NI Continues to Accelerate Beyond the Speed of Innovation Bringing New Features and Functionality to LabVIEW

Sponsored by Businesswire

NIWeek– NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of a software-defined
platform that helps accelerate the development and performance of
automated test and automated measurement systems, today announced the
latest release of LabVIEW 2019 and LabVIEW NXG. These releases are proof
of NI’s continued investment in the next generation of LabVIEW and
systems engineering software. NI continues to focus efforts around
optimization in the test and measurement processes in key areas of test
development integration, efficient automated testing, and access to data
& systems.

The latest release of LabVIEW 2019 increases developer productivity
through improved visibility in the IDE, powerful enhancements in
debugging, and new datatypes to the G-language. Additionally, LabVIEW
2019 addresses a critical pain point for engineers: managing
dependencies and versioning with fragmented, non-standardized methods,
which perpetuate as challenges in code deployment. With the new
distribution option of package installers in LabVIEW 2019, users can now
implement a standardized distribution method with inherent version
management and automatic dependency management to confidently replicate
and share system software.

The newest version of LabVIEW NXG simplifies the most time-consuming
tasks in automated test and automated measurement applications, from
deploying and distributing code faster than before, importing and
exporting MATLAB® data (. mat) for improved interoperability with
third-party software, and additional capabilities added to Web VIs to
give users better interaction and control with their applications. These
enhancements help engineers meet challenging time-to-market requirements
by reducing time-intensive set-up through rapid connectivity to
instrumentation, removing integration bottlenecks that traditionally
arise in bringing in 3rd party IP through native
interoperability with other programming languages and toolkits, and
increasing access to important data by lowering the barrier of entry to
web technology.

“Using WebVIs allows us to provide our users an interface to the test
management database from anywhere, anytime, and we were able to develop
the web interfaces using just our core LabVIEW skills. We saved
development time and the users have instant access to review data or
change test criteria,” said Jeremy Marquis, Engineering Team
Leader at G Systems, Inc.

As NI builds on its more than 30-year investment in software, these
LabVIEW releases continue the fast-paced updates aimed to expand
engineering capabilities from design to test. Whether an engineer is
using LabVIEW for the first time or has been on an active user for
years, LabVIEW 2019 and LabVIEW NXG are immediately accessible and will
make an immediate impact.
