National Instruments programmable FPGA digital instruments feature a variety of adapter modules with different clock rates and logic levels. The modules, which include high-performance Xilinx field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), allow these digital instruments to be used for
- protocol testing on the data link layer
- general purpose digital interfacing with the capability to tweak the data patterns on the fly
- custom triggering
- real - time digital comparison and processing
and many other applications that were not feasible before. With the modular PXI platform, you can scale from just a few channels to hundreds, and you can integrate a variety of other instruments depending on your application needs.
