Vendor: National Instruments.

Supported Operating Systems: National Instruments supports LabVIEW in Mac, Linux and Windows environments.

General Description: National Instruments defines LabVIEW VI's as "virtual instruments, or VIs, because their appearance and operation imitate physical instruments, such as oscilloscopes and multimeters. LabVIEW contains a comprehensive set of tools for acquiring, analyzing, displaying, and storing data, as well as tools to help you troubleshoot code you write. In LabVIEW, you build a user interface, or front panel, with controls and indicators. Controls are knobs, push buttons, dials, and other input mechanisms. Indicators are graphs, LEDs, and other output displays. After you build the user interface, you add code using VIs and structures to control the front panel objects. The block diagram contains this code."

Scope of License: LabVIEW is available for installation on personal computers. You can download the software here: Once downloaded you will need a serial number to activate it. The Mines serial number can be found on the Mines Software Download site. We also have a campus wide site license for research and teaching.
