Issue Details

I am starting a project with an IC 317x Windows/Real-Time Industrial Controller (IC) and do not know how to access the I/O on the FPGA.  How do I access the FPGA within the code?

Solution

1. To access the FPGA, you must first ensure you have the Industrial Controller added to your project.  If you are using a Real-Time controller, you will first have to add the Real-Time target to your project.
Note: If you have a Windows Industrial Controller and are developing on a separate computer, follow the article for accessing RIO devices on a networked computer to ensure your project is configured correctly. 

2. Once you can see the Industrial Controller in your project, simply right click on it and select New > Targets And Devices and add an FPGA target.

 
3. From there, right click on the FPGA Target and select New > FPGA I/O. A pop-up window will appear and allow you to select the I/O to add to your project.
