Software on SystemDesigner Devices

Version:
    Last Modified: September 26, 2017

    Adding software to a target device on the Design view specifies where the software executes at run time. Targeting software to a specific device also provides information about the hardware configuration of the target where the software executes.

    You can add two types of software components directly to a device in SystemDesigner: an application and a library.

    • Application—A program designed to perform a group of coordinated functions, tasks, or activities.
    • Library—A collection of source files, such as VIs, type definitions, palette files, and other files.

    You can add an application or library to a specific target by clicking Add software on the device on the Design view, or by dragging a component from the Project Files pane onto a device.

    If a file or component is not on a specific target device, it executes on the development system. This is the same as a VI running normally in a project on your computer using the live hardware in your system.

    To view every target device in your system and the software on each target, select Software from the Table view drop-down menu.
