementations require a PXI FPGA module and an adapter module, which defines the specific I/O capabilities of the system. The first module delivers 100 MHz of digital I/O through 54 single-ended channels with selectable voltage levels including 1.8, 2.5, and 3.3 V.
