VeriStand supports NI-XNET devices, NI-DAQ devices, and NI FPGA targets.
For the best performance, use NI-DAQ devices that support hardware-timed single point (HWTSP)
I/O or on-demand sampling. Refer to DAQ Devices with
Hardware-Timed Single Point Sampling Mode Support for a list of NI-DAQ
devices that support HWTSP I/O. Refer to the custom device’s GitHub repository for a
list of supported modules.
VeriStand does not support HWTSP on cRIOs
with DAQmx, such as 904x and 905x. For single-point I/O on these devices, use the
& EtherCAT custom device. Refer to the custom device’s GitHub repository for a list of supported modules.

1 Refer to the FPGA Targets with Built-in Support section for a
list of NI FPGA targets for which VeriStand provides bitfiles
and FPGA configuration files.
Device support for PWM I/O includes:
- Generating pulses—If HWTSP sample mode is enabled (default) for a counter output
channel, only X Series PCI and PXI devices support
generating pulses with that channel. However, if that
property is disabled for a Counter Output (CO) channel,
all DAQ devices support generating pulses.
- Measuring pulses—Only X Series PCI and PXI devices
support measuring pulses with counter input channels.
VeriStand supports deploying a project to the following
- PXI/PCI—Any PXI controller with at least 256 MB of RAM.
- CompactRIO/Single-Board RIO—Any CompactRIO or Single-Board RIO device with
at least 128 MB of RAM.
- Desktop PC—Any PC running Windows 7, Vista, XP Service Pack 3 or later,
Server 2003 R2 (32-bit), or Server 2008 R2 (64-bit).
Targets with Built-in Support
VeriStand ships with bitfiles and FPGA
configuration files for the following FPGA targets:
- NI cRIO-9103
The files provided for the NI cRIO-9103 are configured for the NI 9215,
NI 9263, NI 9411, and NI 9474 I/O modules.
- NI PXI/PCI-7811R
- NI PXI/PCI-7813R
- NI PXI/PCI-7831R
- NI PXI/PCI-7833R
- NI PXI/PCIe-7841R
- NI PXI/PCIe-7842R
- NI PXI/PCIe-7851R
- NI PXI/PCIe-7852R
- NI PXI-7853R
- NI PXI-7854R
All bitfiles use direct memory access (DMA) to transfer data.
