Follow these simple steps to go from powering on your hardware to building a completely custom, software-designed instrument.
Start here to learn how to program your VST with different software options, install the software, plug in your hardware, and run a simple loop-back test.
Each VST software option includes a host interface for programmatic access and a precompiled FPGA so you can get up and running quickly. Learn about the different methods of writing desktop applications for your VST.
Completely customize hardware behavior and optimize it for your application with the open FPGA on your VST. Check out in-depth details on programming your VST FPGA, ready-to-run examples that extend basic VST functionality, and application IP that you can add to your VST design.
Customize your VST FPGA with help from several additional NI products and services, including products and consulting services from NI Alliance Partners, accelerated cloud-based FPGA compilation, and instructor-led training.
After installing the software in Step 1, you can find additional resources for your hardware under Start»All Programs»National Instruments»Vector Signal Transceivers. You can also access resources online.
