RT-201: PLCs vs. Real-Time Systems

In RT-101: Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS), I provided readers with a brief description of the many benefits that systems running an RTOS can provide in harsh and demanding environments. The bigger question is: in an industry saturated by PLCs (Pr...


RT-301: Capabilities of Distributed LabVIEW Real-Time

Eric Nielsen’s Real Time blog did a good job of hitting the major strengths and benefits of any system based on a controller running a Real-time operating system. Here I’ll get into a little more depth, specifically for the capabilities t...


Taming Clock Drift With NI-Sync

Some data acquisition applications using LabVIEW require an ultimately stable clock reference. In these cases there are a number of options, such as GPS, for generating a clock reference that is more accurate than your DAQ board can attain on its own...
