Lower the Cost of Test System Development and Ownership

National Instruments’ hardware-in-the-loop platform increases testing flexibility

National InstrumentsNational Instruments transforms the way engineers and scientists around the world design, prototype, and deploy systems for test, control and embedded design. More than 30,000 companies around the world use National Instruments tools to simplify development, increase productivity, and dramatically reduce time to market. 

National InstrumentsThe diverging challenges of faster time to market, greater reliability, and increasing product complexity necessitate a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test platform that provides:

  • Efficiency in development and maintenance
  • Scalability to meet diverse and rapidly changing requirements
  • Innovation to deliver the latest advances in technology to your applications

The NI HIL platform provides these necessities for success through a truly open hardware and software platform; the greatest variety, value, and availability of products; industry-leading real-time multicore and FPGA technology; global services, support, and partner expertise; and a test platform that you can use from requirements definition to manufacturing test.

Modular Solutions and Graphical Programming
National Instruments modular hardware and graphical software tools can help decrease the cost and increase the flexibility of hardware-in-the-loop test systems by incorporating a flexible, high-performance, real-time system; a highly flexible and reliable user-programmable FPGA; and modular, measurement hardware. With NI LabVIEW system design software, you can implement your HIL system using graphical programming. It provides hundreds of analysis and control functions so you can build powerful monitoring and control applications.

Increase Quality and Efficiency With Test Component Reuse
Implement system-level tests that you can reuse throughout the entire embedded software development process.

Committed to Engineers and Scientists

National Instruments makes a positive impact by doing what it does best — applying engineering expertise toward critical societal issues and equipping engineers with tools that accelerate innovation and discovery.  NI’s graphical system design approach provides an integrated software and hardware platform that simplifies development of any system that needs measurement and control.
