The PXI-8104 and PXI-8183 embedded controllers from National Instruments (Austin, TX) are suitable for applications including consumer electronics, automotive, semiconductor, telecommunications, aerospace, and defense. The PXI-8104 is an Intel Celeron M 440 processor-based embedded controller for use in PXI and CompactPCI systems. The PXI-8104 controller has a 1.86 GHz processor and dual-channel 533 MHz DDR2 memory.

The PXI-8183 is a twoslot embedded controller that features an 850 MHz Intel Celeron processor and provides a cost-effective and compact platform when combined with a PXIcompatible chassis, such as the NI PXI-1036. The PXI-8104 and PXI-8183 controllers are available in versions that support NI LabVIEW Real-Time and LabWindows™/CVI Real-Time software to deliver a flexible, rugged platform for deterministic and realtime measurement and control. Using PXI-based real-time systems, engineers can leverage powerful processors, high-level software development tools and off-the-shelf PXI I/O modules to quickly create and deploy systems in a variety of applications such as hardware-in-the-loop test, rapid control prototyping, and industrial measurement and control.
