Issue Details

I have a desktop PC that is running RTX or Phar Lap ETS with the LabVIEW Real-Time Module on it. I would like to be able to acquire images using an NI PCI framegrabber or a NI PCI Firewire card. Are the IMAQ PCI (or PCIe) boards supported on RTX or ETS?


All of the IMAQ PCI and PCIe boards are supported on Phar Lap ETS systems, but unfortunately they are not supported on RTX systems. The NI-IMAQ and NI-IMAQdx drivers are supported on ETS systems, therefore the PCI and PCI Express IMAQ boards will work in the ETS environment. For more information on the LabVIEW Real-Time Module for ETS and RTX targets, please see the related link below.
