Introducing picoG, a free (open source) tool for deploying G Dataflow (LabVIEW) code to microcontrollers!
Now, you can use the free NI G Web Development Software Community Edition (formerly LabVIEW NXG Web Module) to deploy G code to a RaspberryPi Pico microcontroller! picoG uses a port of the NI Vireo open source runtime engine for (a subset of) LabVIEW.
Today picoG supports the RPi Pico and, with your help, we can expand it to other great targets like ESP32s and the new Pi Zero 2 W!
I’ve been using LabVIEW for ~25 years and while I’ve written a book, started a company, and created many tools/applications in LabVIEW; I still have a lot I’d like to learn and accomplish. I love the LabVIEW community of scientists, engineers, and other tech types who are trying to make a positive difference and work together for the benefit of everyone!
After nearly a decade working at Alliance Partners, these days Derrick is working as a Technical Support Engineer at NI. His hobbies include breaking LabVIEW and tinkering with too many side projects from the web to robotics to gardening to baking.
