This guide is intended as complementary material to standard embedded control and monitoring using LabVIEW training. It features documentation and examples as a framework for designing industrial control and monitoring applications.
Take advantage of the onboard FPGA on CompactRIO for applications such as sensor-level signal conditioning, inline filtering, digital protocols, onboard processing, waveform data collection, and mission-critical safety logic.
Chapters 5 and 6 examine:
Data streaming between FPGA and real-time hardware
Expand the CompactRIO architecture to communicate with other systems. Discover how to add expansion I/O, integrate I/O from other devices, and add more advanced functionality such as motion control and machine vision.
Chapters 7 through 10 examine:
Interfacing to NI expansion I/O
Interfacing to third-party devices over industrial protocols
Interfacing to NI touch panels and designing a touch panel HMI
