LV-Link

Use DT USB and PCI data acquisition boards with NI LabVIEW™

NEW: 64-Bit Support!
LV-Link™ is a library of VIs (Virtual Instruments) that enable LabVIEW® programmers to access the data acquisition features of DT-Open Layers-compliant USB and PCI devices. This library is consistent with the design and layout of the LabVIEW DAQmx VIs to speed development time and minimize learning curve issues.

LV-Link provides the ability to measure and control analog I/O, digital I/O, quadrature decoders, and counter/timer signals, and stream data at full-speed. To get up and running quickly, numerous application examples are provided with the software. The source code for the examples is also included so you can easily modify them to speed your development time.
