Getting Started with chipKIT WF32 and LabVIEW

After about a month of working with the chipKIT WF32 using LabVIEW, it came to my attention that the process to get all of the required software installed and working is not the easiest task in the world.  That’s why I decided to create an Instructable that goes over how to get your chipKIT WF32 up and running with LabVIEW using LabVIEW MakerHub LINX, a package that is used to interact with common embedded platforms like Arduino, chipKIT, and myRIO. My Instructable also contains some resources to help you with the basics of LabVIEW coding.


See my Instructable here.


If you’re interested in LabVIEW programming, check out the LabVIEW Home Bundle.  Digilent also sells the LabVIEW Physical Computing Kit, which includes the LabVIEW Home Bundle and chipKIT WF32.



My in-depth guide goes over installing LabVIEW, installing NI VISA (required for LINX), installing LINX, getting the WiFi or serial connection on the WF32 running, and other useful resources for the basics on LabVIEW programming.


If you’re interested in what kind of things you can do with chipKIT WF32 and LabVIEW, check out the LabVIEW MakerHub website and my other Instructables.


If you have any questions about the installation process, please comment and I should be able to answer your question.  Once you get up and running, check out both the Digilent forums and the LabVIEW MakerHub forums if you have any questions about LabVIEW, LINX, or anything in-between.
