Hi Mark,

If I would like to use the embedded Windows processor, should I use the existing Windows XP as the host platform and install EPICS base, ASYN, then somehow manage to write a driver for my AI/AO card, and use it in tandem with ASYN?

Or Linux will be a more suitable system?

The thing is that I have all the drivers installed (including the NI 6070E boards) on my embedded Windows controller, because it was in operation some time ago (using NI LabView), but now it's just doing nothing, awaiting the recycling bin.
I am just new to embedded devices like this.

What would you recommend?
Thanks.

Hi Pavel,

 

Yes, you should be able to do that.

 

One of the devices I support is the XIA xMAP, which is a PXI digital x-ray spectroscopy card.  It can be run either from an embedded Windows processor like you have, or from a separate PC with a National Instruments PCI to PXI link adapter.

You would need to write the driver for your AI/AO cards, but National Instruments should give you a C/C++ callable library to do that.

Dear all,


I have found an old NI PXI chassis in our lab with the following configuration:

Chassis: NI PXI 1000
Embedded controller: NI PXI-8106
Cards: NI MIO 6070E (AI/AO modules, 3 pcs)

The embedded controller is running Windows XP Professional National Instruments.
Is there any chance to save the device and run EPICS on it?
