This morning, NI announced LabVIEW NXG 1.0, the first release of the next generation of LabVIEW engineering system design software that bridges the gap between configuration-based software and custom programming languages with a new approach to measurement automation that empowers domain experts to focus on what matters most – the problem, not the tool.
The 1.0 release of LabVIEW NXG helps engineers performing benchtop measurements increase their productivity with new nonprogramming workflows to acquire and iteratively analyze measurement data.
These nonprogramming workflows simplify automation by building the necessary code behind the scenes. For instance, engineers can drag and drop a section of code equivalent to 50 lines of text-based code. This is just one of the many ways LabVIEW NXG helps engineers focus on innovation rather than implementation.
LabVIEW NXG introduces a re-engineered editor with functionality that experienced LabVIEW users often request, but it still offers a user experience similar to complementary software in the market.
The refreshed editor further extends the openness of LabVIEW to integrate with a broader set of languages. The modernized editor improves programming productivity by streamlining the editor micro-interactions, user interface objects based on vector graphics and zooming capabilities.
As LabVIEW NXG 1.0 revolutionizes benchtop measurements, new capabilities in LabVIEW 2017 target the development, deployment and management of large, complex and distributed test and embedded applications. These include features that enhance interoperability with standard IP and standard communications protocols such as IEC 61131-3, OPC UA and the secure DDS messaging standard.
