I didn't find something related to this, so I hope it's a new idea.
I use frequently VI scripting on LabVIEW, it is very useful for example to generate template VI's.
but this feature doesn't exist under FPGA, I mean some code is specific to this module, and I think it would be great to be able to generate FPGA VI's programmatically. For example in my job we make FPGA programming for Magnet Security. Even if global structure is the same for all magnets, we have to adapt a lot of things depending on type of magnet and instrumentation available. The idea would be to create ourself a kind of Magnet Safety Editor based on VI scripting specific for FPGA in order to allow non-programmers, but Magnet specialists, to generate themselves an adapted security system.
It's just an example, but when we see powerful of VI scripting for LabVIEW, it would give great results if it extends to FPGA, and even Real-Time module, why not?
