Overview
National Instruments CompactRIO is a small rugged industrial control and acquisition system powered by reconfigurable I/O (RIO) FPGA technology for ultrahigh performance and customization. NI CompactRIO incorporates a real-time processor and reconfigurable FPGA for reliable stand-alone embedded or distributed applications, and hot-swappable industrial I/O modules with built-in signal conditioning for direct connection to sensors and actuators. CompactRIO represents a low-cost architecture with open access to low-level hardware resources. CompactRIO embedded systems are developed using high-productivity LabVIEW graphical programming tools for rapid development. With NI CompactRIO, you can rapidly build embedded control or acquisition systems that rival the performance and optimization of custom-designed hardware circuitry.

The CompactRIO platform includes cRIO-9002 and cRIO-9004 real-time controllers with industrial floating-point processors, the cRIO-910x family of 4 and 8-slot reconfigurable chassis featuring 1 million or 3 million gate FPGAs, and a wide variety of I/O types, from
