The National Instruments LabWindows/CVI Real-Time Module extends the LabWindows/CVI development environment to create reliable and deterministic applications that target dedicated real-time hardware. National Instruments provides a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) platform for real-time application development by combining flexible, high-performance software with rugged, modular hardware.

Rapid Development
Quickly create real-time applications from the familiar NI LabWindows/CVI integrated development environment and continue to take advantage of a comprehensive ANSI development workspace that incorporates test- and control-specific libraries, including hardware libraries, comprehensive analysis and PID algorithms, and communication and threading utilities.

Distributed Deployment
Automatically deploy your real-time applications over Ethernet to distributed targets running a real-time OS that ensures reliable and deterministic behavior. LabWindows/CVI works with COTS hardware, specifically PXI and PC targets, so you do not need to design and maintain proprietary hardware.

Tight I/O Integration
Use full-featured hardware drivers and LabWindows/CVI function panels to integrate diverse I/O such as analog, digital, dynamic signal acquisition, CAN, benchtop instruments, and high-accuracy modular instruments with your real-time applications.

PID Control Toolkit Included
Take advantage of the PID Control Toolkit in the LabWindows/CVI Real-Time Module to add sophisticated control algorithms to your application.
