Thanks Brandon,

I'm going to play with it in Labview then.

Cheers,

So I'm downloading all three update files and the file names are identical...

Yes, it is rather confusing. They'll be named less ambiguously for the next release.

 

If you want everything, you just need the "NI-VirtualBench Driver" installer (the 192MB one); it includes the VirtualBench Application and the VirtualBench run-time libraries.

Hello William,

 

How does it look like with new version which supports UART analysis? Thanks

Device API changes

  • Added C API.

 

I would like to point out that a VirtualBench enthusiast created Python bindings for our C API!  You can find the work in an open source project here: https://github.com/armstrap/armstrap-pyvirtualbench.  Feel free to try it out and see what experiences you have.  The brevity of Python combined with the ease-of-use of VirtualBench make a really compelling experience.  As an example from https://github.com/armstrap/armstrap-pyvirtualbench/blob/master/examples/dmm_example.py.

 

from pyvirtualbench import PyVirtualBench, PyVirtualBenchException, DmmFunction

# This examples demonstrates how to make measurements using the Digital
# Multimeter (DMM) on a VirtualBench.

try:
    virtualbench = PyVirtualBench('myVirtualBench')
    dmm = virtualbench.acquire_digital_multimeter();
    dmm.configure_measurement(DmmFunction.DC_VOLTS, True, 10.0)

    for i in range(10):
        print("Measurement %d: %f V" % (i, dmm.read()))

    dmm.release()
except PyVirtualBenchException as e:
    print("Error/Warning %d occurred\n%s" % (e.status, e))
finally:
    virtualbench.release()

Both of your links are broken.

 

https://github.com/armstrap/armstrap-pyvirtualbench/blob/master/examples/dmm_example.py

 

and 

 

https://github.com/armstrap/armstrap-pyvirtualbench

 

But also I think what is most interesting is seeing this API being used with a video demonstration here.

Ugh, thanks for that.  Sometimes WYSIWYG editors are too smart for their own good.  Thanks for the link to the video as well!

I request that audio IIS decoding is added also.   

 

Thanks,
