# Laboratory Virtual Instrument
Engineering Workbench (LabVIEW) #

You can use Arduino as a Data acquisition device to measure,control,monitor different devices and sensors ,it is easy to learn Graphical programming than normal programming, this Graphical programming takes less time than usual arduino programming.This tutorial is for Beginners of LabVIEW ,

Step 1: Download LabVIEW !!

Go to

and Download the package !

Step 2: Install VISA

The Virtual Instrument Software Architecture (VISA) is a standard for configuring, programming, and troubleshooting instrumentation systems comprising GPIB, VXI, PXI, Serial, Ethernet, and/or USB interfaces. VISA provides the programming interface between the hardware and development environments such as LabVIEW,

Step 3: VI Package Manager

Vi package manger is used to Install/remove add-ons to the NI LabVIEW
A VI package is a single file that is handled automatically by VIPM. This makes sharing LabVIEW code easy with the following added benefits:

Installs the package into LabVIEW seamlessly Handles different versions of LabVIEW with the same package (no need to rebuild)Works with multiple OSs (Windows, Mac, and Linux)Helps you reduce project costs by implementing a code reuse process in your organization Automatically mass compiles your VIs into the version of LabVIEW you are installing the packages into Notifies, downloads, and solves the dependencies for you if a package requires dependencies Helps you get started and directs you to examples and help when a new package is installed..

Once we install VIPM we need to install LabVIEW interface for arduino

Step 4: Keep All These Files Ready Before You Start Installation !

1) LabVIEW.exe

2) Ni-Visa.exe

3) Vipm.exe

4) LabVIEW interface for

Step 5: Steps to Install LabVIEW

Follow all the steps correctly and Install it

Step 6: NI VISA Installation Procedure

Follow all the steps and install it

Step 7: Steps to Install VI Package Manager

Install Arduino support package for LabVIEW

Step 8: After Installation ! Upload LIFA Base to Arduino

Upload LIFA Base program into Arduino using arduino IDE


This is Normal Procedure

Connect your Arduino to computer
Select -com port
Select-board type
Then open LISA base program from drive which you have saved it

and the Upload it to your Arduino !!

Congratulations now your Arduino is ready to accept commands from LabVIEW ,now you can begin with Graphical programming !!

Step 9: LabVIEW VI !!

Open New VI !! you will get front panel and Back panel
now start programming !

I will do one more Instructable for Arduino programming on LabVIEW till then follow me , Thank you
