Is it possible to use an NI-9265 analog output device with a Linux/ARM system running Java code? Is the serial protocol for the device available?
The NI-9265 has to be connected to a cDAQ chasis which is unfortunately supported by Linux as seen by this document below.
Thanks for the response. What about the possibility of getting the low-level serial protocol, which would allow us to build our own USB interface to the device?
Since none of the hardware is supported in Linux, it may be possible to create a serial interface with Linux but you would create all the communications protocols yourself and they would not be supported by National Instruments. Other members of the community have done similar things with Windows Operating Systems. I have attached white papers and examples below for those below.

Thanks for your help. We're okay with writing our own serial interface, but what we need is the established protocol for the device, i.e., what commands can be sent to the device and what are the expected responses, and what is the exact format for each.
Is this something that NI would make available?
