What Is Measurement Studio?

Measurement Studio is the only suite of tools designed for building professional engineering applications in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, 2012, and 2013 to acquire, analyze, and display measurement data. It offers extensible measurement classes and user interface (UI) controls for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows, and Web Forms to help you design an end-to-end test or measurement system in Visual Basic .NET and Visual C#.
