Does Labview Embedded support support Microchip's PIC32?

Hello I was wondering if Labview Embedded has any intention of supporting Microchip's PIC32 for programming purpose.  I am just evaluating my possibilities.

Hi Rick,

 

No, there are no plans for a LabVIEW Embedded module for Microchip. It is however possible to port LabVIEW to any 32 bit microprocessor with the LabVIEW Microprocessor SDK. There are a few stipulations though.

1. You should have an operating system. 

2. You should have a tool chain that you are familiar with. (if you can compile and run a simple C program on your target, you can port LabVIEW)

 

 You can find the Microprocessor SDK here: http://www.ni.com/labview/microprocessor_sdk

We have a detailed porting guide to help you: http://digital.ni.com/manuals.nsf/websearch/AB597F3FD5D9011886257448005F4A0C

 

Thank you, 

Jaidev

hi

is it possible to use pic32 just to receive signals in computer?

can we use pic32 to recieve signals and then through its USB connection, make labview read the signals in computer.

is it possible?

Of course! Why shouldnt that be possible? You simply write a firmware in whatever development tool chain you already use for your PIC32 development and then write a LabVIEW driver that understands the USB protocol you have implemented in your firmware. Most embedded designs are like that.

 

The possibility to develop the firmware directly in LabVIEW on supported embedded targets through one of the LabVIEW Embedded Toolkitsor on other targets through the LabVIEW Microprocessor SDK is a nice feature but by no means a must for successful embedded projects.

hi,..as discussed above..

im doing project on flow sensor which uses TI MSP430 F2274. Im using IAR workbench for development.

if i write a firmware in IAR workbench for recieving of signals to my PC and i write a Labview driver to understand the firware implemented, is it sufficient..

my question is tht, does labview embedded/labview microprocessor SDK supports Texas Instruments microcontrollers(MSP430 F2274)..?

can this firmware be developed directly in Labview so that my PC detects the signals and displays it in Labview.??

 Communicating with a labview application in PC and a microcontroller using USB can be a bit tricky at the microcontroller firmware side. The easiest way is to develop a firmware which is compliant to USB Test and Measurement Class specified by USB Spec. You can implement this by modifying an existing USB Mass storage device firmaware discriptors to TMC.

This is just modification of 2-3 C line code.You have to create an INI file to point the device to LabviewTMC drivers. Thought it can be tricky,its can be done by someone who got basic C programming skills.

As far as I know MSP430 is a 16bit controller and you need 32 bit controllers to implement Labview embedded support,So it should not be possible. You may implement the communication between the devices using serial port orof the controller and PC.

Switch to ethernet interface if you require high sampling rates.

Yes, MSP430 is a 16bit microcontroller..

I have to display the digitized voltage readings on to my PC via labview. My transmitter and reciever has one MSP430 F2274 uC each which communicate with RF link using CC2500. Can you suggest or give me an idea how i can display the digitized voltage signals recieved by my USB reciever module using labview.?

Now there is a new toolkit to program the PIC32 microcontroller family. The toolkit name is 3Dmicro Toolkit.

 

You can find the free evaluation of this Toolkit on the LabVIEW Tools Network:
http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/it/nid/210550

 

or on our website http://www.3d-svs.com/3dmicro-toolkit

 

I'm a developer of the Toolkit. You can ask for more information directly to me r.donnini@3d-svs.com or visiting the support page on our website.

 

On April 2012 will be released the Full version that you can purchase.

 

Regards

On the LabVIEW Tools Network we are updating the Evaluation installer with the last one.

 

To have immediately the most updated version (bug free) I suggest to download the toolkit directly from our website.

 

Follow the direct download link:

http://www.3d-svs.com/3dmicro-toolkit-download/free-evaluation/3dmicro-toolkit-installer-2011.exe

 

Form more news follow us on facebook, twitter or on our website.
