Issue Details

I want to know if my cRIO, PXI/PXIe, or cDAQ real-time embedded controller can run VeriStand.


As listed in the VeriStand Supported National Instruments Hardware page, the following controllers are supported:
  • PXI/PCI–Any PXI controller with at least 256 MB of RAM.
  • CompactRIO/Single-Board RIO–Any CompactRIO or Single-Board RIO device with at least 128 MB of RAM.
  • Desktop PC–Any PC running Windows 7, Vista, XP Service Pack 3 or later, Server 2003 R2 (32-bit), or Server 2008 R2 (64-bit).

Additional Information

In order to run VeriStand, the controller and DAQ hardware that is being used must support the Hardware-Timed Single Point sampling mode
cDAQ chassis are not supported by Veristand, if you want to create an application using C series modules, you will need to use cRIO chassis.
