NI LabVIEW 2011 Release Details

LabVIEW 2011 Accelerates Engineers’ Productivity

NI LabVIEW 2011 is the latest version of the only system design software that provides engineers and scientists with the tools they need to create any measurement and control systems. It simplifies system design by offering access to the newest high-performance and low-cost entry points to the reconfigurable I/O (RIO) platform, to one of the highest bandwidth vector signal analyzers on digitizers on the market, and to the latest off-the-shelf hardware while delivering enhanced compatibility with .NET objects and .m file structures.

The latest version of LabVIEW has been further tailored for the engineer with improvements and features taken directly from user feedback. It delivers new engineering-specific libraries of UI controls, math and signal processing IP, and advanced APIs for controlling asynchronous threads and programmatically compiling LabVIEW code into an executable. LabVIEW 2011 is designed to help engineers accelerate their productivity whether they are first-time users or longtime experts.

This version includes new features for LabVIEW and all LabVIEW modules as well as updates and bug fixes to the rest of the LabVIEW platform. NI Standard Service Program subscribers can download LabVIEW 2011 now.
