National Instruments becomes member of Power.org
National Instruments has joined Power.org, an open and collaborative organisation dedicated to developing and promoting Power Architecture technology as the preferred open standard platform for the electronics industry. Power Architecture technology, an instruction set architecture prevalent in microprocessors, forms an enhanced platform for collaborative hardware and software innovation between leading technology companies such as Freescale Semiconductor, IBM, Xilinx and National Instruments. The goal of Power.org members is to create community specifications as well as support development tools that work together to facilitate integration and improved implementations.
Roland Hagan, Chairman of the Power.org Board of Directors and Vice President of Marketing and Strategy for IBM Global Engineering Solutions, comments: "Power.org is pleased to have National Instruments join our open community and to have them contribute to the ecosystem through work on collaborative technology and standards. Since the start of 2007, the organisation has not only grown but leveraged the expertise and commitment of companies like National Instruments to deliver new standards and programs while increasing business value to the design engineering community."
National Instruments offers more than 30 years of technology leadership to Power.org, as well as significant experience supporting Power Architecture technology through the company's graphical system design platform. As a member of Power.org, National Instruments benefits from the collaboration with leading technology companies whose expertise of Power Architecture technology can be applied to the creation of high-performance, rugged and low-power commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) NI hardware. National Instruments also extends the benefits of Power.org to engineers and scientists by making it possible for them to combine COTS hardware with NI LabVIEW graphical development tools to program Power Architecture processors and quickly design, prototype and deploy embedded systems.
Fawzi Behmann, Chairman of the Power.org Marketing Committee and Director of Strategic Marketing at Freescale, states: "National Instruments has a history of providing technologies that demonstrate a commanding knowledge of the Power Architecture technology and an understanding of the importance of tightly integrated commercial off-the-shelf hardware and easy-to-use software. The experience and leadership National Instruments offers will help Power.org develop both software and hardware specifications and guidelines that will result in a more cohesive Power Architecture community."
