Elvesys Designs the World’s Fastest Pathogen Detection Platform

Diseases like Ebola and influenza, and pathogenic threats such as anthrax, are a very real consequence of a growing and mobile world population. Today’s pathogen detection technologies require both time and costly laboratory equipment to achieve accurate test results. Using an NI USB-6003 low-cost multifunction DAQ device and LabVIEW software, Elvesys, a small, self-funded French start-up, developed the world’s fastest pathogen detection platform, buying treatment time for patients and minimizing further exposure that could lead to an outbreak.

Setting World Records in 5G Wireless Spectral Efficiency Using Massive MIMO

To address our rapidly approaching, hyper-connected future and the unprecedented demand on current 4G wireless networks, researchers at the University of Bristol and Lund University set out to test the feasibility of massive MIMO as a viable technology for 5G networks. Using the NI MIMO Prototyping System, the team was able to rapidly test new ideas on their way to implementing the world’s first live demonstration of a 128-antenna, real-time massive MIMO testbed and set two consecutive world records in spectral efficiency.

Smart Turf Harvesting Machine Boosts Productivity and Reduces Cost

Using the NI CompactRIO platform, FireFly Equipment was able to save hundreds of thousands of dollars in development time and simplify the complexity of an extremely advanced machine. CompactRIO controls everything in this machine–including 40 hydraulic valves, 5 axes of high-performance motion, over 150 channels of analog and digital I/O, the operator interface, and over 30 parallel control loops–eliminating the need for separate subsystems in the design.

Search Syntax Summary

OperatorExampleActionBoolean Equivalent
" " "temperature monitoring" Requires two terms to be adjacent to each other. In this example, only documents containing the phrase "temperature monitoring" will be shown. ADJ
+ +temperature Requires this term to be present as-is, eliminating the use of synonyms. This search query can be used in conjunction with other keywords to find only documents containing the word "temperature". AND
- -monitoring Excludes results containing this term. Use this query in conjunction with other terms to find only documents not containing the word "monitoring" NOT
* monitor* Acts as a wildcard. This example will return documents containing words "monitor", "monitoring", "monitored", etc n/a

Basic Tips

  • Search is not case sensitive. Searching for LabVIEW is the same as searching for labview.
  • Keep your query short and focused, including all relevant keywords. For example, searching for labview error is much more vague than labview error 1041.
  • Usually, all punctuation and special characters are interpreted as delimiters and are ignored. See exceptions on the Syntax page. Be especially careful when using a minus sign in front of an error number, as it excludes it from the results.
  • Search for keywords you would expect to see on a page. For example, terms pxi does not work are unlikely to appear in technical documentation. The query like analog output noise will return better search results.

Advanced Tips

  • You locale settings identify your current geographical location and affect your search results. For example, if you set your country to Japan, Japanese documents will get boosted in your search results. Check your locale settings in the top right corner of the search page.
