I have a PXI-7841R FPGA device, LabVIEW 2019 installed, and NI says at Compatibility between Xilinx Compilation Tools and NI FPGA Hardware - NI that requires the Xilinx Compilation Tool for ISE 14.7. It also says that Module Xilinx Compilation Tool for ISE 14.7 is not supported on Windows_10.
Our IT will not allow me to use Windows_7. Does someone have a work-around? If I upgrade LabVIEW would there be a solution?
Thank you in advance for your insight.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you have an active SSP, you can use the NI online compile server.
That is a great idea. Thank you for bringing it up. Our IT does not allow us to use that service at this time.
If your IT does not allow you to use NI online compile service, you may be cornered to setting up your own FPGA compile farm on Linux on a local server.
Santhosh, That is another great idea. I will consider it once I have exhausted all more straight forward options though, as I would have to get IT involved.
This version of ISE supports all Xilinx devices. For more information, visit the ISE Design Suite.
So this could work, but when I run the installer it says it is going to install a virtual machine. Will the NI FPGA compile worker know how to access it?
We are using Virtual Machines with Windows 7 for this purpose. Don't know if that's allowed by your IT.
You could then either develop in the VM, or just use this as compile server.
Thank you Dan,
This is what we should do indeed, setup a compile server.
But after thinking a lot about this, and to keep things simple, I will replace the 7841R with a 7846R: The 7846R compiles in Windows10 with LabVIEW 2019 and the "LabVIEW 2019 FPGA Module Xilinx Compilation Tool for Vivado": So no need to authorize and setup a compile server for now.
This tool made me realize that different FPGA cards may require different compile tools:
