The bitfile contains all the configuration information from the block diagram defining the internal logic and digital circuit of the FPGA and device-specific information from other files associated with the FPGA target. When the FPGA application executes, the bitfile loads on the FPGA chip and reconfigures the gate array logic. If you want to share or reference a bitfile that you create in the LabVIEW FPGA Module, you need the bitfile path, which is available only in the FPGA build specification.

Complete the following steps to view the bitfile path corresponding to a compiled FPGA VI:

  1. Compile the FPGA VI.
  2. Right-click the FPGA build specification in the Project Explorer window and select Properties.
  3. You can view the bitfile path of the VI on the Information page of the Compilation Properties dialog box.
  4. Click OK.
