The NI-VAS (Vision Acquisition Software) from National Instruments is designed to acquire, display, and save images from image acquisition devices. The software can also be used to configure and control National Instruments image devices with the supplied NI-IMAQ driver software.
National Instruments produces a full suite of power supplies, ideal for any situation, from PC based systems to programmable PXI modules. At Apex Waves, we can supply a range of obsolete and mature parts, including National Instruments Industrial Power Supplies and National Instruments PXI Power Supplies.
If you are looking for the most advanced multifunction data acquisition (DAQ) devices on the market, then the National Instruments X Series may be perfect. They are designed to meet the most demanding test and measurement applications and offer a vast range of features.
The National Instruments R Series consists of Multifunction Reconfigurable I/O (RIO) Devices and Digital RIO Devices which have the capability to control I/O signals and deliver an FPGA that can be programmed by the user for onboard signal processing and versatile system synchronization and timing. With the NI RIO technology, users can define customized measurement hardware circuitry by utilizing reconfigurable FPGA chips and National Instruments LabVIEW tools. The R Series National Instruments Multifunction RIO Devices are available in form factors such as PXI/CompactPCI, PCI, PCI Express, and USB. All of these devices can be used with the NI-RIO driver software, but they are not compatible with NI-DAQmx or NI-DAQmx Base.
Drones are autonomous flying vehicles that have a lot of potential to help the technological advancement of Africa. Drones are known to be used generally for high photographic shots, surveillance coverage, and weapons delivery for military purposes.
As mentioned in the National Instruments PXI Chassis Part 1 Blog Post, NI PXI Chassis have many beneficial features. A feature not yet discussed is the timing and synchronization capabilities of these models. PXI Chassis have a 10 MHz system reference clock, star trigger bus, slot-to-slot local bus, and a PXI trigger bus. Furthermore, PXI Express Chassis also have a 100 MHz differential system clock, differential star triggers, and differential signaling. The system reference clocks can phase-lock-loop or PLL to a higher stability clock source than that which is offered on the backplane of the chassis. The result is that PXI modules with higher sample rates can better align their samples across numerous devices.
The National Instruments PXI Chassis are designed for measurement and automation applications, hold PXI modules, and link the modules with a high-performance backplane that provides synchronization and timing features. PXI Chassis deliver cooling, power, and a communication bus for I/O modules or modular devices. These modules can be controlled from an external PC or an embedded controller, with any of National Instruments software tools. These Chassis are compatible with PXI hybrid, PXI Express, and PXI modules.
