NI-DAQmx Base offers a subset of NI-DAQmx functionality on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Windows Mobile, and Windows CE OSs. Application development is simple, using the clean, concise programming interface, programmatic channel and task creation, and tight integration with NI LabVIEW. This driver software includes ready-to-use LabVIEW VIs and C function examples similar to those included in the full-featured NI-DAQmx software.
National Instruments recommends developers creating applications for Windows and Linux-based systems to instead use the full-featured NI-DAQmx distribution. Click here to learn more about NI-DAQmx compatibility with LabVIEW and Windows.
