The NI LabVIEW Interface for Arduino Toolkit helps you easily interface with the Arduino microcontroller using LabVIEW.

With this toolkit and LabVIEW, you can control or acquire data from the Arduino microcontroller. Once the information is in LabVIEW, analyze it using the hundreds of built-in LabVIEW libraries, develop algorithms to control the Arduino hardware, and present your findings on a polished UI.

A sketch for the Arduino microcontroller acts as an I/O engine that interfaces with LabVIEW VIs through a serial connection. This helps you quickly move information from Arduino pins to LabVIEW without adjusting the communication, synchronization, or even a single line of C code. Using the common Open, Read/Write, Close convention in LabVIEW, you can access the digital, analog, pulse-width-modulated, I2C, and SPI signals of the Arduino microcontroller. To learn how the under-the-hood functionality works so you can modify or extend it, look inside the subVIs or open the Arduino sketch.

Note: The Arduino microcontroller must be connected to the computer with LabVIEW through a USB, serial, Bluetooth, or XBee link. This toolkit does not provide for headless operation.
