Issue Details

I'm looking at using either Remote Front Panels or Shared Variables to communicate data between my RT target and host PC. What should I consider?

Solution

Remote Front Panels use more resources than Shared Variables so you may run into performance or memory issues. Understanding Communication Options Between the Windows HMI, RT Processor, and FPGA has more information on what methods are good for communication between an RT target (RT Processor) and a host PC (Windows HMI).
