National Instruments is announcing four new R Series boards (USB-7855R, USB-7856R, USB-7855R OEM and USB-7856R OEM) with USB connectivity, which help engineers add FPGA technology to any PC-based system using one of the most widely adopted buses on the market. These products, based on the LabVIEW RIO architecture, are a result of the company’s continued investment in the R Series product family.
The LabVIEW RIO architecture is an integral part of the NI graphical system design platform. A modern approach to designing, prototyping and deploying embedded monitoring and control systems, graphical system design combines the open NI LabVIEW graphical programming environment with commercial off-the-shelf hardware to simplify development, which results in higher-quality designs with the ability to incorporate custom design.
Jamie Smith, Director of Embedded Systems Marketing at National Instruments, says: “Using these new USB R Series devices, engineers and scientists can create highly customisable measurement and control systems using standard PC technology. They are ideal for high-performance medical, life science and semiconductor machines.”
- Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA: Implement tasks like custom timing and triggering, synchronisation, multirate sampling, high-speed control and onboard signal processing
- Improved I/O: Take advantage of analogue input and analogue output rates of up to 1MHz for closed-loop control tasks, as well as digital I/O (DIO) rates of up to 80MHz
- Selectable logic levels from 1.2 to 3.3 V: Adjust DIO levels to meet specific application requirements
- Selectable gain for analogue input ranges: Get more resolution at lower voltage ranges
- OEM options available: Get the same power in a board-only form factor with the flexibility to create your own I/O interface
