National Instruments Aust & NZ announces the release of NI LabVIEW 2013, the newest version of its system design software for engineers and scientists.
LabVIEW 2013 integrates the latest and most innovative technologies while reducing design complexity into a more intuitive experience.
New capabilities in LabVIEW 2013 include native support for the newest hardware from vendors such as ARM and Xilinx, including the Xilinx Zynq All Programmable system on a chip used in high-performance systems; enhanced application reliability and quality for complex applications through a suite of code management, documentation and review tools; streamlined deployment technologies for developers who want to deliver professional applications to users, including a new tool from Wirebird Labs; and delivering systems on the latest mobile platforms for iOS and Android that enable dashboards for remote monitoring and system control.
These new capabilities are delivered through the familiar LabVIEW programming paradigm, eliminating the need for expensive new toolchains or the acquisition of OS- or hardware-specific training or talent.
According to Ray Almgren, vice president of marketing at National Instruments, LabVIEW 2013 exemplifies NI’s commitment to ensuring that engineers and scientists are equipped with the latest technologies while simplifying the complexity of designing a system that uses these advancements.
LabVIEW 2013 includes more than 100 new features and improvements in the LabVIEW editor, based on user feedback. Additionally, NI has introduced an in-product storefront for the LabVIEW Tools Network, an expansive community of LabVIEW software add-ons that recently surpassed two million product downloads.
NI has also simplified and expanded access to resources that ensure LabVIEW programmers can take full advantage of a product’s broad toolset. Customers with an active service contract will benefit from an expanded library of online training resources from the use of real-time targets to programming for FPGAs and even object-oriented programming.
