The National Instruments LabVIEW Platform

The National Instruments LabVIEW Platform is a tightly integrated suite of industry-standard hardware components and software tools for building measurement and automation applications. It is widely recognized as one of the strongest and most flexible platforms available for developing Mixed Signal I/O Systems.


The Benefit of Working with a Development Platform

The hardware and software elements that make up the NI LabVIEW Platform can address the full spectrum of measurement and automation applications, from plug-in data acquisition devices for PCs and laptops, to high-precision modular instrumentation, and powerful and robust industrial controllers.

 

All the elements of the Platform are designed and engineered from the ground up to work together seamlessly, and to present a consistent interface to the user.  You spend more time actually working with the outputs of your system, and less time trying to make the pieces fit together. And maintaining or extending the system is straightforward and predictable - you can be sure that any new components will integrate seamlessly and consistently with the existing system. Newer hardware technologies can be smoothly integrated into a system as required, and old legacy hardware will still be supported in a consistent fashion under new versions of driver and application software.


For our clients this means shorter times-to-market, less budget uncertainty, and confidence that their systems can evolve to meet changing requirements, and be supported over their full commercial lifetime. It also means that the majority, if not all, of the components of their integrated system are supported through a single vendor (National Instruments) via a world-wide network of sales and engineering offices.
