  • © National Instruments Corporation1-1 1,Target Distribution 1, Guide1Distributing Your Embedded Target and LabVIEWThe LabVIEW Embedded Development Module enables OEMs and advanced users to port LabVIEW to embedded devices from any manufacturer. LabVIEW refers to these embedded devices as targets. Typical targets contain 32-bit microcontrollers with an embedded operating system and 256 KB RAM or more. After you create a new target and port LabVIEW to support that target, you can use LabVIEW to develop embedded applications and make LabVIEW and your target available for other end users. This document describes other things you might want to do after you port LabVIEW to a new target to increase the usability of your target in LabVIEW. This document assumes you are familiar with LabVIEW and the Embedded Development Module.For information about porting LabVIEW to your target, refer to the LabVIEW Embedded Development Module Porting Guide, available by selecting Start»All Programs»National Instruments»LabVIEW»LabVIEW Manuals and opening EMB_Porting_Guide.pdf. Distribution OptionsThe process of distributing your target and LabVIEW can be minor or extensive, depending on your business need. You might zip up the VIs you create or modify for your target, write some documentation about how to use your target with LabVIEW, and email the zip file and documentation to a few associates. The associates must have a licensed version of the LabVIEW Embedded Development Module to use the VIs with your target. The other end of the distribution spectrum includes obtaining an agreement from National Instruments to bundle and resell LabVIEW and your target. This document guides you through the process of creating a product for your target that you can bundle with LabVIEW and resell to end users.
