Issue Details

I'm using NI PCIe-8237R vision card which provides NC-SI I/O, but with little information on what each I/O stands for. Aside from the documentation, I'm more into finding an example using FPGA NC-SI I/O.

There is also numerous 8237R example in LabVIEW. However, I couldn't really find one that is using these NC-SI I/O. Do you have more documents or examples to guide me in using NC-SI resources?


As an example of the NC-SI FPGA I/O in PCIe-8237R, NI recommends referring to the Vision RIO Configure Ethernet Action Command.vi.
This is because this example is configured for NC-SI I/O use on NI hardware (especially with NI Vision hardware such as PCIe-8237, CSV-145x and IC-317x).

You can find this example in the following path:
C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2019\vi.lib\vision\driver\Vision RIO.llb.

If you cannot find vi on this path, you should make sure that you have installed the Vision Development Module on your PC.
