Last Modified: March 24, 2021

It is important to plan the major components of a custom device before writing any LabVIEW code.

Before you begin planning, you should understand the custom device framework.
Understand the following components of a custom device.

If the custom device must interact with unsupported or third-party hardware, consider the availability of drivers and other resources to determine the feasibility of the custom device.

Component Description
Channels and waveforms The inputs and outputs of the custom device.
Properties Configuration data for the custom device.
Hierarchy The organization and appearance of the custom device in System Explorer.
Pages The configuration pages that appear in System Explorer.
Device Type The execution mode of the custom device in terms of interaction with the rest of VeriStand.
After planning your custom device, you can implement the custom device.
