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.
