The National Instruments team is pleased to announce the availability of NI-845x. This software is required to use the NI USB-8451 and NI USB-8452 I2C and SPI interfaces.

New Features and Changes from Previous Release

The following changes were made to version 19.0 of the NI-845x software compared to NI-845x 18.0:
- New Feature: Added support for installation through NI Package Manager.
- New Feature: Added support for LabVIEW 2019.
- Change: Removed support for LabVIEW 2015.

The I�C/SPI Interface Device is a master or slave interface for inter-integrated circuit (I�C) or SCSI Parallel Interface (SPI) devices. With plug-and-play USB connectivity, the I�C/SPI Interface Device is a portable solution to communicate with consumer electronics and integrated circuits. The I�C/SPI Interface Device can be physically located more closely to I�C/SPI devices than PCI interfaces, reducing I�C bus length and minimizing noise problems. The I�C/SPI Interface Device supports I�C rates up to 250 kHz and SPI rates up to 50 MHz, and it also includes eight general-purpose digital I/O lines for a variety of applications, such as configuring the address of I�C devices or toggling LEDs.
