    You can interact with faded items while using Focus.

  • In the System Definition pane, right-click an item and select Locate in System Explorer to navigate to the place in System Explorer where that item is configured.

XNET Status Channels

Monitor the XNET bus statuses for CAN, LIN, and FlexRay from VeriStand. In System Explorer, right-click an XNET port and select Add Port Specific Channels to add status channels to the system definition.

FMU Fixed Parameters

Set initial values for Functional Mockup Unit (FMU) initialization parameters during deployment through a text file. You can also set fixed parameter values before running a deployed model.

FPGA Add-on Custom Device

Use the FPGA Add-on custom device to run an FPGA bitfile without implementing the normal VeriStand FPGA template. The add-on allows the transfer of basic scalar data types inline with VeriStand's primary control loop (PCL) and supports reading and writing waveforms with FPGA DMA channels. You can access this custom device from GitHub.

Instrument Add-on Custom Device

Use the Instrument Add-on custom device to communicate with instrumentation, such as power supplies, environmental chambers, and emissions equipment, over various protocols. The device supports serial, GPIB (using NI VISA), ethernet (TCP, UDP, and NI VISA), AK serial, and AK TCP. You can access this custom device from GitHub.
