DDS Toolkit for LabVIEW

RTI Tools-DDS Toolkit for LabVIEW

RTI_Launcher_Icon_Set-Ecosystem-LabVIEW_90x90_1118RTI DDS Toolkit for LabVIEW is our plugin to the LabVIEW™ graphical programming environment from NI (formerly National Instruments). The RTI toolkit effectively allows LabVIEW to be used as a programming language binding for RTI Connext (based on the DDSTM standard), a la C, C++, Simulink, etc. The RTI toolkit can be used to distribute data between LabVIEW applications (called "Virtual Instruments" or VIs) as well as between LabVIEW VIs and DDS applications written in other programming languages.

Labview_Image_V2Efficient Data Distribution: RTI DDS Toolkit enables NI LabVIEW integration with various applications.

The toolkit is built on RTI Connext Secure and includes support for DDS Security. It provides a mapping of the Data Distribution Service (DDS) Application Programming Interface (API) to LabVIEW subVIs (blocks in a LabVIEW block diagram). It also includes LabVIEW panels for configuration and administration. It does not include libraries for other programming languages, infrastructure services or RTI tools. These require a separate license to RTI Connext Professional or Connext Secure. The toolkit is distributed as a binary on the LabVIEW Tools Network.

The toolkit is licensed under a LabVIEW-specific Non-Commercial License. Under this license:

  • Users can develop and deploy non-commercial applications at no charge. Research and academic use will generally qualify as non-commercial.
  • Users who don't qualify as non-commercial can evaluate the toolkit for 30 days.
  • Users doing commercial development must have a commercial Connext Professional or Connext Secure license–that is, they count toward the overall developer count of the project.
