Single-Board RIO Application Areas

Smart Machine Control

Developing Smart Tools for the Airbus Factory of the Future

“We evaluated several System on Modules (SOMs) and embedded single board computers (SBCs), and there is no comparison to the software offered by NI. We estimate that our time to deliver with the NI SOM is a tenth of the time using alternative approaches because of the productivity gains of NI’s approach to system design, particularly with NI Linux Real-Time and the LabVIEW FPGA Module.”

Dynapower Reduces Power Converter Development Time With the NI GPIC

“This new platform and method of development changed our development time from 72 weeks to 24 weeks. These tools took design to the next level. We can have a 90 percent confidence factor in a first design and minimize hardware iterations during the prototype stage.”

Condition Monitoring

Oil Well Fracture Pump Monitoring and Analysis Using LabVIEW and NI RIO Technology

“LabVIEW has made the software development side much quicker than our past experiences in C-based programming. What most C programmers take two years to do, we can accomplish in a couple of months. We can use that time savings to get to market quicker and capitalize on our competitors’ lag time.”
