NOTE: This product is not included in any Sales or Discounts. Customers who are not affiliated with FIRST teams are required to purchase this product through National Instruments (http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/en/nid/213308), not AndyMark.

Product Overview:

The NI roboRIO is the next generation in student robotics controllers. For the most up to date information, and technical specifics, please visit the National Instruments roboRIO webpage. For more roboRIO support for FIRST Robotics Competition teams, visit ni.com/frc

This device is designed specifically with FIRST in mind. It's more powerful, lighter, and smaller than the previous cRIO. This controller will give FRC teams unmatched power starting in the FRC 2015 season. FIRST has a schematic which shows how the 2015 FRC control system is laid out, with the roboRIO as the central controlling unit.

For RoboRIO replacement contact NI.

F.A.Q.
  • Will my FRC Team receive the roboRio?
    • Rookie teams receive a roboRIO in their Kit of Parts. Veteran teams do not receive one in the Kit, but you can purchase one through AndyMark.
  • Will roboRIO support other programming languages?
    • Yes, it will have the same language support as the current cRIO: LabVIEW, Java, and C++.
  • How is roboRIO different from myRIO?
    • Both devices use the Xilinx Zynq chipset (processor + FPGA) and use a lot of the same architecture. roboRIO has connectors and I/O specific for use in FIRST (e.g. CAN and PWM connectors), while the myRIO uses generic screw terminals for all I/O. The software experience will also differ between the devices initial since the roboRIO will require the FRC Suite. The roboRIO is also designed to be more rugged so that it can survive multiple FRC seasons through features such as con-formal coating and extra short protection.
  • Can non FRC Teams purchase a roboRIO?
    • FRC teams, affiliates, partners, and organizers can purchase roboRIO from AndyMark provided they will be used to support FRC teams and competitions. roboRIO will be made available for non-FRC purposes here (http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/en/nid/213308). If you are interested in getting more information when it is available for non-FRC purposes, please send us an e-mail at roboRIO@andymark.com
  • Can I get more information on the roboRIO?
  • We lost our power connector, where can I get more?

    The right part for the job

    Our team is putting together a dedicated software test bed this summer; to be in sync with the competition machine we went with the same controller that is used for competition. Looking forward to seeing what the kids can do in the realm vision processing in the coming years.

    Replacement

    This order was amazing. I could not believe how fast it arrived. Unfortunately this was ordered because another part from you quit during this first day of competition. We got a loaner part with the intention of getting our original part fixed. My coach and student programmer called separately and did not get a return phone call. We would still like to get the original fixed.

    Exactly as advertised

    We bought this to use as a control board off of our robot for testing purposes. It worked just like it should have, and has helped us test some different things without having to un-bag our bot!

    Tremendous Discout for FIRST Teams

    Purchased for FRC Team 2980's practice robot. The price break for FIRST teams is incredible. Thank you AndyMark! You made having a second robot affordable.

    Packaging

    You guys packaged a $2000 piece of hardware(retail, $435 on AndyMark obviously) with a thin piece of ESD safe bubble wrap, a small box, and then tossed it in a box with other hardware with some paper packing to go with it. Not everyday you see that much carelessness, I was disappointed. While the device was fine, coming from FedEX with that shoddy packaging could have been a real problem with the way FedEX handles its packages.

    Looks Good

    From what I have seen, it looks like a good product. From dealing with NI, asking probably to many questions, and from handling it up close, I Believe it will be a good controller. Time will tell. And to whomever did the metal shavings review...learn to cover your electronics.

    Some farm boy told me "What a piece of junk!" but I told him "She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid".
