General LabVIEW Real-Time Features
Building Real-Time Distributed Systems with the LabVIEW Project
The LabVIEW Project is a new development feature designed to help you easily manage real-time applications. A LabVIEW Project will display the host and all real-time targets within your system, so you can organize your source code and build specifications. You now can open and run code on different targets simultaneously to debug your application quickly. To quickly build a LabVIEW Real-Time project, use the Real-Time Project Wizard to dynamically generate code based on proven architectures.

Precise Software Timing with LabVIEW Real-Time
LabVIEW 7.1 introduced the Timed Loop to easily create multirate real-time applications. LabVIEW 8 then built upon the technology by introduced by the LabVIEW timed structures by adding support for individually timed frames with microsecond deadlines. View the resources below to learn how these timing structures can be used to create precise software timing, then see how the Execution Trace Tool can verify those timing conditions are met.
