robotics starter kit 1.0

Go to solution



I have the robotics starter kit 1.0 and Labview 2012. I would like to use it custimizing the FPGA, that is not using starter kit VIs directly. I haven´t been able to find an example of this for the starter kit 1.0 and I dont't want to start from scratch.


To clarify my question, I would like to work in an enviroment similar to the one on the left, instead of the one shown on the right, but for the starter kit 1.0




So my question is, where can I find an example of the roaming program for the starter kit 1.0, with an FPGA vi?

I don't have the starter kit 2.0, but you could add an FPGA target to your existing chassis.  You'll need to configure the chassis to be in FPGA mode rather than scan engine.

Certainly as it says "jordankuehn", what you see on the left of the image is a project, that added a FPGA Target (Right click on the chassis >> New >> FPGA Target), which allows you to work in FPGA environment and not in SCAN mode Engine (picture right). Now unfortunately the 2012 version of LabVIEW and the LabVIEW Robotics Module 2012 does NOT contain an example to customize the work with the Starter Kit 1.0, unlike an example to work with the Starter Kit 2.0.


You could do the following: The version of LabVIEW 2010, if it contained an example to customize the features of the Starter Kit 1.0, then you could install the 2010 version of LabVIEW and LabVIEW Robotics and get this example. Or you can see the attachment which is an example, that I have used to work with the Starter Kit 1.0 in LabVIEW 2012.
