The NXT Sensor Adapter for the NI® myRIO is designed to bring the popular Lego® Mindstorms® NXT sensors to the myRIO ecosystem. The NXT Sensor Adaptor connects to one of the 34-pin MXP ports on your NI myRIO and breaks out the myRIO Analog, Digital, and I2C channels to three standard NXT input ports. Additionally, all three NXT sensor ports have female jumper connections for directly probing NXT sensor signals or connecting your own custom solutions.

This board will support “passive” and “digital” Lego-certified sensors. This includes light, sound, touch, compass, tilt, color, force and magnetic sensors.
