Since 1976, National Instruments industry products have been employed by more than 35,000 companies to solve some of the world’s greatest challenges. To prepare today’s students to solve tomorrow’s grand challenges, NI has developed educational hardware products that are built on the same industry-standard data acquisition (DAQ), reconfigurable I/O (RIO), and software defined radio (SDR) platforms.
NI myDAQ is a portable DAQ device that gives students the ability to measure and analyze live signals anywhere, anytime.
NI myRIO is a portable embedded device that gives students the ability to design real systems more quickly and affordably than ever before.
The NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) is a modular engineering teaching platform with 12 commonly used measurement instruments in a single compact form factor.
The NI USRP™ (Universal Software Radio Peripheral) platform supports RF and communications courses through accessible, hands-on laboratory learning with real-world signals.
NI VirtualBench is an all-in-one test device that couples the most five essential bench top test instruments with a simple and intuitive software interface.
NI CompactDAQ is an industry-standard, modular platform that interfaces directly to any sensor for DAQ in the laboratory.
NI CompactRIO is a rugged and reconfigurable control and monitoring platform built on the latest NI FPGA and real-time technology.
NI PXI is the industry-leading modular instrumentation platform used to build compact, high-performance test and measurement systems.
