Compiling a Custom FPGA VI into a Bitfile

Last Modified: November 16, 2020

Prepare to use your FPGA VI in an FPGA target by compiling the VI into a bitfile.

Before you begin, create a customized FPGA VI. FPGA VIs define the analog, digital, and pulse width modulation (PWM) inputs and outputs of an FPGA target. A bitfile contains the information that FPGA targets need to function as the FPGA VI specifies.

For more information on compiling FPGA VIs, refer to the LabVIEW Help by selecting Help»LabVIEW Help in LabVIEW.

  1. Open LabVIEW.
  2. In Project Explorer, right-click the FPGA VI, and select Compile.
The compiler places the bitfile in an FPGA Bitfiles subdirectory relative to the project file directory. By default, the bitfile name is <name of project>_<name of FPGA VI>.lvbitx. After creating a bitfile, create an FPGA configuration file.
