The LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit supports running a simulation on the following types of National Instruments RT Series hardware.

  • PXI/PCI
    • Any PXI-RT controller
  • FieldPoint
    • Any FieldPoint or Compact Fieldpoint controller with at least 32 MB of RAM. National Instruments recommends at least 64 MB of RAM. For targets with less than 32 MB of RAM, you should not install VISA if you want to use the SIT server in the driver VI.
  • CompactRIO
    • NI cRIO-9961

Refer to the KnowledgeBase for information about configuring hardware devices for use with the Simulation Interface Toolkit.

The following table shows the features available with each type of hardware.

Feature NI-CAN Interfaces NI-DAQ Devices NI FPGA Targets
Single-rate models Yes Yes Yes
Multi-rate models Yes Yes Yes
Single device configurable I/O Yes Yes Yes
Multiple device configurable I/O Yes Yes Yes
Mixed configurable I/O Yes Yes Yes
Custom FPGA VIs Yes1
Hardware timing Yes Yes
Analog I/O Yes2 Yes Yes
Digital I/O Yes2 Yes Yes
Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) I/O Yes2 Yes
Auto-detection of installed devices and I/O modules Yes Yes

1The Simulation Interface Toolkit ships with bitfiles and FPGA VIs for several National Instruments FPGA targets, including the following targets:

  • NI PCI-7811R
  • NI PXI-7811R
  • NI PCI-7813R
  • NI PXI-7813R
  • NI PCI-7831R
  • NI PXI-7831R
  • NI PCI-7833R
  • NI PXI-7833R
  • NI cRIO-9103

Refer to the LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit Readme, located in the labview\readme directory, for the most up-to-date list of installed bitfiles. You can use the LabVIEW FPGA Module to create custom FPGA VIs for other FPGA targets.

2The Simulation Interface Toolkit uses .dbc and/or .ncd files to determine the properties of a particular CAN channel.
