The new cRIO 9068 controller integrates state-of-the-art technologies including the Xilinx Zynq-7020 All Programmable system on a chip (SoC), which combines a dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 processor and Xilinx 7 Series FPGA fabric.
The NI cRIO-9068 combines a dual-core processor, a reconfigurable FPGA, and eight slots for C Series I/O modules within one chassis. Featuring a 667 MHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor running the NI Linux Real-Time OS and an Artix-7 FPGA, this system is well-suited for advanced embedded control and monitoring applications. The cRIO-9068 offers a -40 °C to 70 °C operating temperature range along with dual 9 VDC to 30 VDC power supply inputs for use in applications that demand a rugged and temperature-tolerant controller. The device features 512 MB of DDR3 memory for embedded operation, 1 GB of nonvolatile memory for data logging, and a wide range of connectivity options including two Gigabit Ethernet, one USB Hi-Speed, and three serial ports.
8-slot Artix-7 FPGA chassis for custom I/O timing, control, and processing
NI Linux Real-Time OS
Program the onboard processor with LabVIEW Real-Time or C/C++ and the FPGA with LabVIEW FPGA
2 Gigabit Ethernet, 1 USB Hi-Speed, and 3 serial ports for connectivity
-40 °C to 70 °C operating temperature range
You can use NI LabVIEW system design software to create, debug, and deploy logic to both the onboard FPGA and the processor running the NI Linux Real-Time OS. The LabVIEW environment includes hundreds of prewritten libraries for analysis, control, and logging. C/C++ developers have the option to reuse existing libraries within LabVIEW Real-Time or develop, debug, and deploy C/C++ applications for the onboard processor. Also included are all necessary I/O drivers and middleware for AXI communication between the FPGA and processor as well as network communication libraries to develop the entire system software with a single tool: LabVIEW.
The ruggedness and temperature range make the cRIO-9068 well-suited for high-volume and OEM applications in harsh environments. OEM discounting is available.
