Design On Time


Programmable for All Skill Levels
Students can complete a project in one semester no matter their major or programming experience. NI myRIO harnesses the power of FPGA programming with LabVIEW software and provides the option to program the processor in either LabVIEW or C/C++. Students can program at their current experience level and graduate to more complexity as they grow comfortable.

Compatible and Expandable

Students gain experience on one, expandable platform with the ability to scale their learning and create more sophisticated projects in a shorter amount of time. Using both new and existing sensors and actuators, NI myRIO gives educators and students the ability to reuse the device from project to project and semester to semester.
