NI LabVIEW is a diverse graphical system design tool, and people who use it are doing some awesome things. LabVIEW is used in almost every industry, and when it comes to the medical industry, nothing compares. Researchers using LabVIEW are making huge progress in their industries, and the latest and greatest from the medical industry is a cost-effective liver dialysis prototype for clinical trials.

"The combination of LabVIEW and CompactRIO hardware significantly contributed to the deployment success of the prototype of our innovative liver dialysis therapy. Using NI technologies helped us deliver the first system within just seven months.”  Holger Chab, Hepa Wash GmbH

 

 

 

Researchers at Hepa Wash wanted to create a prototype that met performance and specification requirements set forth by the company, and achieved medical device safety under guidelines set forth by the International Electrotechnical Commission. Researchers used the LabVIEW FPGA and LabVIEW Real-Time modules with NI CompactRIO hardware to control the liver dialysis therapy prototype, as well as NI Requirements Gateway software to automatically create traceability documentation between requirements, tests, and design. By using all of these tools Hepa Wash achieved authorization for clinical studies within seven months.

We just introduced new additions to NI reconfigurable I/O (RIO) technology – a reconfigurable Camera Link frame grabber, a motion module for the NI CompactRIO platform, and six new custom brushless DC motors.

 

Ideal for advanced inspection and imaging applications, the NI PCIe-1473R frame grabber is a PC-based embedded vision board that combines FPGA technology with a Camera Link interface. The new frame grabber’s onboard FPGA can be programmed with the NI LabVIEW FPGA Module for custom image processing and analysis in real time. It also features a high-bandwidth 850 MB/s Camera Link bus to support a range of Camera Link configurations and includes Power over Camera Link (PoCL) wireless capabilities, removing the need for additional cables or external power supply.

 

For advanced motion control challenges, the NI 9502 motion drive module for CompactRIO can power brushless, stepper or brushed servo motors directly with NI C Series modules to provide a compact, highly customizable motion drive solution. With 4 A continuous/8 A peak current, multiple commutation modes and direct connectivity with our six new three-phase brushless DC motors and integration with LabVIEW FPGA, the NI 9502 helps engineers implement proprietary custom drive control algorithms, eliminating the need for custom firmware from a drive manufacturer.
