Issue Details

I want to build a control system using Arduino and LabVIEW. Can I control the Arduino platform with LabVIEW?


The third-party LabVIEW Add-On LINX by Digilent/LabVIEW Marker Hub is designed to be a generic hardware abstraction layer for embedded platform devices like Arduino, chipKIT, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, etc. See the article titled How To Download Digilent LINX For LabVIEW? for more information.

Additional Information

Previously, this article referred to the LabVIEW Interface for Arduino (LIFA) Toolkit. LIFA has been replaced with LINX. It is highly recommended to migrate to LINX as there will be no further development for LIFA.
