while I usually talk to a bus-full of Tics on RS-485, for once I’d like to talk to a single Tic, direct over USB, from LabVIEW… I could “cheat” and simply call the command line Tic client from LabVIEW, but I was interested in talking direct to the Tic, for speed and neatness.
LabVIEW can see the raw USB device, and I can open a VISA session with it. Then I have the choice of VISA read and write, for bulk endpoints, and VISA Control Out/ Control In, and VISA USB Interrupt handling. -and that’s about all I know! How do I “get the conversation started” with the Tic over USB? Are the bytes I need to send- and receive- the same as those I’m assembling/ decoding in my serial driver?
I’ve always shied away from talking “real” USB (usually they’re just serial converters!), and have little idea how to start; lockdown seems like a good time to give it a go…!
Any help, suggestions, pointers, and advice, gratefully received…!
