How Do I Use LabVIEW to Validate or Verify Electronic Designs?

LabVIEW can help you validate electronic designs faster with reduced system setup time, included analysis functions, and drag-and-drop user interface creation.

See What You Can Do With LabVIEW

LabVIEW simplifies system setup with thousands of drivers to connect to third-party benchtop or modular instruments. You can instantly gain insight from measurement data with 1,000+ analysis functions. You can also create custom user interfaces with engineering-specific drag-and-drop objects to quickly determine test outcomes, and share your results through multiple file formats including binary, text, and CSV.


Reduce System Setup Time by Connecting to Virtually Any Hardware

LabVIEW gives you the ability to acquire data from third-party benchtop or modular instruments over any bus—such as USB, Ethernet, Serial, and GPIB—with thousands of instrument drivers that typically include APIs, example programs, and documentation.

Get Instant Insights From Measurement Data

You can turn your raw data into measurement insights by using 1,000+ built-in analysis functions or reusing your existing code from software, such as The MathWorks, Inc. MATLAB®, or programming languages, such as C/C++/C# or Python, with LabVIEW.

Quickly Visualize Test Outcomes

You can create custom user interfaces with a comprehensive collection of drag-and-drop objects specifically built for engineering applications. You can then integrate the test outcomes from all your instruments into one view to make your decisions faster.

Easily Store and Share Data in Multiple File Formats

LabVIEW provides a collection of file management functions to save and share your data in the appropriate file format in standard file formats such as binary, text, and CSV. You can also read from any custom file format using NI DataPlugins.

Accelerate Development With Faster Learning

You can learn on your own or from an instructor to increase your productivity with LabVIEW and third-party benchtop instruments. NI provides on-demand online training with LabVIEW software service, or you can register for live courses to gain hands-on experience developing measurement systems and designing new instrument drivers.
