NI myRIO Hardware Overview

NI myRIO is a revolutionary hardware/software platform that gives students the ability to “do engineering” and design real systems more quickly than ever before. Complete with the latest Zynq integrated system-on-a-chip (SoC) technology from Xilinx, the NI myRIO boasts a dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 processor and an FPGA with 28,000 programmable logic cells, 10 analog inputs, 6 analog outputs, audio I/O channels, and up to 40 lines of digital input/output (DIO). Designed and priced for the academic user, NI myRIO also includes onboard WiFi, a three-axis accelerometer, and several programmable LEDs in a durable, enclosed form factor.
