National Instruments LabVIEW
What is National Instruments LabVIEW?
National Instruments (NI) LabVIEW is a software program that is generally utilized in the engineering field for developing applications. LabVIEW (Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Engineering Workbench) provides a working environment for NI’s Visual Programming Language (VPL), “G.”
The VPL development environment allows engineers and other developers to create applications through graphical elements, as opposed to developing applications or programs through text codes. The VPL “G” is a dataflow programming language that uses blocks connected by wires to create a visual representation of the block diagram, otherwise known as LV-code. The development cycle for the Virtual Instrument (VI) consists of 3 parts: the block diagram, created through the VPL; the front panel, which is a user interface created by the developer; and the connector panel.
On the front panel, the developer is able to show data gathered from bus sensor analyses and signal processing, allowing for report generation and data logging. The software also allows for testing of products and validation of results, controlling multiple instruments simultaneously and re-use of codes without the need for modifications.
Supported operating systems are Windows, Linxu and Mac OS X.
