Courtesy: National InstrumentsNational Instruments' (Nasdaq: NATI), CompactRIO software-designed controller integrates embedded technologies from Intel and Xilinx and is supported by LabVIEW 2014 and NI Linux Real-Time. It is ideal for advanced control and applications in harsh, industrial environments. It also provides processing, custom timing and triggering, and data transfer from modular C Series I/O.

LabVIEW 2014 with NI Linux Real-Time support lets engineers and scientists use a single, familiar development environment to continue developing their system while taking immediate advantage of increased CompactRIO hardware performance.

Features include the Intel Atom Processor and the Kintex-7 FPGA. It also has an embedded UI, which allows the user to implement a local HMI device and use the control system to handle HMI tasks, cutting component costs as well as development and integration time. It also lets the user add USB3 or GigE Vision cameras using NI Linux Real-Time, integrate vision acquisition directly into an application, and use new Vision IP to turn the FPGA into a high-performance vision coprocessor.
