Machine & Embedded Control — PACs, IPCs: The NI SOM combines an FPGA, a complete middleware solution, and Linux Real-Time into one integrated device. Combining software, FPGA programming, and prototyping capabilities significantly reduces development timeThe NI sbRIO-9651 System on Module (SOM) is a leading technology that plays a critical role in shaping the future of embedded design. The NI SOM has already made an impact for OEMs in a variety of industries such as aerospace and life sciences. In fact, one customer estimates that with the NI SOM, their development costs for smart tools are a tenth of the cost of alternative approaches.

The NI SOM provides a complete middleware solution out of the box, significantly reducing development time and the costly risks associated with customizable software components. With this technology, design teams can develop flexible solutions by using LabVIEW FPGA and a Linux Real-Time OS. Specifically, the NI SOM works seamlessly with the LabVIEW FPGA graphical development platform, which makes it possible for users to customize hardware without low-level programming expertise. Additionally, it features a Linux Real-Time OS, which provides users with a vast community of applications and IP. Using this technology, design teams can quickly prototype their applications with CompactRIO hardware and then deploy them with the NI SOM by reusing the majority of the same code.

Built on the LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture, the NI SOM combines the power of real-time performance with FPGA customizability and a Linux OS that enables design teams to regain control of their applications. With this technology, design teams can tackle challenges across a variety of industries with less risk and lower cost than custom design, making it possible to focus on high-value tasks.
