To give users accelerated virtual instruments (VIs) that encapsulate measurement functions and run on PDAs and FPGAs, LabView 7 Express from National Instruments Inc. (NI) simplifies creation of measurement and automation applications. This extends LabView to more settings, including embedded field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and Palm OS and Microsoft Pocket PC personal digital assistants (PDAs).

 

Express VIs encapsulate measurement functions in interactive virtual instruments for common measurement and automation applications. More than 40 Express VIs streamline development for tasks ranging from data acquisition to signal analysis to file I/O, delivering advanced measurement functions in easily configured dialogs requiring little or no programming.

 

To redefine and accelerate how users take measurements and analyze data, LabView 7 Express has a redesigned NI-DAQ (data acquisition system) driver framework and two new interactive assistants for data acquisition and instrument control. For computer-based acquisition systems, the DAQ Assistant helps users configure and define sophisticated acquisition tasks in just a few clicks.

 

For GPIB, serial, VXI, and other traditional instruments, users can employ the Instrument I/O Assistant to prototype instrument control systems; take quick measurements; and even develop simple instrument drivers.

 

LabView 7 Express also includes the LabView base, full and professional development systems, and the following add-on modules: new FPGA module for developing applications to run on FPGAs on NI's reconfigurable I/O hardware; new PDA module for creating portable, handheld measurement and control applications on Microsoft Pocket PC or Palm OS PDAs; upgraded real-time module for developing deterministic, real-time, and embedded control applications; and upgraded Datalogging and Supervisory Control module for developing distributed monitoring and control applications. www.ni.com

 

  • Fastest development with interactive configuration and graphical programming

  • Tightest integration of real world I/O, measurement analysis, and data presentation

  • Most flexible engineering tool from desktop to handheld and embedded devices
