LabVIEW 2011 makes it possible for engineers to achieve significant productivity gains in a variety of tasks, including the following time-saving functions:
-- Quickly develop visually striking, contemporary user interfaces with a new Silver palette of controls and indicators
-- Reuse code with support for the latest .NET assemblies, .m structures and new Xilinx IP for the LabVIEW FPGA Module
-- Achieve up to five times faster loading, wiring, editing and compiling of FPGA code
-- Programmatically build and distribute executables to targets
-- Spawn asynchronous threads to create multithreaded applications more quickly with a new communication API
With its stability for mission-critical applications, as well as its simplified integration with hardware from many industry leaders, LabVIEW 2011 gives measurement and control system designers the confidence to innovate efficiently within a proven support infrastructure.
“By using LabVIEW, we decreased our system development time by one-third compared to the time we spent with traditional approaches,” said Glenn Larkin, engineer for the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, home of advanced fusion research and one of the world’s most powerful lasers. “We plan to extend our use of LabVIEW and NI hardware in many facilities that support NIF so we can realize these same productivity gains in future projects.”
When combined with modular hardware, LabVIEW 2011 is the centerpiece of the NI approach to graphical system design, which provides a unified platform for designing, prototyping and deploying applications with maximum efficiency. Engineers and scientists in virtually every industry are using graphical system design, from basic measurement applications to the most complex, advanced research projects.
