Executing Simulations in Real Time (Control Design and Simulation Module)
You can use the LabVIEW Control Design and Simulation Module with the LabVIEW Real-Time Module and various National Instruments real-time (RT) targets to implement simulations and controllers in real time with real-world inputs and outputs. For example, you can combine this software and hardware to design and implement a rapid control prototype (RCP) or hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) configuration. You configure the timing Simulation Loop according to the needs of the simulation.
The Control Design and Simulation Module can execute VIs on hardware targets running the real-time operating system (RTOS) of the Ardence Phar Lap Embedded Tool Suite (ETS) or Wind River VxWorks.
|Note The Control Design and Simulation Module supports only ETS and VxWorks targets with at least 32 MB of RAM.|
The Real-Time Module includes the Getting Started with the LabVIEW Real-Time Module manual, which introduces the concepts necessary to create real-time applications. The Real-Time Module documentation also includes topics about organizing and managing projects, creating deterministic applications, and sharing data in deterministic applications.
