PXI FPGA Peripheral Modules by National Instruments are meant to be used in LabView even without any previous knowledge of Hardware Description Languages (HDL) and let users to hardware-accelerate their own test and measurement setups. However, designers fluent in HDL languages avoid such closed technology targets due to impossibility to include third-party designs or the needed over-effort to implement large and complex architectures into it, such as soft-core based systems. In this paper a partially automated workflow to benefit of the PXI environment allowing advanced HDL engineers to implement complex architectures is presented with reference to two successful use-case examples.
