1. FPGA Interface C API
With the FPGA Interface C API, engineers and scientists can program the real-time processor on NI FPGA-based hardware using C tools such as NI LabWindows™/CVI, Microsoft Visual Studio, or Wind River Workbench and interface to the LabVIEW FPGA code running on the FPGA. Developers also can program the processor using the LabVIEW Real-Time Module, which includes tools for low-level system debugging and precision execution timing for increased flexibility and functionality of deterministic real-time applications.

The FPGA Interface C API includes nearly all the same functionality as the existing LabVIEW host interface, including the ability to read and write FPGA front panel controls, target-to-host and host-to-target DMA streaming, and IRQ assertion and acknowledgement.
