New Labview release delivers distributed intelligence for design, control and test
2 November 2005, Test & Measurement

National Instruments has released a major upgrade to the Labview graphical development platform that helps improve the productivity of engineers in design, control and test.

Labview 8 introduces distributed intelligence - a powerful suite of new capabilities for engineers and scientists to easily design, distribute and synchronise intelligent devices and systems. Labview 8 also features a new project-based environment for developing and managing large-scale applications as well as the latest in Express technology for simplified instrument control.

The new release also includes significant updates to the Labview Real-Time Module, Labview FPGA Module, Labview PDA Module and Labview Datalogging and Supervisory Control Module.

"For nearly 20 years, Labview has become the pre-eminent solution for instrumentation system design offering unparalleled productivity to engineers and scientists," said James Truchard, NI president and CEO. "With the release of Labview 8, National Instruments expands the platform even further to increase productivity for a broader range of applications and technologies, including heterogeneous test systems, rapid system prototyping, full-scale system automation and embedded realtime, FPGA and microprocessor systems - all using the same time-proven, open and intuitive platform."

Labview 8 has new flexible and easy-to-use distributed communication and control tools. This latest version presents a simplified, scalable interface for communicating with and synchronising between remote intelligent devices and systems, such as realtime processors and FPGAs. This allows embedded designers, test engineers and control system engineers to use the same graphical platform for simple data transfer, deterministic realtime communication and network synchronisation with integrated alarms, events and datalogging.

Labview Project is a new key feature. This introduces a new project-based environment for managing large applications and team development. The Labview Project also includes tools for multiple target management; integrated code differencing and source code control; multibuild management; and the ability to seamlessly deploy applications to desktop, mobile, industrial and embedded targets.

Additionally, Labview 8 continues to build on Express technology with new tools for simplifying instrument control and data acquisition. With the new Labview Instrument Driver Finder, engineers and scientists now can automatically recognise connected instruments and search, download and install the appropriate driver from the more than 4000 available on the NI Instrument Driver Network (www.ni.com/idnet).
