1. Industry Standards
Building a technology product based on industry standards leads to lower development and maintenance costs now and in the future. At NI, we know this is important to our customers, and we actively drive and participate in the development of open industry standards.
2. Product Life-Cycle Management
NI works hard to choose components and technologies with long and stable roadmaps so we can continue to manufacture most board-level products for five to 10 years with little or no modification. We have a formal new product introduction program to sustain products from cradle to grave and to back up new products with a five-year guarantee.
3. High-Reliability Design
Extensive embedded system design experience, conservative component rating, and thorough R&D testing contribute to our extremely reliable products. Our products have an outstanding track record and impressive mean time between failure (MTBF) ratings.
4. Long-Term Software Compatibility
NI is committed to providing the latest technologies while maintaining compatibility for previous generations so OEMs can retain their solutions over many years. To achieve these long-term solutions, NI offers world-class hardware drivers that feature standard application programming interfaces (APIs) to ensure compatibility and scalability as computers, networks, and operating systems advance.
