Custom I/O modules

Engineers now can extend the National Instruments CompactRIO reconfigurable embedded system platform by creating their own custom I/O modules for applications requiring unique and specialized I/O signal types.

By using National Instruments’ CompactRIO Module Development Kit, embedded system developers can access the low-level electrical architecture of their CompactRIO systems and design unique I/O, communication or control modules.

They then can use NI LabVIEW to program the CompactRIO reconfigurable FPGA chipset to communicate with their new custom module circuitry at rates exceeding 40 million bits per second.

CompactRIO is a small industrial control and acquisition system that can be customised for embedded control and measurement by the user.

The CompactRIO Module Development Kit delivers all the tools engineers need to build a customized module, including custom CompactRIO module development software, the CompactRIO Module Development Kit user manual and the licensed right to develop and manufacture custom CompactRIO I/O modules.

The CompactRIO Module Development Kit also includes a set of CompactRIO module housings with a variety of connector options.
