RTI DDS Toolkit for LabVIEW 2018 - New Release Available in the VIPM

Based on the latest version of Connext DDS (5.3.1), the 2.2.0 release of the RTI DDS Toolkit for LabVIEW includes enhanced functionality and usability for distributing real-time data between National Instruments LabVIEW® Virtual Instruments and with applications that communicate using the DDS standard.  Details of the improvements in the 2.2.0 release are described in the Release Notes.

The RTI DDS Toolkit is included with LabVIEW 2018 and can be installed through the VI Package Manager.  View the Getting Started Guide to begin.

The RTI DDS Toolkit is supported on Windows systems running LabVIEW 2015 SP1 (32-bit) and higher and can be used with NI CompactRIO 906x and 903x series embedded controllers running NI Linux 3 on 32-bit ARMv7 and 64-bit Intel CPUs.  Refer to the Release Notes for more information.

The RTI Connext Tools are indispensable in the development, troubleshooting, and administration of DDS systems, and they are fully compatible with the RTI DDS Toolkit for LabVIEW.  Download the Free Trial of RTI Connext DDS Professional to try them with DDS applications in LabVIEW.

I am unable to install this on an IC-3120 (NI Linux on Intel 64bit).  I am able to install 2.0.0 but not this version.  It appears that details in the xml manifest don't enable Max to install it on an IC target.

Any help would be appreciated, as we are currently experiencing mory leaks in 2.0.0

IC boards are not officially supported by RTI. That means that RTI has not tested the DDS Toolkit on it and cannot guarantee it works. However, that doesn't mean it won't work. just it has not been tested.

Try modifying the rtilvdds-linux-x64intel.cdf file in the folder <LabVIEW installation>\RT Images\RTI DDS Toolkit\<RTI DDS Toolkit version> to make it work. Just add another DEVICECLASS field with value IndustrialController. Like this:

<DEVICECLASS VALUE="IndustrialController"/>

in the IMPLEMENTATION section. So will look like this:

[...] 
<IMPLEMENTATION>
<DEVICECLASS VALUE="IndustrialController"/>
<DEVICECLASS VALUE="cRIO" />
[...]

And as far as you have NI Linux (64 bits) on your board NI MAX will allow you to install it. Please note that you do this at your own risk and RTI doesn't provide any support or warranty.

Hi Bruce

Did you manage to install the Toolkit on the IC-3120? Does it work fine?
