Is NI myRIO Discontinued?

Hello all, I've been doing some online searches for myRIO (especially Digilent) and came across that myRIO has been discontinued. Can anyone on this forum assist in this information? We got a research grant and require myRIO as our embedded controller. Thanks in advance. Regards.

I hope not!  We use myRIO in some of our Projects, and I've steered some of our more inquisitive and adventurous Engineering students to check out this mighty package.

You still can buy it from NI.
However you have to accept that the current and future software will not support, you have to downgrade your software to 2019.
This is the sad part, no more investment on this product, it is just a cash cow.

I believe that, while there is no myRIO Toolkit 2020, there will be a myRIO Toolkit 2021, though it might lag a bit behind the roll-out of LabVIEW 2021.  From my discussions with people who work for NI, I think that the myRIO (and its software support) are not in serious danger at this time.

Thanks. 

This is exactly what NI rep here told me. Thankfully our project isn't suffering at all. However we will have to make some serious investments in our Q14 milestones. Perhaps a cRIO since we are not quite sure about myRIO support in the coming 2 years.

The myRIO has so much in such a compact little box, needing only a 15V supply, having WiFi, lots of A/D, D/A, digital I/O, etc., and an FPGA if you need fast ...
