I am trying to create a LabVIEW interface to an embedded control systems that uses Coldfire M52259 as its microprocessor. I would like this LabVIEW interface to be a simple input/ouput data display. If possible, I would like to send some commands like start/stop to the microprocessor. Any advice on this is very much appreciated.
I'm not familiar with the board so I did a little search and found this site. Seems like you have to build a firmware first that can open a communication channel (serial, USB, ethernet...) then you can use LabVIEW to communicate to it. If you would like to use the serial or USB approach you can build your VIs based on VISA APIs.
you can start looking at the examples installed locally. Open the NI Example Finder and open the folder called Hardware Input and Output. You can also check the ones on the system folders under C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW XXXX\examples
