Although NI VeriStand provides most of the functionality required by real-time testing applications, you can customize and extend the environment with add-ons. Add-on features for NI VeriStand include custom user interface objects for the Workspace window, custom devices that add support for additional hardware interfaces, or real-time engine functions. Add-ons come in a few different formats:
NI VeriStand includes a pre-built custom device called Embedded Data Logger that you can add to a system definition file from the System Explorer window. You can find the Embedded Data Logger LLB and Custom Device XML file in the <Common Data>\Custom Devices directory. You can use the Embedded Data Logger without installing LabVIEW. However, you must install LabVIEW to open a custom device LLB or VI.
|Note You must install a device driver for any custom device hardware you use. Refer to the hardware device documentation for installation instructions.|
