NI unveils latest enhancements to LabVIEW NXG

National Instruments (NI) has announced a number of enhancements to LabVIEW NXG, the next generation of LabVIEW engineering system design software.

This latest version of LabVIEW NXG introduces key functionality and, according to NI, reinvents long-standing benefits, particularly for engineers developing, deploying and managing automated test and measurement systems.

This release introduces the WebVI, a VI type for building web-based user interfaces (UIs) that can be deployed to any web browser with no plug-ins or installers. In addition, to reduce hardware configuration time, a new SystemDesigner feature can automatically discover connected hardware, display installed drivers and directly link to available NI and third-party instrument drivers if they are not yet installed.

This latest release expands hardware support to thousands of box instruments and NI’s high-performance PXI modular instrumentation. LabVIEW NXG can now also deliver programming capabilities such as object-oriented programming and integration with TestStand test management software.

NI has designed several features in LabVIEW NXG, such as the WebVI, for use with existing LabVIEW applications without the need for extensive software refactoring. Engineers can reuse test code, including code written with LabVIEW NXG or LabVIEW, through a new package manager interface built on industry-standard package formats.

This latest update to the next generation of LabVIEW continues a series of releases which are intended to expand engineering capabilities from design to test.

Whether engineers are buying LabVIEW for the first time or have been on an active service contract for years, it is possible to access both the new version of LabVIEW NXG and LabVIEW 2017.
