Real-Time (RT) programming: Basic procedures

Create a new LabVIEW project for the RT target, use the Academic RIO Device Toolkit and default FPGA personality, and deploy a VI as the start-up application.

The Academic RIO Device Toolkit and default FPGA personality provides a quick and easy path to create complete applications by programming the RT target exclusively. This is a good starting point for those who have LabVIEW experience on the desktop computer because the RT programming techniques are basically the same. The Device Toolkit Express VIs greatly simplify the process to connect external peripherals.
