Using PCIe-6363 and USB-845x

Solved!

Hi, 

 

I'm trying to use PCIe-6363 and a I2C interface in a project. I'm new to DAQ and has the following questions.

 

Is it possible to control both the PCIe-6363 and the USB-845x by one visual studio C++ program?

 

Does USB-845x not included in the DAQmx simulated devices? I cannot find it in the list when I want to simulate the device.

 

Is there any examples for one program (C++ or Labview) controlling both a DAQ board and a I2C interface? 

And any examples about USB-845x?

 

Thanks,

Eric

The USB-845x is not a DAQmx device.  It uses its own driver (NI-845x Driver Software).  I don't think there is a simulated option for the USB-845x.

Thank you very much Crossrulz.

 

So do you know can I use one visual studio C++ program to control both the PCIe-6363 and USB-845x?

If not, will one labview program do the job instead?

 

Thx.

I'm not a C++ expert, but I am certain you can control both in a single program.  I do similar in LabVIEW all the time.

Thanks a lot for your reply and for the information.

 

Are there any examples of using or programming the USB-845x?  (either in c++ or labview)

Please refer to LabVIEW example finder

845x driver is a c dll and I don't think it natively supports C++
C programming examples available at "C:\Users\Public\Documents\National Instruments\NI-845x\Examples"

For this folder to populate you have install 845x support for C.
