Issue Details

I want to build a control system using a Raspberry Pi and LabVIEW. Can I control the Raspberry Pi platform from LabVIEW?


The third-party LabVIEW Add-On LINX by Digilent/LabVIEW Marker Hub is designed to be a generic hardware abstraction layer for embedded platform devices like Arduino, chipKIT, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, etc.

See the article titledĀ How To Download Digilent LINX For LabVIEW? for more information and Install Guide for Raspberry Pi + LabVIEW 2014 + MakerHub-LINX on our community forums for installation help.

Additional Information

Note: Using the LINX toolkit in commercial settings must be under the terms of LINX's license, which is available here.

Digilent LINX is the successor of LabVIEW Interface for Arduino (LIFA). Both packages are from the same software author, who recommends migrating to LINX. LINX is designed to be a more generic hardware abstraction layer for embedded devices, rather than designed for just one specific microcontroller platform.
