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.
The Electronic Design Specialty recognizes partners with specialized skills in custom electronics for embedded control and monitoring systems. These partners provide consulting services, electronic hardware design, NI LabVIEW Real-Time and FPGA software development, and manufacturing services. The specialty identifies experts for customers looking to extend and customize NI hardware enabled by the LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture - including NI CompactRIO, NI Single-Board RIO, and NI FlexRIO - to meet their application needs through custom electronics.
The Embedded Control Specialty recognizes partners with demonstrated architect-level proficiency with NI LabVIEW software and the LabVIEW Real-Time and LabVIEW FPGA modules. They also have proven success with a qualified number of embedded control and monitoring applications and have expertise in designing applications that require deterministic closed-loop control. In addition, they are skilled in using FPGA technologies, ensuring that designs are maximized for performance and reliability.
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.
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.
