Software designed controller simplifies control systems

National Instruments has announced the CompactRIO performance controller. The software designed unit integrates the latest embedded technologies from Intel and Xilinx and is fully supported by LabVIEW 2014 and NI Linux Real-Time.

NI says the CompactRIO is ideal for advanced control and applications in harsh, industrial environments and provides high performance processing, custom timing and triggering, as well as data transfer from modular C Series I/O.

"The LabVIEW RIO architecture breaks the barriers of traditional embedded system design and provides the best off the shelf platform to solve any demanding control and monitoring task," said Jamie Smith, director of embedded systems at NI. "Our platform based approach gives small design teams the confidence to build innovative embedded systems without wasting development time and cost."

Key features include a Kintex-7 PFGA, Intel Atom processor, embedded UI and improved vision integration.
