Issue Details

In my application, I would like to use a USB-RS232 converter in order to stream serial data in to VeriStand. How can I do this?

Solution

USB to serial converters are not fully supported on PharLap targets. While the USB to serial converter may be recognized, it will be identified as a USB RAW device.

In order to stream serial data into VeriStand on a PharLap target, it is recommended to use an on board RS232 connection or use an NI Serial Interface Module to add serial support to your device.
