NI sbRIO-9642/9642XT embedded control and acquisition devices integrate a real-time processor, a user-reconfigurable field-programmable gate array (FPGA), and I/O on a single printed circuit board (PCB). They feature a 400 MHz industrial processor, a 2M gate Xilinx Spartan FPGA, 110 3.3 V (5 V tolerant/TTL compatible) digital I/O lines, 32 single-ended/16 differential 16-bit analog input channels at 250 kS/s, four 16-bit analog output channels at 100 kS/s, and 32 industrial 24 V DI/DO lines. They also have three connectors for expansion I/O using board-level NI C Series I/O modules. The sbRIO-9642 offers a -20 to 55 °C operating temperature range, while the sbRIO-9642XT provides an extended temperature range of -40 to 85 °C. Both models include a 19 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 Mbits/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.
NI sbRIO-9642/9642XT devices are designed to be easily embedded in high-volume applications that require flexibility, reliability, and high performance. NI Single-Board RIO is sold only in OEM quantities. NI CompactRIO systems are ideal for low- to medium-volume applications and rapid prototyping.
