Issue Details

I recently purchased a Single-Board RIO (sbRIO) and I am familiar with using the CompactRIO systems. Is there any difference in how I will program the sbRIO in LabVIEW?


There are no differences in how the sbRIO is programmed in LabVIEW, as compared to the cRIO. If you are new to the sbRIO, you can check out the Hardware Developers Community for resources on developing with the hardware as well as NI System on Module (SOM).
