Issue Details

I purchased an NI DAQ board. Can I use it on my Linux OS?


In order to use DAQ boards on a Linux OS, you will need to install DAQmx Base, the drivers needed for Linux operating systems. Not all operating systems are supported by DAQmx base. To see which Linux operating systems are supported, please refer to our documentation on NI-DAQmx Base and Linux / OS X Compatibility.

In addition, please refer to the NI-DAQmx Base 15.0 download page to see if your product is supported by our latest offering of this driver.
