Embedded: NI shows single-board development platform

National Instruments has introduced four single-board embedded development platforms in its RIO family.

The development board, which is on show at Embedded World this week, contains a processor, Spartan-6 FPGA, analogue and digital I/O and various peripherals for custom embedded control and monitoring applications.

The board can be used as a development platform, and is also cost-effective for production systems in small volumes. 

There is an option for a RIO Mezzanine Card connector which provides access to FPGA digital input/output (DIO) lines and certain processor-specific functions for mating custom daughter cards.

So there is the ability to customise I/O in an off-the-shelf development system.
 
Typical applications are likely to be in monitoring and control applications in industries such as medical and energy.

The four boards offer various memory and peripheral configurations:

NI sbRIO-9623: 256Mbyte of memory, 128Mbyte RAM, 16 channels of 12-bit analogue input, 4 channels of 12-bit analogue output, 4 DIO, 96 RMC DIO

NI sbRIO-9626: 512Mbyte of memory, 256Mbyte RAM, 16 channels of 16-bit analogue input, 4 channels of 16-bit analogue output, 4 DIO, 96 RMC DIO

NI sbRIO-9633: 256Mbyte of memory, 128Mbyte RAM, 16 channels of 12-bit analogue input, 4 channels of 12-bit analogue output, 28 DIO

NI sbRIO-9636: 512Mbyte of memory, 256Mbyte RAM, 16 channels of 16-bit analogue input, 4 channels of 16-bit analogue output, 28 DIO
