At NI Days 2013, National Instruments India showcased a programmable hardware device, NI myRIO, for students. The embedded hardware device help students design real, complex engineering systems more quickly and affordably than ever before, said the company.

Based on the same technology as the popular NI CompactRIO platform, NI myRIO is smaller and more student-friendly than its industrial counterpart. myRIO includes the latest Zynq all programmable system on a chip (SoC) technology from Xilinx, which combines a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and an FPGA with 28,000 programmable logic cells.

Using the power of the NI LabVIEW graphical programming environment, which enables engineers to code-control physical instruments and collect data from them, students can programme the FPGA and evolve their systems in real time, giving them the flexibility to prototype and quickly iterate on their designs.

Available in the US for $250 for students, the device is yet to reach colleges and sales channels in India as the company is working on making it affordable for emerging economies. The instrument would soon be commercially available.

LabVIEW 2013, NI cRIO-9068 Controller

The company also announced the launch of LabVIEW 2013 and NI cRIO-9068 Controller during the event.

LabVIEW 2013 facilitates the management, documentation and debugging of increasingly complex systems. LabVIEW 2013 adds support for the Linux Real-Time OS, giving developers access to dynamic, community-sourced libraries.

"LabVIEW 2013 focuses on three primary areas: integrating access to the latest technologies that make systems better, enhancing the environment so developers are more efficient, and providing access to an ecosystem of training and partner tools," the company said.

While, the new NI cRIO-9068 software-designed controller, based on the NI LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture, features an all-new design for the next embedded control and monitoring application.

NI Days 2013, held in Bangalore, saw nearly 1,000 engineers, researchers and scientists join at the annual showcase of NI solutions and Indian innovation in virtual instrumentation and embedded systems.

“NIDays 2013 has brought together LabVIEW developers from all over India to share best practices. With the large pool of knowledge that we have in India, NI’s open platform provides an opportunity to quickly bring ideas to reality and, through the LabVIEW Tools Network, gain market access around the world," said Jayaram Pillai, Managing Director, NI (India, Russia and Arabia).
