LabVIEW Real-Time Module


The LabVIEW Real-Time Module is a complete solution for creating reliable, stand-alone embedded systems with a graphical programming approach. As an add-on to the LabVIEW development environment, the module helps you develop and debug graphical applications that you can download to and execute on embedded hardware devices such as CompactRIO, CompactDAQ, PXI, vision systems, or third-party PCs.

Top 3 Reasons to Use the LabVIEW Real-Time Module

1. Extend LabVIEW Graphical Programming to Stand-Alone Embedded Systems

LabVIEW Real-Time includes built-in constructs for multithreading and real-time thread scheduling to help you efficiently write robust, deterministic code. Graphically program stand-alone systems to run reliably for extended periods.

2. Take Advantage of a Real-Time OS for Precise Timing and High Reliability

General-purpose OSs are not optimized to run critical applications with strict timing requirements. LabVIEW Real-Time supports NI embedded hardware that runs either the NI Linux Real-Time, VxWorks, or Phar Lap ETS real-time OS (RTOS).

3. Use a Wide Variety of IP and Real-Time Hardware Drivers

Use hundreds of prewritten LabVIEW libraries, like PID control and FFT, in your stand-alone systems. Real-time hardware drivers and LabVIEW APIs are also provided for most NI I/O modules, enabling deterministic data acquisition.
