LabVIEW in Teaching & Research
Top 10 Reasons to Use NI LabVIEW for Teaching Engineering Concepts and Innovating on Research
Engineer Your Algorithms
Integrate the aspects of theoretical algorithm design with real-world data to verify and validate results and behavior. By combining the theoretical models of the design using real-world signals, you can design, simulate, modify design parameters, and explore the algorithm implementation. With algorithm engineering, you can benefit from higher-quality designs, avoid simulation-only challenges, and more rapidly design and prototype your applications.
Discover Hands-On Project-Based Learning
Connecting theory to real-world applications in an engaging way can be a challenge for educators. Using LabVIEW, you can tackle complex problems with intuitive dataflow programming, integrate a variety of hardware, and compare simulation data with measured signals. Students spend more time exploring concepts, investigating theory through application, and applying design models while spending less time learning the tools.
Increase Performance with Multicore Programming
Harness the power of your multicore computer using the highly optimized LabVIEW parallelizing compiler. By automatically running your code in multiple threads, you can run more complex algorithms and crunch through large data sets faster than with traditional sequential programming.
Take Measurements in Minutes with Tight I/O Connectivity
Quickly configure and use almost any measurement device, from stand-alone instruments to USB data acquisition devices. LabVIEW delivers seamless connectivity with a wide range of measurement hardware. With more built-in choices for I/O integration and instrument control than any other programming environment, LabVIEW helps you continually acquire and analyze data from millions of I/O channels and instruments.
Use Multiple Models of Computation to Solve Your Problem
Combine graphical dataflow programming with other high-level development frameworks, such as text-based math, statecharts, object-oriented programming, and dynamic system simulation, to help solve your problems. Unlike traditional programming tools, all of these different problem-solving approaches are native to the LabVIEW platform to help provide a single environment that meets a wide range of engineering and scientific application needs.
Analyze Signals with Built-In Math and Signal Processing Functions
LabVIEW includes thousands of advanced functions created specifically for engineers and scientists. With these powerful tools, you can perform advanced signal processing, filtering, frequency analysis, probability and statistics, curve fitting, interpolation, digital signal processing, and more. You also can extend LabVIEW with specific processing for applications including RF/communications and sound and vibration.
Visualize Your Data
Quickly create a graphical user interface (UI) to visualize your data using hundreds of drag-and-drop controls, graphs, and 3D display tools. You graphically can present your data with a wide array of UI objects such as charts, graphs, thermometers, and 2D and 3D visualization tools. Simply drag and drop built-in objects onto your UI and customize object behavior with interactive property pages.
Decrease Development Time with Embedded System Design
LabVIEW is leading thousands of engineers and scientists toward custom embedded development by applying the graphical programming approach to field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). LabVIEW empowers domain experts to move their designs to embedded hardware without having to become embedded experts. Without requiring low-level hardware description languages or board-level design, LabVIEW combined with embedded hardware delivers the most rapid embedded prototyping solution available.
