National Instruments (Austin, TX) now offers NI Single- Board RIO devices for deploying embedded control and data acquisition applications. The eight sbRIO- 96xx devices combine an embedded real-time processor, reconfigurable field-protgrammable gate array (FPGA), and analog and digital I/O on a single printed circuit board (PCB). They are suitable for applications that require flexibility, high performance, and reliability in a small form factor.

ImageNI Single-Board RIO devices feature an industrial 266 MHz or 400 MHz Freescale MPC5200 processor built on Power Architecture technology, the Wind River VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS), and Xilinx Spartan-3 FPGA. The onboard analog and digital I/O connects directly to the FPGA to provide low-level customization of timing and I/O signal processing. Users also can expand the I/O capabilities using the devices' three expansion slots for connecting any NI C-Series I/O module or custom modules that they develop. There are more than 40 C Series modules for I/O and communication such as acceleration, temperature, power quality, controller-area network (CAN), and motion.
