how to use sbRIO-9607 on-board USB port in RealTime VI




I am new to RIO programming and  would like to use the on-board USB port on a sbRIO-9607 to acquire data in a Real Time VI. Do I have to use VISA in Realtime? or do I have to use FPGA programming

It might help to clarify what you are trying to connect through the usb port. Have you seen this article?


Yes, usually you talk to it through VISA.

I would like add more on the topic.  I have a IMU sesnor that gives output as a JSON string. I have done the application on PC and it was easy to use a COM port for VISA resource. Now, I have the sensor connected to USB of sbRIO. 


Devices and Interfaces under sbRIO displays Com ports which I don't understand as to how I should use it. Although there are limited number of com ports on sbRIO, I see 8. And how can I see the ports in VISA resource drop down box. FOor the moment I would like to just check if I am able to read data from the sensor.

Hi nano,


I did some shell tests on the sbRIO according to NI documents and found out that RT OS is able to detect it and it is a CDC-ACM class.
