4 RoboRIO Based on NI myRIO – using FPGA for I/O tasks –Costs $435, weighs 12oz, fits in a quart zip-top bag –4 to 10x faster, dual core ARM, NI RT Linux –Built-in CAN, Custom Electronics Port, USB Fewer power and data cables SW is highly compatible

5

6 Power Distribution Panel + VRM Comparison to PDB + 12v-15v Converter New Features –CAN Monitoring Known 2014 Issues Addressed

7 Power Distribution Panel (PDP)

8 Voltage Regulator Module (VRM)

9 Pneumatics Control Module (PCM) Comparison to Solenoid Breakout New Features Known 2014 Issues Addressed

10 PCM (Pneumatics Control Module)

11 Motor Controllers Victor SP Talon SRX

12 Wireless & Network Configuration Changes from 2014 –mDNS

13 Driver Station Resizable/Reconfigurable DHCP & mDNS Power Metrics USB Device Test

14 LabVIEW Based on LabVIEW 2014 Power & USB Camera Robotics APIs and Simulator Deploy doesn’t reboot Record and Playback, Test Mode Highly compatible with previous years

15 C++ and Java Development Environment Change –No more rebooting between tests Toolchain Changes –C++11/C++1y, Java8 –FRCSim Library Changes –CAN overhaul
