What is Virtual Instrumentation ?
For more than 25 years, National Instruments, USA has revolutionized the way engineers and scientists in industry, government, and academia approach measurement and automation. Leveraging PCs and commercial technologies, virtual instrumentation increases productivity and lowers costs for test, control, and design applications through easy-to-integrate software, such as NI LabVIEW, and modular measurement and control hardware for PXI, PCI, USB, and Ethernet.
With virtual instrumentation, engineers use graphical programming software to create user-defined solutions that meet their specific needs, which is a great alternative to proprietary, fixed functionality traditional instruments. Additionally, virtual instrumentation capitalizes on the ever-increasing performance of personal computers. For example, in test, measurement, and control, engineers have used virtual instrumentation to downsize automated test equipment (ATE) while experiencing up to a 10 times increase in productivity gains at a fraction of the cost of traditional instrument solutions. Last year 25,000 companies in 90 countries invested in more than 6 million virtual instrumentation channels from National Instruments.
Virtual Instrumentation is combining hardware and software with industry-standard computer technologies to create user-defined instrumentation solutions.
Virtual Instrumentation empowers us to build our own instrumentation systems with standard computers and cost-effective hardware. These software-centered systems leverage off the computational, displays, and connectivity capabilities of popular computers to give us the power and flexibility to build each of our instrumentation functions. We can mix and match our choice of data acquisition and instrument control hardware, including all of our existing instruments, to create virtual instrumentation systems that exactly meet our needs.Request a Fee Quote, if this is something which tickles your grey matter, and you are interested in Training/Project with us.
