NIWeek 2015 Keynote Presentations

  • Welcome to NIWeek 2015
    Dr. James Truchard welcomes the audience to NIWeek 2015.
  • Eric Starkloff
    Eric address that, going forward, testing the IoT requires more than testing a few additional sensors and adding RF measurements. Instead, the IoT is driving increased product integration, from the IC to the end device.
  • Jaguar Land Rover
    Within the powertrain controller R&D group, Jaguar Land Rover was generating up to 500 GB of data per day but only analyzing less than 10% of that data. They built a server-based data management and analysis solution based on DIAdem & DataFinder Server Edition
  • Berlin Heart
    Berlin Heart is an innovative medical device company that provides life sustaining mechanical circulatory support devices for children with severe heart failure. They use LabVIEW and NI hardware to perform functional and life cycle testing of these devices.
  • Embraer
    Embraer changed their testing philosophy in the 1990’s, by investing more in simulated ground testing to shorten our time-to-market. Embraer selected UTAS France as the global system architect for the primary flight control actuator system.
  • ETH
    Neil Feiereisel discusses an application from researches at ETH in Switzerland that uses PXI and LabVIEW to scale up to nearly 1000 channels and 100’s of FPGA coordinated together to create a massive real-time super computer.
  • Cirrus Logic
    NI has announced Cirrus Logic selected Semiconductor Test System for high-volume production test of its Audio-CODEC products powering IoT devices. During a benchmark compare of test systems, STS beat out closed, purpose-built ATE in every aspect.
  • Gen 3
    Jake Harnack discusses the Gen 3 Controller and chassis.
  • Harman
    NI also has announced the Wireless Test System (WTS), which integrates easily into manufacturing lines with ready-to-run test sequences for devices using chipsets from Qualcomm and Broadcom and integrated DUT and remote automation control.
  • Innovari
    Innovari is working to make the grid more efficient by balancing peak loads to better utilize existing infrastructure. By using the LabVIEW RIO architecture and a Single-Board RIO they were able prove out their design and quickly get to market.
  • Diagnostic Sonar
    Diagnostic Sonar is pushing the boundaries of edge analytics by bringing advanced composite inspection to a portable form factor with the new Controller for FlexRIO.
  • Firefly
    By adding intelligence to every part of their machine through CompactRIO, Firefly can double their customers productivity over manual labor and harvest 20% faster using half as much fuel as their competitors.
  • Texas Instruments
    Texas Instruments has been a leader in the semiconductor market for decades, releasing the first integrated circuit in 1958. As TI’s vision has evolved, so has their commitment to product quality.
  • LabVIEW 2015
    NI has announced LabVIEW 2015 system design software to help engineers write code faster. LabVIEW 2015 includes key enhancements to enable a higher level of productivity for engineers with new right-click shortcuts that simplify common programming tasks.
  • Areva Wind
    Areva Wind has been evolving their 8 billion euro business to specialize in renewable energy. Dr. Fomi Francis Wamba discusses the requirements and challenges of large scale condition monitoring.
  • Samsung
    Samsung has been a true pioneer in wireless research for many years. They were the first company to demonstrate a working mmWave 5G prototype which spurred research activity and investment in mmWave research all over the world

  • Industrial IOT
    Speakers from the Industrial Internet Consortium, Cisco, and IBM discuss the testbeds that are being created to tap the potential of the Industrial Internet of Things.
  • Dell
    Frank Hanzlik, former director of the Wi-Fi Alliance, shares about the world of opportunity that wireless technology presents and how it will impact test engineers.
  • Ruckus Wireless
    David Hall shares how Ruckus Wireless is able to deliver Wi-Fi to dense locations through unique beamforming technology tested with NI's VST.
  • Intel
    Mino Taoyama shares how Intel is partnering with fashion brands and how TestStand enables them to tackle this high-mix test challenge.
  • GoPro
    Jessica Gehlhar and Andy Long discuss how GoPro's growth has led to new test challenges that can be solved with NI tools.
  • PTC
    Mike Campbell demonstrates how PTC has evolved its CAD technology to provide new IoT insights.
  • NI's Software Platform
    NI Software Leadership and Bob O'Donnell discuss the evolution in NI's software platform.
