The NI CompactRIO programmable automation controller (PAC) is a low-cost, reconfigurable control and acquisition system designed for applications that require high performance and reliability. The system combines an open embedded architecture with small size, extreme ruggedness, and hot-swappable industrial I/O and communication modules. NI Single-Board RIO devices are low-cost embedded deployment solutions based on CompactRIO. CompactRIO and NI Single-Board RIO are both powered by reconfigurable I/O (RIO) field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology.

PROFIBUS DP communication works with the CompactRIO and NI Single-Board RIO platform via one-port PROFIBUS C Series modules. NI offers two versions of these modules: master/slave and slave only. NI C Series modules connect directly to RIO FPGA devices to create high-performance embedded systems that deliver the optimization and flexibility of a custom electrical circuit completely dedicated to your input/output application. RIO FPGA hardware provides unlimited options for timing, triggering, synchronization, and sensor-level signal processing and decision making.
