National Instruments’ NI VeriStand 2010 features enhancements that expand its capabilities for hardware-in-the-loop and real-time testing by supporting high-performance, multiple-chassis PXI systems and low-cost, ruggedized options using NI CompactRIO and NI Single-Board RIO hardware deployments. The software update also offers enhanced connectivity with NI LabVIEW, making it easier for engineers to re-use existing software and further customize their NI VeriStand applications. NI VeriStand 2010 adds native support for reflective memory interfaces to deterministically share data between real-time PXI systems for high-performance applications such as electronic systems integration test systems and iron bird aircraft simulators. More specifically, it can automatically create the reflective memory routings between PXI systems, reducing the potential for development errors and helping engineers quickly get their applications up and running. NI VeriStand 2010 also provides system-level abstraction and user-interface capabilities to make configuring such systems more efficient.
