NI-DAQmx Base

NI-DAQmx™ Base provides a subset of NI-DAQmx functionality for your data acquisition system on Mac OS, Linux, and Windows.
NI-DAQmx Base is driver software that offers a limited subset of NI-DAQmx functionality. It integrates with LabVIEW and provides ready-to-use LabVIEW VIs and C function examples similar to those in full-featured NI-DAQmx software. Designed to allow for LabVIEW development on Mac OS, NI-DAQmx Base can also be installed on Windows and Linux machines so the same code can be used on all three platforms.
