Note: NI does not recommend sbRIO-9602/9602XT devices for new designs; use the sbRIO-9607 instead.

The sbRIO-9602/9602XT embedded control and acquisition devices integrate a real-time processor, a user-reconfigurable FPGA, and I/O on a single printed circuit board. They feature a 400 MHz industrial processor, a 2M gate Xilinx Spartan FPGA, and 110 3.3 V (5 V tolerant/TTL compatible) digital I/O lines. They also have three connectors for expansion I/O using board-level NI C Series I/O modules. The sbRIO-9602 offers a -20 °C to 55 °C operating temperature range, while the sbRIO-9602XT provides an extended temperature range of -40 °C to 85 °C. Both models include a 19 VDC to 30 VDC power supply input range, 128 MB of DRAM for embedded operation, and 256 MB of nonvolatile memory for storing programs and data logging.

These devices feature a built-in 10/100 Mb/s Ethernet port you can use to conduct programmatic communication over the network and host built-in web (HTTP) and file (FTP) servers. You can use the RS232 serial port to control peripheral devices.

The sbRIO-9602/9602XT devices are designed to be easily embedded in high-volume applications that require flexibility, reliability, and high performance. Single-Board RIO is sold only in OEM quantities. CompactRIO systems are ideal for low- to medium-volume applications and rapid prototyping.
