National Instruments: System Design Software Updated

Aug. 13, 2015
LabVIEW 2015 features speed improvements, development shortcuts, and debugging tools.

The new version supports advanced hardware such as the new Quad Core Performance CompactRIO and CompactDAQ Controllers, 14-slot CompactDAQ USB 3.0 chassis, single-board RIO Controllers, controller for FlexRIO, eight-core PXI controller, and high voltage system SMU. It also reduces the learning curve for employing a software-designed approach to quickly create, and includes three application-specific suites that include a year of unlimited training and certification benefits. The new version enables users to open large libraries up to eight times faster and eliminate prompts to locate missing module subVIs; execute common programming tasks faster with seven new right-click plugins and develop additional plugins to maximize productivity; examine arrays and strings in auto-scaling probe watch windows and document findings with hyperlink and hashtag support in comments; and offload FPGA compilations to the LabVIEW FPGA Compile Cloud service included with Standard Service Program membership. In addition, the LabVIEW Tools Network has been enriched by IP both from the company and third party providers. The new Advanced Plotting Toolkit by Heliosphere Research furnishes developers with programmatic plotting tools to create data visualizations. The RTI DDS Toolkit by Real-Time Innovations enables IoT applications with scalable peer-to-peer data communication. Additionally, application-specific libraries for biomedical, GPU analysis, and multicore analysis and sparse matrix applications are now available free of charge.
