Issue Details

We purchased PXIe Ballard MIL-STD-1553 board and going to use it in PXI with Windows OS, but I can't find any getting started resources.
Where can I download LabVIEW drivers for it? Where I can find the Ballard MIL-STD-1553 manual or user guide?

Solution

OmniBus II NI PXIe User Manual has board funcionality and I/O description.
LabVIEW Astronics Ballard driver can be downloaded from
Astronics Ballard LabVIEW Software Driver page.

If you have PXI system with RT OS installed refer to Ballard PXIe MIL-STD-1553 Getting Started For RT Target.

Additional Information

The Ballard driver uses a different kernel for Windows and RT. Therefore there are some differences in how the card will appear across systems.

In Windows:

  • The card will NOT show up in MAX
  • The Ballard driver will NOT show up in MAX

  • The card WILL show up in the BTITST32 application

  • The card WILL show up in Windows Device Manager (as two cores)
