This page contains examples of communicating with FTDI devices through the D2XX drivers and FTD2XX.DLL using LabVIEW.
Please note that at this time, FTDI run LabVIEW 7.1. This restricts our LabVIEW example compatibility to LabVIEW 7.0 and LabVIEW 7.1. Developers using earlier versions of LabVIEW can download screen shots of our LabVIEW example block diagrams here.
NOTE: FTDI’s D2XX drivers must be installed for the VIs to run.
D2XX Function Archive
Many of the D2XX functions have been interfaced to LabVIEW in this ZIP archive. The VIs contained in the archive interface to the most common functions used in the D2XX DLL. They can be wired up to like a standard VI for use with LabVIEW 7.0 or later, .
