I am working with labview 2012. I have an Experimenter’s kit Delfino F283335 (Texas Instruments). I would like to connect it with labview. I have connected to the computer with USB cable. I have launched NI MAX and I saw that my device is recognized as ASRL7::INSTR (COM7). My question is:
Is it possible using NI VISA to realize a connection between Texas Instruments electronic board and labview? I would like to read the information coming from I/O of the TI board. I am not sure if it is possible to write in TI board too?
My first task is to read the information coming from TI board with labview. Is it possible to view all inputs and outputs (I/O) of TI board and to access the information coming from them?
I believe Dennis_Knutson has answered your question, using NI VISA you will be able to send and receive data via RS 232 port, however, your device TI F283335 should have programmed in firmware to receive and send data via RS 232. If you want to control any lines from that Starter Kit, you could do it only if the firmware on it supports this functionality and sends data further through serial port.
Bottom line, in order to use it with NI VISA, you will first need to implement the functionality on TI F283335 to receive commands via RS 232 and send back the information from the its I/Os.
