Embedded Hardware Systems and Software
The NI LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) platform provides the best off-the-shelf platform to solve any demanding control and monitoring task. This NI platform-based approach gives small teams the confidence to build innovative embedded systems without wasting development time and cost on custom design.
System Design Software
LabVIEW is the only system design software that delivers an entire toolchain for developing measurement and control applications. With tight hardware integration, the NI graphical system design approach increases innovation, enhances productivity, and reduces time to market.
System Design Add-Ons
LabVIEW FPGA Module
The LabVIEW FPGA Module extends the LabVIEW graphical development platform to target FPGAs on RIO hardware.
LabVIEW Real-Time Module
The LabVIEW Real-Time Module is a complete graphical programming solution for creating reliable, deterministic, stand-alone embedded systems.
From image acquisition and precision inspection to customized sorting and autonomous guidance, NI vision systems deliver an integrated hardware and software solution that helps you develop applications faster and at a lower cost.
Create complete wired and wireless monitoring and control systems with the NI wireless sensor network platform, which features reliable, battery-powered measurement nodes that offer industrial ratings and local analysis and control capabilities.
