National Instruments has released NI Trend Watch 2014, which summarises the latest technology trends to help engineers meet evolving demands and integrate the ever-increasing power of technology into their work. The inaugural report examines a range of topics — from cyber-physical systems to the ‘SDR-ification’ of radio-frequency instruments.
Vehicle Projects has engineered a control system for the fuel cell using a CompactRIO embedded controller and Labview graphical design software from National Instruments.
National Instruments has announced that it will host its 2014 NI Technical Symposium — a free, one-day professional development series for engineers and scientists — across three locations in February 2014.
Wireless PANs (WPANs) consist of short-range, low-data-rate communication between wireless devices. Well-known examples of WPANs include Bluetooth (802.15.3) and Zigbee (802.15.4). Bluetooth is already a popular technology employed in several consumer electronics devices for the quick transfer of small amounts of data. Zigbee is a low-rate WPAN standard that is now being used more widely for applications such as sensor networks, remote control and home/building automation. According ...
CompactRIO and the Labview FPGA module from National Instruments (NI) have been used to develop a real-time solar cell measurement and control system.
