The combination of NI LabVIEW software, instrument drivers, and connectivity hardware is the most productive, flexible approach to automating third-party instrumentation.
Develop measurement systems faster with LabVIEW through its graphical system design approach. LabVIEW is a single environment that connects to third-party instrumentation and provides extensive libraries for signal processing and data visualization. Use LabVIEW to program the specific needs of your application and don’t be bound by the limited functionality provided by vendor-defined software.

NI heavily invests in developing hardware drivers to supply seamless integration into multiple programming environments and across multiple types of hardware devices and instruments. They are optimized to offer maximum I/O throughput with a high-level API and work well in a parallel, multithreaded environment.
As a leading GPIB vendor for more than 30 years, NI delivers highly reliable and stable hardware connectivity products and the de facto industry standard programming interface for GPIB communication. Innovative NI GPIB hardware and NI-488.2 driver technologies give you better performance and maximized reliability for connecting to third-party instrumentation.
If NI GPIB is not the right hardware connectivity for your instrument control system, rest assured that you have the freedom and flexibility to choose the right hardware connectivity to meet your application’s needs. In addition to GPIB compatibility, LabVIEW can integrate with any instrument bus including USB, Ethernet, serial, LXI, PCI, and PXI.
