PMODs sensors in LabVIEW




I am working on a project for creating Demos using the DSDB and PMODs inputs. The sensors I am using does not show much information how to write/read basic data. I would like to send the data then receive/read the sensor data. See the sensors I am using.

Any information about the routines for reading the sensor would be very useful. I am using LabVIEW and USB-8451 for testing the sensors (I can test the routines using the USB first).


the last tests I have made it gave me much information that did not match when I moving the accelerometer as an example.

Hi @david22,

I personally haven't used the DSDB, since that appears to be NI only board (it doesn't look like Digilent ever sold it), but I know Digilent has made some VIs for a couple of those Pmods (the Pmod ACL2 and the Pmod ALS) which are part of LabVIEW MakerHub's LINX. The Pmod ACL2 and Pmod ALS also have some c++ demos available on their individual Resource Centers (ACL2 and ALS) as well as IP cores for Vivado if you are comfortable working with HDL.

Unfortunately the Pmod GYRO2 has been retired for a few years, so we do not have any existing code examples for using it.

If you have not done so already, you may also try asking on the NI Forums for some more experienced advice as none of the Digilent engineers have much experience with the NI Elvis II board.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
