Prototyping Hardware Cuts Development Time and Costs

Forecasting faster prototyping of industrial and embedded projects, reduced time to market, and lower development costs, the company’s suite of prototyping hardware includes five CompactRIO reconfigurable chassis that feature a Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA, allegedly the largest and fastest FPGA available. Additionally, the cRIO-9022 controller features a Freescale 533 MHz industrial real-time processor. The cRIO-911x reconfigurable chassis teams with the LabVIEW FPGA module, enabling users to take advantage of FPGA technology with off-the-shelf hardware without the burden of custom hardware design. The LabVIEW FPGA technology features hundreds of pre-built graphical IP blocks for signal processing, communication protocols, control, and interfacing to analog and digital I/O as well as the ability to integrate existing VHDL code or IP. The cRIO-911x chassis are available with four or eight slots supporting any assortment of more than 65 third-party I/O modules. The cRIO-9022 controller is programmable with the LabVIEW Real-Time Module, which provides more than 600 built-in function blocks. The controller features dual Ethernet ports and accepts 9 to 35 Vdc power-supply inputs on power up and 6- to 35-Vdc inputs during operation. Chassis prices range from $1,299 to $3,299.
