Cannot Add FPGA Target When Using LabVIEW FPGA Module 64-bit

Updated Mar 25, 2020

  • LabVIEW 2018 FPGA Module

Issue Details

  • I want to use an FPGA Target on my hardware with the LabVIEW FPGA Module (64-Bit). Is this supported?
  • When I try to add the module to a LabVIEW project, it doesn't appear in the list of available targets, though it appears in NI-MAX.
  • When I try to use the module, I get the following error: The FPGA Module 64-bit does not support the current target.


The 64-bit version of the LabVIEW FPGA Module only supports some modules in the following hardware lines:
  • USRP RIO devices
  • PXIe-5163R/5164R/517xR/576x/659xR/7902R/791x/797xR/798x, which includes:
    • FlexRIO devices
    • High-Speed Serial devices
    • Vector Signal Transceivers
    • Vector Signal Analyzers
    • Vector Signal Generators
Note: This is the hardware range supported in LabVIEW FPGA Module 2018 64-bit. For a list of supported hardware in a different version, refer to the version's Readme document. This can be found on the download page.

Additional Information

The 64-bit version of the FPGA module was created to resolve out-of-memory errors that were common on these devices when using the 32-bit FPGA module. For other FPGA targets such as CompactRIO and R Series RIO devices, we recommend using the LabVIEW 32-bit FPGA Module.
