CompactRIO features a powerful heterogeneous computing architecture along with customizable IO using C Series modules in a small, rugged form factor. In order to extend the C Series module offering even further to meet industry specific needs or requirements, the module development kit (MDK) allows third party developers to create custom modules.
Below you will find qualified CompactRIO modules with ready-made hardware and driver software. If your application requires a custom I/O module with unique or specialized signal types, contact one of these suppliers and they will design a module to your exact needs. Alternatively, the CompactRIO Module Development Kit (NI cRIO-9951) provides the tools needed for designing your own custom module.
