LabVIEW gets embedded

Scientists and engineers now can use National Instruments LabVIEW software to save significant time prototyping and deploying embedded applications to 32-bit microprocessors.


Scientists and engineers now can take advantage of the high-level graphical programming environment of National Instruments LabVIEW software to save significant time prototyping and deploying embedded applications to 32-bit microprocessors.


The new NI LabVIEW Embedded Development Module extends LabVIEW to any 32-bit embedded processor, providing scientists and engineers with a graphical approach to algorithm design, simulation, prototyping and deployment of custom designs for embedded systems.


With the LabVIEW Embedded Development Module, scientists and engineers can design algorithms and program their applications using an intuitive graphical dataflow language. In addition, LabVIEW graphical front panel controls and indicators help engineers interactively experiment and debug their embedded code much more quickly than conventional approaches.


The LabVIEW Embedded Development Module includes more than 400 analysis functions for signal processing, linear algebra, curve fitting, statistics and calculus. In addition to out-of-the-box measurement functionality for integrating real-world data early in the process, the module also features a framework for integrating I/O drivers and board support packages for taking advantage of specific processors with LabVIEW.

Scientists and engineers can develop their applications using the LabVIEW graphical environment and then automatically generate C code to integrate with their chosen processor tool chains.
