FPGA Programming Simplified

National Instruments invites you to attend a free hands-on workshop to learn how to take advantage of the latest technologies, including graphical programming and NI FPGA-based PAC hardware, to lower the cost of advanced industrial measurement and control.

Discover first-hand how to design, prototype, and deploy real-time applications using NI LabVIEW Real-Time and LabVIEW FPGA programming tools and NI CompactRIO hardware. Learn about new features including the LabVIEW Real-Time (RT) 8.6 Scan Mode which dramatically simplifies FPGA programming.


In This Workshop

  • Conduct hands-on exercises with NI CompactRIO, including data flow and parallelism, and network communication.
  • Use high-level graphical programming to design your own custom reconfigurable FPGA hardware – learn how to create custom measurement and control hardware without low-level hardware description languages or board-level design.
  • See how you can use LabVIEW to design control systems with field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), real-time operating systems, and industrial I/O.
  • Learn how to develop LabVIEW Real-Time and LabVIEW FPGA applications for better code reuse and easier debugging.
  • Explore leading-edge control design tools and techniques to improve your design efficiency for industrial control systems and machines.
  • Learn about closed loop control design, simulation, implementation, and monitoring including PID control and FPGA based machine analysis.


Who Should Attend?

This seminar is designed for engineers and technicians who build, design, or implement advanced measurement or control systems. Engineers using programmable logic controllers or single-board computers, or those designing custom control systems, can benefit from this seminar.



Some experience with LabVIEW and data logging applications.


Application areas where CompactRIO can be utilised include:

  • In-vehicle data acquisition, data logging, and control.
  • Machine condition monitoring and protection.
  • Embedded system prototyping.
  • Remote and distributed monitoring.
  • Embedded data logging.
  • Custom multi-axis motion control.
  • Electrical power monitoring and power electronics control.
  • Servo-hydraulic and heavy machinery control.
  • Batch and discrete control.
  • Mobile/portable noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) analysis.
