NI Offers Free Web-based Evaluation Tool for LabVIEW 7.1

11/19/2004 - Engineers and scientists now can quickly and easily explore the latest version of the National Instruments LabVIEW 7.1 graphical development environment without downloading or installing any software. The new NI LabVIEW online evaluation is a free Web-based tool for evaluating industry-leading LabVIEW software through customized tutorials and exercises designed for new users.

“More engineers and scientists than ever are turning to the Web to learn about software and application solutions,” said John Graff, NI vice president of marketing and customer operations. “National Instruments is committed to providing the best software evaluation experience available through instant online access to our industry-standard graphical development environment.”

Using the LabVIEW online evaluation, engineers and scientists can learn to develop custom test and measurement applications with exercises covering user interface design, instrument control, signal analysis and more. The evaluation features the fully functional LabVIEW professional development environment, the highest-end LabVIEW package, which offers thousands of functions for acquiring, analyzing and presenting data as well as advanced application development tools. Both new and current users can explore beyond the evaluation’s exercises to determine how LabVIEW 7.1 can enhance their applications.

The LabVIEW online evaluation is based on the Virtual Demo Management System (VDMS) technology available from Surgient, an Austin-based provider of on-demand applications. With the Surgient VDMS enterprise software application, software corporations can simplify and enhance their abilities to create, deliver and manage online software evaluations.

NI LabVIEW is a graphical development environment for engineers and scientists who need to create flexible and scalable test, measurement and control applications rapidly and at minimal cost. With LabVIEW, engineers and scientists interface with real-world signals, analyze data for meaningful information and share results and applications.
