Hardware products for National Instruments embedded systems share a common architecture that includes three components: an embedded controller for communication and processing; an FPGA for advanced control, timing, signal processing, filtering, and custom protocols; and industrial I/O modules for connectivity to any sensor or device. All of the components are reconfigurable through a single software toolchain.
Maximize value with a rugged, reliable form factor and modular I/O.
Maximize flexibility with a small form factor and customizable I/O.
Maximize performance with analog and digital I/O using standard PC form factors.
