NATIONAL Instruments and Tektronix have announced a cooperative effort that maximises design engineer productivity by delivering NI LabVIEW software preinstalled on the Tektronix open Windows oscilloscopes.
Beginning in September, Tektronix open Windows oscilloscopes will include ready-to-run applications of NI LabVIEW graphical development environment optimised for the oscilloscope as well as a fully functional evaluation version of the software.
This initiative combines the strength of Tektronix oscilloscopes in taking high-precision measurements with the advanced analysis and automation capabilities of LabVIEW.
Engineers and scientists using the LabVIEW-enabled oscilloscopes can now quickly solve design challenges and efficiently automate tests.
A variety of prebuilt sample programs will also help users quickly develop their own custom solutions.
The evaluation version of LabVIEW is a fully functional version of the full graphical development environment.
Customers can purchase the LabVIEW full development system, including the specialised oscilloscope examples, directly from NI.
