The National Instruments VirtualBench All-in-One Instrument won the “Best in Design & Test” award in the General Purpose Test Category this week at DesignCon 2015. The $1999 VirtualBench is the electronic engineer’s instrumentation equivalent of a multi-tool, packing several test instruments into one compact unit:

 

  • 2-channel, 100MHz digital sampling oscilloscope with 500M/1G samples/sec for 1/2 channels
  • 34-channel, 100MHz logic analyzer
  • 20MHz/125Msamples/sec sine/square/ramp/triangle/dc/arb signal generator (14-bit resolution)
  • 5½-digit DMM with Vdc, Vac, Idc, Iac, resistance, continuity, and diode measurements
  • 3-channel programmable power supply (0-6V @ 1A, 0-25V @ 0.5A, 0 to -25V @ 0.5A))
  • 8 channels of digital I/O (5V-compatible input, 3.3V output)

The NI VirtualBench is controlled by NI’s LabVIEW, the GUI-based design platform for measurement and control systems. You operate the NI VirtualBench using a touch screen with control applications for Windows PCs and iPads.

 

The NI VirtualBench is based on a Xilinx Zynq SoC. Here’s a VirtualBench teardown video from last year’s ARM TechCon, performed by Kyle Bryson, Principal Architect at National Instruments:
