    Hi everyone,

    I have done a project using PIC microcontroller interfacing with Labview and it's nice to see them communicating with each other. Currently I am learning FPGA using development board and it's pretty cool to run my verilog coding and dealing lots of digital stuff. Anyone have idea on how to communicate FPGA with Labview? And is it worth learning both Labview and FPGA as they are quite "powerful" by themselves? I am an electronics lover and would like to invent and go into something that's special or rather can makes me learn a lot. Any comment?

    hi,

    There are several serial communication examples in the Labview software itself, you can start from there. Try to use your microcontroller and send out data periodically to Labview as you sent out to PC com port. Once you managed to capture the data, you can manipulate it by first storing in an array. Your labview programme have to keep pooling to get the data. The given example would be a good start for you.

    What kind of data transfer rate do you need from your device to Labview

    You can go through the same route and create an UART in the FPGA to communicate serialy with Labview. That's the easiest way. There is also the possibility of communicating through USB, if your dev board support USB port.

    What kind of school is that? I suppose that it is a university, don´t you have some teacher to help you with it?
    As for the interface, you can use for example USB.
