first of all: I have to warn you, I'm completely new to LabView 😉
I'm dealing with a student research project at my university. In my project I'm researching the possibilities to port an existing LabView-Programm written on a tablet PC running Win7 on a smaller PanelPC (embedded display) running Windows CE. LabView is creating a human-machine-interface to supervise and control components via CAN-Bus on a electrified sail plane. The porting on the small panel PC is due to limited space in the cockpit.
Therefore I've found an embedded display running Windows CE 6.0 and a ARM9 processor with CAN-Bus controller onboard, drivers included.
You may look it up here: emtrion DIMM MX257
Before we can order the board and start the porting it is important to know if its possible to use the boards CAN-Bus under LabView. Will there be driverrelated problems? Is there anyone who has experience with application of Labview on embedded displays / WinCE?
Thankyou in advance!
If you want to use the protocol CAN to comunicate with your board, I can think of a couple of products that will help you with your application:
Do you think you will be able to integrate one of those products in your system?
To use the on-board CAN port, you could use some libraries and toolkits developped for CAN buses. I have been looking at them and I am not sure if they will work with windows CE to control an on-board CAN. Anyway I send you the links so that you can retrieve more information about the compatibility with windows CE:
