Software Overview

National Instruments LabVIEW is a platform used to build measurement and control systems. It is a complete develop environment geared towards scientists and engineers taking measurements. The software is available for Windows, OS X, and Linux.

LabVIEW uses a visual programming language, known as "G," to help users visually create their systems. It has analysis capabilities, UI displays for scientific and engineering data, and the ability to incorporate different programming approaches. The application also provides sample projects that can be customized to your needs so you don't have to begin building your system from scratch.

There are over 10,000 different instrument drivers available for use with LabVIEW, which lets you use any device in your LabVIEW system. The software can integrate with low cost measurement and data acquisition devices, build standalone measurement systems built on a reconfigurable I/O platform, and use I/O modules to build embedded control systems.

LabVIEW is a good software choice for taking and analyzing measurements. The software provides a large amount of development capabilities that can be added through its graphical programming language. Also, there are a lot of tools and resources for learning the software, whether you want to attend classes in your area or learn from online tutorials. As a scientist or engineer National Instruments LabVIEW, is a quality option for building your measurement and control systems.
