Combine the power of NI LabVIEW software, IDNet instrument-specific drivers, and NI hardware connectivity to automate third-party instruments and create reusable measurement solutions that you can program and reconfigure to meet your evolving needs.
LabVIEW is graphical system design software that contains the same programming constructs found in most traditional languages including data types, loops, event handling, variables, recursion, and object-oriented programming.
NI offers GPIB and serial solutions ranging from USB to PXI Express form factors as well as Unix-based OS to Windows OS. Because the Virtual Instrument Software Architecture (VISA) defines one API for instrument communication, you can preserve your software investment when you migrate to new interface buses or mixed I/O systems.
Rather than replace your entire instrument control system, you can reuse your existing instrument hardware investment and incrementally upgrade your computer’s processor, monitor, memory, or hard drive to achieve better performance or use cutting-edge PC technologies. To facilitate this, NI gains roadmap insight and provides feedback through a close collaboration with industry leaders to quickly adapt to emerging technology trends.
