LabVIEW on embedded PC's

Hi,
Is there anyone who has experience with running LabVIEW applications (*.exe)
on embedded PC's.
The application will be developed on LV 6i, and it will utilize SQL, netDDE
or Data Socket.
Are there any known issues or limitations I should be aware of ?
Any input is appreciated.

Be sure to get a board with enough RAM to run your app and enough
Flash/disk space to store the OS, LV Run Time Engine and your exe.

I build an embedded solution using Labview apps on Linux. The main reasons
why you will need enough FLASH or HD is the X Windows display that you will
need to have your apps running (even if you're not using any screen
directly connect to the PC).

Even if it's an embedded solution you will still need the Graphical
environment. Labview does not seem to be fully ready for Embedded
solutions. Anyway, the spaces needed on the flash (static memory, it can be
a HD) will be mostly to manage the graphical environment and the librarys
needed for your VISA or GPIB or any other specific hardware.

If you have any specific question I'll be glade to help (if I can).

Hi Yves!

I know that the date of your answer is 2001 but I hope you can answer me!

I am trying to run a headless vi (exe) on embedded PC that works over Linux.
This PC is TS5500 Technology Systems, and my problem is that this PC hasn't graphic card, so I can't use an X server and I can't run my vi (exe). Do you know if there is any alternative solution?

Your answer will be enormously useful for me!

Thanks in advanced!

LabVIEW on Unix can't currently run without X Windows although word has
it that NI thinks this is a lack of feature. But the priority on LabVIEW
development is on other things so it may still be some time before
LabVIEW can run really without X Windows for UI less applications.

You can install a reduced X Windows environment without actual graphics
driver
s or with a text output backend and then LabVIEW will happily run
on that platform.

Hi:

Try reading the last couple of sections of Gary Johnson's and Richard Jennings book LabVIEW Graphical Programming 3rd edition. They outline running LabVIEW on Linux on a PC-104 form factor. Excellent information!
