PED-Board V3 has been released!

– PED-Board ecosystem-

A dedicated board having the specific features that cover the requirements of the Power Electronics and Drives (PED) applications. Accordingly, the PED-Board has been designed and realized to exploit the benefits of the NI SoM (formally sbRIO-9651) and LabVIEW graphical programming. PED-Board incorporates ADC, DAC, CAN-bus and many other functionalities that can cover the requirements of a typical PED project.

Proposed PED-Board can be connected to almost every power converter thanks to the application specific Adapter Board. The Adapter Board is placed on top the PED-Board providing mainly the required connections to the outer world.

PED-Board is the right companion for the so-called software-defined PED application
One board, specific software…a world of possibilities

Lithium battery for the Real-Time clock


Dedicated LabVIEW drivers and demo programs have been developed to completely support the user in the application software design stage. Each peripheral is fully supported by the LabVIEW CLIP and/or a specific VI. Kernel programs are available for users with properly designed FPGA main scheduler, Real-Time target tasks, synchronization etc…
