I want to connect labview to a hardware device.

What are the pre-requisites that I should do before being able to connect to hardware?

Hi neha,


you need to know the interface to your device (with terms like analog, digital, serial, protocol, …)!

Best regards,

You'll need (at least) a connection (cable or wireless), that is supported by the PC (assuming you want to connect to a PC, not to yourself) and the hardware.


Although technically connected even if you don't use it, to be useful, you'll also need a way to make the software use it. Like a driver, new or existing.


The question is very broad. You'll get broad answers. Connection a keyboard is different from connecting a SDR, a motor or a nuclear reactor...
