    I have construct the circuit in the atachment, I have put a lm35 to measure temperature, I have programming in micro basic the pic 16f877 to send data in rs232 every 2ms with 9600 baud rate.
    At the rs232 receive a hex number, how can I read it from labview ?? I want to display temperature in an appropriate way in labview. there is a .vi?? or there is a link with step by step instructions??

    not sure what version your running, but in my 8 ver they have a number of serial port vi examples in 'examples'. Google shows many examples as well.

    basically you'll open the port, loop to read, then close the port when done.
