NI VeriStand supports NI-XNET devices, NI-DAQ devices, and NI FPGA targets.

Note  For the best performance, NI VeriStand recommends that NI-DAQ devices support single-point timed hardware I/O or on-demand sampling. Refer to the KnowledgeBase for a list of NI-DAQ devices that support single-point timed hardware I/O.

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

Feature NI-XNET Devices NI-DAQ Devices NI FPGA Targets
Custom FPGA VIs Yes1
Hardware timing Yes Yes
Analog I/O Yes Yes
Digital I/O Yes Yes
Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) I/O Yes2 Yes
Auto-discovery of installed devices and I/O modules Yes Yes Yes
1 Refer to FPGA Targets with Built-in Support below for a list of NI FPGA targets for which NI VeriStand provides bitfiles and FPGA configuration files.

2 The following list describes device support for this feature:
  • Generating pulses—If hardware-timed single-point sample mode is enabled (default) for a counter output channel, only X Series PCI and PXI devices support generating pulses with that channel. However, if that property is disabled for a CO channel, all DAQ devices support generating pulses.
  • Measuring pulses—Only X Series PCI and PXI devices support measuring pulses with counter input channels.

Supported Targets

NI VeriStand supports deploying a project to the following targets.

  • PXI/PCI–Any PXI controller with at least 256 MB of RAM.
  • CompactRIO/Single-Board RIO–Any CompactRIO or Single-Board RIO device with at least 128 MB of RAM.
  • Desktop PC–Any PC running Windows 7, Vista, XP Service Pack 3 or later, Server 2003 R2 (32-bit), or Server 2008 R2 (64-bit).

FPGA Targets with Built-in Support

NI VeriStand ships with bitfiles and FPGA configuration files for the following FPGA targets:

  • NI cRIO-9103–The files provided for the NI cRIO-9103 are configured for the NI 9215, NI 9263, NI 9411, and NI 9474 I/O modules.
  • NI PXI/PCI-7811R
  • NI PXI/PCI-7813R
  • NI PXI/PCI-7831R
  • NI PXI/PCI-7833R
  • NI PXI/PCIe-7841R
  • NI PXI/PCIe-7842R
  • NI PXI/PCIe-7851R
  • NI PXI/PCIe-7852R
  • NI PXI-7853R
  • NI PXI-7854R

All bitfiles use direct memory access (DMA) to transfer data.

You can use the LabVIEW FPGA Module to create custom FPGA bitfiles for these or other FPGA targets.
