Owning Palette: FPGA Interface VIs and Functions

Requires: FPGA Interface

Casts Session In to the data type of Type. This function only changes the type of elements that FPGA VI reference contains. This function does not convert data. Use this function with the FPGA Interface Dynamic Refnum constant to create a dynamic host interface. Some FPGA targets might not support this function.

The connector pane displays the default data types for this polymorphic function.

Details  

Type is the reference data type to which you want to convert the FPGA VI reference. Wire any constant or control to Type to set the reference data type to which you want to convert the FPGA VI reference.
Session In is the FPGA VI reference you want to convert to Type.
Session Out is the FPGA VI reference Session In converted to the same reference data type as Type.

Dynamic FPGA Interface Cast Details

Use this function with an FPGA Interface Dynamic Refnum wired to Type to specify the interface for the FPGA VI reference. The interface can contain elements such as controls, indicators, DMA channels, and target-specific methods.
