Abstract: Real-time Linux is a set of extensions to the kernel that provides hard real-time functionality with low, bounded latencies and deterministic response. The main methods for communicating between kernel space and user space are fifos and shared memory. LabVIEW is the well-known commercial product for developing control systems and engineering applications. This paper, presents the fifos and shared memory virtual interface (VIs) that allow LabVIEW to communicate and share (bulk) data with the real-time core.
