The big data era demands more intelligent measurement systems

  As modern machines, vehicles, and structures continue to grow more complex, engineers require more advanced sensors, measurement systems, and data management infrastructures to stay relevant. For example, monitoring the Large Hadron Collider or a four-engine jumbo jet requires thousands of sensor channels that generate hundreds of terabytes of data. With a need for high […]

Upgrades to system design software launched

  At the annual NI week held in Austin, Texas during the first week in August, LabVIEW 2014 system design software was launched,  featuring upgrades to help users acquire, analyse and visualise data sets to make informed decisions quickly. The new version standardises the way users interact with hardware through reuse of the same code and […]

New possibilities for engineers using benchtop test equipment

  NI recently announced VirtualBench, an all-in-one instrument that integrates a mixed-signal oscilloscope, function generator, digital multimeter, programmable DC power supply and digital I/O. Users interact with VirtualBench through software applications that run on PCs or iPads. The device provides the most common functionality affordably and opens up new possibilities for how engineers can use benchtop […]

Next generation wireless prototyping platform

National Instruments has launched an integrated software defined radio solution for rapidly prototyping high-performance, multichannel wireless communication systems. The NI USRP RIO platform is built on the NI LabView Rio architecture, and combines a high-performance 2 x 2 multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) RF transceiver capable of transmitting and receiving signals from 50 MHz to […]

Free system design software training offered

National Instruments recently hosted is 2013 Labview Developer Days, a series of free annual events providing an opportunity for new and existing Labview users to learn time-saving tips and development techniques. The events took place in Johannesburg and Cape Town during May 2013, with well over 100 engineers, scientists and educators attending. Attendance was free, […]

Optimising automated test systems

National Instruments has announced its newest general-purpose programmable power supplies, which offer the highest power density available in PXI and form the foundation of automated test systems. The NI PXIe-4112 and NI PXIe-4113 modules provide high power density that saves rack space while simplifying design by eliminating the need to mix multiple instrumentation form factors. […]
