Munich, Germany (Manufacturing.net) — National Instruments today announced for new R Series boards with USB connectivity, which the company says helps engineers add FPGA technology to any PC-based system using one of the most popular buses on the market. All of these products (USB-7855R, USB-7856R, USB-7855R OEM and USB-7856R OEM) are based on the LabVIEW RIO architecture. The company says these systems are an integral part of its graphical system design platform, which results in higher-quality designs with the ability to incorporate customizations. Additional features of the platform include:
- The Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA, which helps engineers implement tasks like custom timing and triggering, synchronization, multirate sampling and high-speed control.
- Analog input and analog output rates of up to 1 MHz for closed-loop control tasks, plus digital I/O rates up to 80 MHz.
- The ability to select logic levels from 1.2 to 3.3V.
- Selectable gain for analog input ranges, which means more resolution and lower voltages.
