Engineering 2008 Readers’ Choice Awards
LabVIEW is a graphical system design platform for test, control and embedded system development. It simplifies multicore as well as FPGA-based application development with its parallel dataflow language. Running on parallel multicore architectures, the software can deliver fast test throughput, efficient processor-intensive analysis and reliable real-time systems on dedicated processor cores. The system also extends the LabVIEW platform far into embedded and industrial applications with the new statechart design module for modeling and implementing system behavior as well as I/O libraries and analysis functions for industrial monitoring and control.
