The NI PXI-7811R digital reconfigurable I/O (RIO) module features a user-programmable FPGA chip for onboard processing and flexible I/O operation. You configure all functionality using NI LabVIEW graphical block diagrams and the LabVIEW FPGA Module. Your block diagram executes in the hardware, giving you direct, immediate control over all I/O signals to deliver high-performance capabilities such as the following:

-Complete control over the synchronization and timing of all signals and operations
-Custom onboard decision making that executes with hardware-timed speed and reliability
-160 digital lines individually configurable as inputs, outputs, counter/timers, PWM, flexible encoder inputs, or specialized communication protocols

With R Series digital RIO devices and LabVIEW FPGA, you can configure user-defined hardware for a wide variety of applications, such as custom digital DAQ, high-speed waveform generation, sensor simulation, hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test, custom digital communications protocols, bit error rate testing, and other applications that require precise timing and control.

Recommended Accessories
The NI SHC68-68-RDIO cable is designed and shielded specifically for the digital I/O connectors on R Series digital RIO devices for improved signal integrity when connected to terminal blocks or the NI 9151 R Series expansion chassis.

Low-Cost, High-Performance Signal Conditioning
The NI 9151 R Series expansion chassis connects directly to any digital connector on R Series devices and houses up to four NI C Series I/O modules for low-cost signal conditioning, I/O channel expansion, and direct connectivity.
