Accessing GPIO on a Atom based embedded computer board

We are running our Labview application on a Atom based embedded computer PCB (advantech PCM-9361FG). The board has a  8 bit GPIO available, which I understand is common on embedded computer systems. Can I access and make use of this GPIO within a Labview programme?

 

Labview version : 8.6.1

Operating System: XP

I don't know in Atom, but when using Blackfin, in Blackfin pallete, you have a I/O sub-pallete with digital I/O!

Simply choose the port and number and the state true or false! Hope this helps.

Good Luck

Hello Sylar,

As this is 3rd party hardware you shall need to install the devices API which will allow communication to your GPIO with the use of .dll files.

I have managed to find what I believe to be the latest API inteface available for this device.

 

Let me know if this helps.

Hi Philip,

 

Thanks for your advice.

By installing the set of drivers for the Atom Board to which provide the API interface to the hardware, I have managed to access the GPIO via calling functions within the susi.dll.

 

There are many other interesting hardware features which can be controlled using calls to the susi.dll should I need to!  

 

Again thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
