The NI PXI-8109 RT is a high-performance Intel Core i7-620M-based embedded controller for use in PXI and CompactPCI systems. With the 2.66 GHz base frequency, 3.33 GHz (single-core Turbo Boost) dual-core processor, and dual-channel 1066 MHz DDR3 memory, the PXI-8109 RT is ideal for processor-intensive, deterministic modular instrumentation, and data acquisition real-time applications. You can develop your application with the LabVIEW Real-Time Module or LabWindows™/CVI Real-Time Module on Windows and download the program to your PXI-8109 RT controller via Ethernet. The embedded code executes on a real-time OS, so you can use the powerful and flexible development tools of LabVIEW or LabWindows/CVI to build reliable, real-time solutions.
Connect to Any I/O
The modularity of PXI and open development environment of LabVIEW make it easy to integrate a variety of I/O in your application. Create a custom real-time embedded solution using a PXI-8109 RT embedded controller with any number and combination of PXI/CompactPCI plug-in modules.
Run Parallel Tasks on Separate Processor Cores
The LabVIEW Real-Time Module takes advantage of the dual cores on the Intel processor to increase performance and determinism for large, real-time test and control applications. You can either explicitly assign certain tasks to run on specific cores of the processor or let the real-time OS manage this assignment for you.
To improve the serviceability of the PXI-8109 RT, you can quickly access in-ROM diagnostics for the hard drive and memory without requiring external third-party tools. By running these diagnostics, you can determine if you need to replace the hard drive or memory. The controller design allows for quick field replacement of critical components such as the hard drive and the memory without affecting the warranty. To ease the process of purchasing spare components, hard drive and memory upgrades are available with the PXI-8109 RT. Combining all these features significantly improves PXI-8109 RT serviceability.
