Real-Time Module Best Practices

June 2014, 373132F-01

Developing complex LabVIEW Real-Time applications requires an understanding of how LabVIEW maps to the real-time computing model. Some LabVIEW programming strategies that work well when developing for a general-purpose operating system do not translate to the headless, priority-driven execution model of a real-time operating system (RTOS).

This book provides best practices for designing, developing, and deploying applications with the LabVIEW Real-Time Module. Following these best practices can mean the difference between success and failure for a deployed system. Use the RT Best Practices Portal as a graphical navigation window for finding best practices documents.
