simulation of an PCI-MIO-16XE 4

Hello,

Is there any possible way to simulate a DAQ-card in such a way that I'm able
to do the programming at home and execute this at work.
Some explanation of my problem (it might help to understand my question)

- At work most of the time I'm using LabView to initialise, read etc. from
my DAQ-card. When I trie to improve the program (put some filtering on top
of the collected data etc.) I can't test it because LabView generates a
alarm message that no DAQ-card is installed....

What's the best option?

Anyone a suggestion e.g. scan the parrallel port, or perhaps my sound card??
(Drivers??)

Well, this must be enough to think about. Please help me out..

Boozz.

Any chance to dial-up network with the computer at work and use Remote DAQ
or VI Server to run DAQ VIs on the computer at work?

Hi,

I've some suggestions:

Filt
ering should be a sub-vi. You can feed it prerecorded data without
using the main program.

Rewrite your program at home and replace inputs to DAQ with indicators
and outputs with constants. There is no boolean for 'fake hardware
existance'...

The best option is to ask your boss for a DAQ card if he/she wants you to
work at home.
(A few days work are more expensive than a MIO-board....)
alternatives are:
Using remot
e DAQ (via the network).
Generate some test stuff in a 'debug' mode using the signal generation VI's.

Thanx all of you for these answers, (that includes Johannes and jean-pierre)

I think i'm going to build some kind of vi that looks like AI-wave.vi (see
2-channel oscilloscope from the solutions gallery). In stead of using my
hardware I will place some kind of signal generation vi.
