Reconfigurable I/O modules for automated test

24 July 2013 Test & Measurement

National Instruments has expanded its FlexRIO product family, built on FPGA-based reconfigurable I/O (RIO), to more than 20 modules. Six new adaptor modules add I/O including digitiser, signal generation and IF and RF transceiver capabilities.

Engineers can pair these NI FlexRIO adaptor modules with user-programmable FPGAs to solve almost any test application, from real-time spectrum monitoring and RF modulation/demodulation to signal intelligence and RF communication protocol prototyping.

Because these modules benefit from the parallelism and dataflow programming of the LabVIEW RIO architecture, they can be easily targeted by engineers without VHDL or Verilog knowledge. The combination of FlexRIO, LabVIEW system design software and access to more than 600 NI PXI modular instruments gives engineers a commercial off-the-shelf solution that can be customised using FPGA technology.
