1. NI-DAQ Driver Support
This set of documents show which hardware driver version should be used for a particular data acquisition board on Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X.
NI-DAQmx is National Instruments next-generation version of the NI-DAQ driver with new VIs/functions and development tools for controlling your measurement devices. Please read the DAQ Getting Started Guide for more information.
The NI-DAQmx Base software contains LabVIEW and C Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) which allow you to create applications for your device on Linux, Mac OS X and PDA. NI-DAQmx Base includes a high-level interface for supported DAQ Devices and is a subset of the NI-DAQmx API.
Traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy) is a legacy hardware driver compatible with legacy data acquisition products. Some products supported in Traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy) are also supported by NI-DAQmx. In these cases it is recommended that NI-DAQmx is used.
