FlexRIO instruments combine large, user-programmable FPGAs and high-performance analog, digital, and RF I/O to offer the flexibility of custom hardware without the cost of custom design.

Automated Test Bench for High-Resolution Audio Test

DOLPHIN INTEGRATION designed a test bench for an automated high-resolution audio codec that integrates analog-to-digital converters and digital-to-analog multichannel converters, based on NI PXI instruments to multiplex analog signals, generate and acquire analog and digital signals, and control components via I2C bus.

D-VASim: A Software Tool to Simulate and Analyze Genetic Logic Circuits

The TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF DENMARK created a software tool for the simulation and analysis of genetic logic circuits to help researchers performing wet lab experiments virtually, because the manual process of wet lab experimentation of genetic logic circuits is time consuming and a challenging task for early-stage researchers with limited experience in the field of biology. They used LabVIEW to develop a user-friendly simulation tool named Dynamic Virtual Analyzer and Simulator (D-VASim), which is the first software tool in the domain of synthetic biology that provides a virtual laboratory environment to perform run-time interactive simulation and analysis of genetic logic circuits.

Furuno Electric Co. Uses Cadence AWR Design Environment and NI FlexRIO Platform to Develop Weather Radar in 40 Percent Less Time

FURUNO wanted to develop a weather radar with flexibility in the signal processing unit to accommodate various potential design changes and incorporate a way to verify the system-level performance by co-simulating the digital and analog sections. They adopted the NI FlexRIO platform for digital section hardware, using graphical system design methodology to accommodate potential design changes in the software, and taking advantage of the co-simulation capability between AWR Visual System Simulator (VSS) and NI LabVIEW software to realize the system-level simulation of digital and analog sections together.
