National Instruments Aust & NZ announces the release of NI VeriStand 2012, the latest version of its configuration-based software environment with an open, intuitive software interface for developing real-time testing applications.
NI VeriStand adds new features for efficiently configuring and running real-time testing applications including hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulators and test cell control and monitoring systems.
The latest release of NI VeriStand allows engineers to acquire and analyse data at much higher speeds, use new tools to scale, calibrate and condition measurements to ensure accuracy and improve test quality as well as get up and running out of the box by adding utilities for hardware auto-discovery and data channel configuration.
NI SC Express integration makes acquiring conditioned measurements easier than ever before.
According to Mike Santori, NI Business and Technology Fellow, the new release of NI VeriStand is the next step in their investment to provide a real-time testing platform that reduces risk and cost across a spectrum of applications ranging from embedded software validation to mechanical test systems.
He explains that new features are continuously being added to NI VeriStand to help engineers meet strict time-to-market requirements despite increasing test challenges.
Key features of NI VeriStand 2012:
- Real-time model execution from a variety of modelling environments
- Open, extensible architecture to create custom code modules or incorporate custom user interfaces
- Built-in test automation using the Stimulus Profile Editor
- Integration with NI hardware I/O library, including FPGAs, embedded networks, machine vision, RF and a range of multifunction data acquisition modules
