National Instruments on Tuesday announced that LabVIEW 7 Express, the graphical development environment, is now available in French, German and Japanese. What’s more, LabVIEW documentation is available in Korean for the first time.
announced in January that it was bringing the LabVIEW graphical development environment, first created on Mac OS more than 15 years ago, to Mac OS X (10.2 and higher). With LabVIEW for Mac OS X, scientists and engineers can create applications, or virtual instruments (VIs), for acquiring, analyzing, and presenting a range of technical data, including temperature, pressure, vibration, and voltage. These VIs can be downloaded via Ethernet to run on a real-time modular instrumentation platform.
The “Express VIs” in LabVIEW Express are designed to reduce development time and the learning curve associated with software tools by encapsulating the functionality of five to 15 standard virtual instruments in single, interactive VIs that require little or no programming to configure. This version of LabVIEW also redefines how engineers acquire and analyze real-world data with a redesigned NI-DAQ driver framework and two interactive assistants for data acquisition and instrument control.
A demo is available at the National Instruments Web site. Pricing details
