System on Module cuts time, risk of systems design

Keywords:SOM  LabVIEW  RIO 

The sbRIO-9651 System on Module (SOM) developed by National Instruments combines the Xilinx Zynq All Programmable system on a chip (SoC) with supporting components such as memory on a small PCB and features a complete middleware solution and ready-to-go Linux-based real-time operating system (RTOS) already integrated. The NI SOM gives design teams the customisability of a SOM without the increased time and risk of developing custom software.

"We estimate that our development costs with the NI SOM are a tenth of the costs of alternative approaches because of the productivity gains of NI's approach to system design, in particular to NI Linux Real-Time and LabVIEW FPGA," said Sebastien Boria, R&D mechatronics technology leader at Airbus.

The NI SOM enables design teams to deploy reliable, complex embedded systems faster because it is based on and has the same rigorous design standards as the LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture. This architecture has already been used in high-reliability applications such as unmanned aerial vehicles and cataract surgery machines.

"Today's embedded monitoring and control applications are more complex than ever before, and tighter deadlines and rising costs only increase stress for system designers," said Jamie Smith, director of embedded systems marketing at NI. "Studies show that design teams using the LabVIEW RIO architecture can solve complex embedded problems in half the time compared with traditional custom design approaches."
