With the NI Single-Board RIO GPIC, you can bring grid-tied power electronic systems to market with significantly lower cost and risk. The FPGA-based system is designed to meet the cost, I/O, and performance needs of most high-volume commercial power electronics control applications, including DC-to-AC, AC-to-DC, DC-to-DC, and AC-to-AC converters for smart-grid flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS), renewable energy generation, energy storage, and variable speed drive applications. It is programmed using a comprehensive NI LabVIEW graphical system design toolchain that includes simulation. Here are a few other benefits you receive:
Save an average of 114 person-months per design and complete your development in half the time with a team that is 60 percent smaller.
Develop your proprietary FPGA-based control algorithms without any knowledge of Verilog and VHDL using LabVIEW graphical programming and a high-fidelity power electronics circuit simulation environment.
Gain the competitive advantage of using cutting-edge Xilinx FPGA technology that outperforms typical dual-core digital signal processors (DSPs) performance by a factor of 40X per dollar, 24X per chip, and 10X per watt.
Add smart-grid network communication, power quality analysis, and local or cloud-based data logging using the onboard real-time VxWorks processor.
