Creating First Program with myRIO, Creating First Program using myRIO, First Program with myRIO, myRIO programming, myRIO programming, programming with myRIOHello everyone! I hope you all will be absolutely fine and having fun. Today, I am going to share my knowledge about Creating First Program with myRIO. Before doing anything on NI myRIO you must know that how to configure this device. So, before going into the details of this tutorial I would like to suggest you to must visit Getting Started with myRIO and How to Configure myRIO on WiFi for the better understanding of this tutorial.

NI myRIO is an amazing processing tool that has a very high processing speed as compared to other microcontroller e.g. Arduino, raspberry pi, gellilio etc. So, it can be used for the real time projects where there is need to respond very quickly according to the assigned tasks. NI myRIO was launched by National Instrument. It has different models. In this tutorial I am going to use NI myRIO. This module has a built-in Wifi as well as USB cable supported. The device has its own IP address which helps while configuring it. If we want tmo connect it over internet then the IP address changes to access the device online. It operates on 667MHz. It’s a fully secured device with a strong casing around the circuitry. There are on board four LED lights on NI myRIO for the configuration test, whether the device is properly attached to the computer or not.

Here, in the tutorial Creating First Program with myRIO, I will tell you the step by step procedure for creating your first program using NI myRIO. The tutorials basically focuses on controlling an LED on Front Panel with the help of the on board button on the device.

  • You can download the complete Virtual Instrument (VI) for controlling LED using on board button here by clicking on the button below.
  • Download .rar file, extract it and enjoy the LabVIEW NI myRIO’s simulation.

So, that is all from the tutorial Creating First Program with myRIO. I hope you enjoyed this first project with myRIO. You should also have a look at these LabView Projects. If you find any sort of problem, you can ask in comments anytime without even feeling any kind of hesitation. I will try my level best to solve your issues in a better way, if possible. In my next tutorial I will elaborate that how to control the servo motor using NI LabVIEW and NI myRIO. I will further explore NI LabVIEW and NI myRIO in my later tutorials. So, till then, Take Care 🙂
