CompactRIO collaboration

01 December 2006

Three significant names in electronics, Freescale Semiconductor, National Instruments (www.ni.com) and software company Wind River, have collaborated on a CompactRIO controller, designed to enable design engineers to simplify embedded system development using graphical system design. CompactRIO is ahigh-performance, embedded control and acquisition platform, powered by National Instruments’ LabVIEW FPGA and Real-Time.

The NI cRIO-9012 real-time controller is powered with Freescale’s MPC5200 processor, built on Power Architecture and Wind River’s VxWorks RTOS to provide memory and non-volatile disk space, increased
digital signal processing and streaming speeds for logging and networking.

The 400MHz processor is programmed using LabVIEW Real-Time module to provide x4 processing power and x2 lower power consumption. The Freescale processor has an integrated floating point unit for networking, media and automotive applications.
