NI offers hardware and software products for use with a variety of Linux distributions and versions. The products span both desktop and embedded use cases and address the needs of those using Linux across academia and industry.
Build Rugged, Real-Time Linux Systems
NI created the NI Linux Real-Time OS, a new Linux distribution with industrial-grade, real-time capabilities. Intended for embedded systems, it offers real-time performance with the approachability and usability of a desktop OS. The NI Linux Real-Time OS is fully supported by the LabVIEW Real-Time Module.
NI real-time hardware and software work seamlessly to run applications reliably and deterministically with precise timing. NI real-time development tools provide all necessary real-time OS (RTOS) software, including a Linux option.
See how a CompactRIO controller and Proclucid DataFabric software built with LabVIEW allows utilities and power providers to quickly and cost-effectively deploy modular MicroGrid solutions.
NI Linux Real-Time Community
For those more familiar with Linux and looking to take advantage of the benefits of Linux alongside a LabVIEW Real-Time application, the NI Linux Real-Time Community offers practical how-to documentation and a forum for questions specifically about this OS.
