AUSTIN, Texas, 1 June 2011. National Instruments Corp. in Austin, Texas, is introducing six adapter PXI test and measurement modules with reconfigurable I/O based on field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for general-purpose automated test and measurement, as well as high-speed digital communications. The National Instruments FlexRIO family with the company's LabVIEW FPGA technology with high-speed, I/O. The modules offer four general-purpose digitizers, a module for high-speed digital I/O, and a fast Analog Devices 16-bit analog-to-digital converter.The FlexRIO modules need an I/O-specific adapter module and a PXI FlexRIO FPGA module with a Xilinx Virtex-class FPGA. The modules also integrate with the National Instruments FlexRIO instrument development library of LabVIEW host and FPGA code. The FlexRIO FPGAs can be programmed with LabVIEW software and FPGA Module without VHDL.
The six available modules are the 5762 16-bit, 250 megasample-per-second digitizer with AD9467 A/D converter from Analog Devices; the 6587 16-channel, 1 gigabit-per-second digital I/O module for high-speed LVDS interfaces; the 5731 12-bit, 40 megasample-per-second general-purpose digitizer adapter module; the 5732 14-bit, 80 megasample-per-second general-purpose digitizer adapter module; the 5733 16-bit, 120 megasample-per-second high-resolution digitizer adapter module; and the 5734 16-bit, 120 megasample-per-second, quad-channel, high-resolution digitizer adapter module.
