An OEM evaluation bundle of software and hardware, from National Instruments and QNX Software Systems eases the development of embedded devices that require measurement-quality analog I/O. The new bundle features a low-cost USB data acquisition device from NI, a single-board computer and drivers as well as evaluation versions of the QNX® Momentics® development suite and the NI LabView software development kit. The bundle lets you quickly incorporate data acquisition hardware into embedded designs.
Almost all embedded systems involve some degree of analog-to-digital conversion. More precision can greatly increase the complexity of embedded development. The evaluation bundle benefits OEMs using the QNX Momentics IDE and QNX Neutrino® RTOS.
The bundle contains a Power Architecture-based single-board computer with up to 400 MHz of processing power and an NI USB-6009 data acquisition device for analog and digital I/O in a low-cost, off-the-shelf unit. The USB-6009 offers eight analog inputs with 14-bit resolution and a 48 kS/s sampling rate and two analog outputs with 12-bit resolution and a 150 kS/s sampling rate for acquiring and generating signals. The NI Measurement Hardware driver development kit includes development tools and a register-level programming interface for controlling the NI data acquisition hardware.
