An Alliance Partner specialty distinguishes a company as an expert with a specific NI product platform. Silver, Gold, and Platinum Alliance Partners can apply for a specialty. When working with a specialty partner, you can be sure they strategically align with NI’s business, undergo a rigorous application process, obtain top certifications in a specified industry, and complete projects with professionalism and in a timely manner.
As experts in education, Education Specialty Alliance Partners are proficient in implementing courseware and designing custom teaching material based on education technologies like LabVIEW, NI Multisim, the NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS), and NI myDAQ. Whether customers need customized courseware, adaption of legacy content for NI teaching technologies, or custom LabVIEW development for learning, they can count an education partner to implement solutions that meet their project, lab, or classroom needs.
The Embedded Specialty recognizes partners with proven success in designing medium- to large-scale embedded control and monitoring applications. They design applications that require deterministic closed-loop control and ensure that these designs are maximized for performance and reliability. With Certified LabVIEW Embedded Developers on staff, these partners have demonstrated architect-level proficiency with LabVIEW software and the LabVIEW Real-Time and LabVIEW FPGA modules. This specialty identifies experts for customers looking to extend and customize NI hardware enabled by the LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture including CompactRIO, Single-Board RIO, and FlexRIO.
The Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Specialty recognizes partners with specialized skills and domain knowledge to provide HIL solutions and services to industry leading companies in areas such as automotive, aerospace, and power systems. These partners drive standardization of common hardware and software component HIL systems by leveraging National Instruments Platforms and Architectures. Customers can have high confidence that our HIL specialty partners will help them choose the best COTS and custom solutions in order to fully satisfy even the most demanding application requirements, including hardware and software integration as well as electronic design and embedded solutions.
The RF and Wireless Specialty recognizes partners who help customers build fast, flexible, and accurate RF and wireless test systems based on the NI modular software-defined architecture of RF products, LabVIEW software, and NI FlexRIO. These systems range from individual RF instrument software personalities to custom advanced test systems. The RF and Wireless Specialty identifies system integrator companies for customers looking to benefit from the NI modular instrumentation platform to meet their application needs, such as 2G, 3G, LTE, MIMO, WiMAX, WLAN, and record and playback.
The Vision Specialty includes partners with experience in a range of industries, including consumer goods, food and beverage, pharmaceutics, robotics, electronics, automotive, semiconductor, and medical imaging. These partners are skilled with NI products, actively undertake vision projects, and maintain dedicated expertise in vision. National Instruments reviews the capabilities of each Vision Specialty Alliance Partner, and requires that these partners obtain the AIA System Integration Company Certification.
