FPGA Interface C API

The FPGA Interface C API helps you use LabVIEW to program the NI hardware FPGA and choose LabVIEW or C/C++ tools to program the system processor.
The FPGA Interface C API is add-on software for the NI-RIO driver that enables communication between the processor and the user-programmable FPGA within NI reconfigurable I/O (RIO) hardware such as CompactRIO modules, CompactRIO Single-Board Controllers, FlexRIO devices, multifunction reconfigurable I/O devices, and MXI-Express RIO accessories for embedded control and acquisition applications.
