Issue Details

I'm planning to use an Ethernet or USB cDAQ in Linux. Are there any drivers (such as DAQmx) available that allow the use of cDAQ chassis in Linux? 


As of the release of NI Linux Device Drivers (July 2019), USB cDAQs and TSN-enabled ethernet cDAQs (9189 and 9185) are supported on Linux.

Please view the DAQmx readme available at the NI Linux Device Drivers download page to find a comprehensive list of supported devices in the latest release.
