The ARINC 664 test instrument is delivered with a LabVIEW instrument driver providing an intuitive and easy to use interface for development of test applications for LabVIEW Real-Time
. Software drivers and C/C++ API's are also available for Windows XP/7 and Linux.
"NI-XNET interfaces combine the performance of low-level microcontroller programming with the speed and power of Windows and LabVIEW Real-Time
OS development," he explained.
It combines an NI LabView Real-Time
controller and an integrated WSN radio so that LabView Real-Time
applications can run locally on the gateway to aggregate data from WSN devices.
It can be used as a standalone module or with the LabView Real-Time
Module to program real-time applications.
The solution: using LabVIEW, the LabVIEW Real-Time
Module, the LabVIEW FPGA (field programmable gate array) Module, and NI SoftMotion software with NI R Series reconfigurable I/O hardware for PXI, all from National Instruments, Austin, Texas, to develop an FPGA-based motion control system capable of intercepting misguided or unstable particle beams.
"Many of our customers work in industrial machine control, automotive test and design, mechanical, research laboratories and other engineering and scientific areas," said Shelley Gretlein, LabVIEW Real-Time
and Embedded Group Manager at National Instruments.
By combining NI-Motion 6.0 with a proprietary PXI or CompactPCI motion system comprised of a PXI chassis, LabVIEW Real-Time
, a real-time PXI controller and a PXI motion module, engineers can remotely configure and test their motion control applications as well as create stand-atone distributed systems that require minimal user interaction.
Operating system options for the PXI controller include Windows, Linux, and LabVIEW Real-Time
. This helps the design engineer choose a controller with the operating system best suited tot a particular control application.
The LabVIEW Real-Time
custom software application automatically starts when power is applied to the CSU.
Controller options include remote controllers from a desktop, workstation, server, or a laptop PC, and high-performance embedded controllers with either a Microsoft operating system or a real-time OS, such as NI's LabVIEW Real-Time
