LabVIEW System Design Software is a user friendly design software which utilizes a graphical programming language and platform-based approach. Commonly used by scientists and engineers, LabVIEW provides built-in functions for simulation, data acquisition, instrument control, measurement analysis, and data presentation. Faculty, staff, and students do not need advanced computer science training to write programs and applications. LabVIEW is also designed to work with other software.
