LIFA Replaced with LINX!

LINX has officially replaced LIFA!



Upgrade to LINX by following the Getting Started with LINX tutorial here and join us in the LINX forums.


LINX includes all of the features of LIFA as well as:

  • Firmware wizard to automatically deploy firmware (no more building from source...unless you want to)
  • Support for many more sensors
  • Support for more devices (not Just Arduino Uno and Mega)
    • You can now deploy LINX code to run headlessly on the NI myRIO.
  • Wifi and Ethernet support on select devices
  • Fully open source and hosted on GitHub

What is the LabVIEW Interface for Arduino Toolkit?


The LabVIEW Interface for Arduino (LIFA) Toolkit is a FREE download that allows developers to acquire data from the Arduino microcontroller and process it in the LabVIEW Graphical Programming environment. You can purchase the Arduino Uno bundled with a LabVIEW Student Edition DVD from Sparkfun Electronics.



For more information, check out the Getting Started with the LabVIEW Interface Toolkit video tutorial from VI Shots, or view our Software Installation and Hardware Setup Procedure.
