National Instruments unveiles LabVIEW 2011

03 August 2011 – National Instruments introduced NI LabVIEW 2011, the 25th-anniversary version of its system design software. LabVIEW 2011 can dramatically increase development efficiency through new engineering-specific libraries and its ability to interact with almost any hardware device or deployment target, including the new multicore NI CompactRIO controller and the high performance RF vector signal analyzer NI PXIe-5665.

It also supports assemblies built in the latest Microsoft .NET Framework and includes numerous features driven directly from user feedback. With these and other advantages, LabVIEW 2011 helps engineers integrate individual system components into a single, reconfigurable platform so they can do their jobs faster, better and at a lower cost.

“Twenty-five years ago, we created LabVIEW to help engineers focus on innovating instead of wrestling with complicated programming and system integration issues, and today, it has become the ultimate system design software for measurement and control,” said Jeff Kodosky, National Instruments business and technology fellow, cofounder and inventor of LabVIEW. “With each new version, whether by ensuring integration with the latest hardware, introducing new libraries and APIs or implementing engineer-requested features, our primary objective remains to increase productivity in any engineering situation.”

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

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.
