Prototyping Faster with Graphical System Design

Prototyping is a crucial part of the embedded design process. The ability to demonstrate and show your idea functioning to investors, customers and management is a great way to get your idea into someone's budget. National Instruments graphical system design tools have proven useful for getting a functional prototype working quickly without requiring a large design team. NI LabVIEW graphical programming tools can program ready-to-run NI hardware with built-in processors, FPGAs and I/O to prototype medical, green, robotics and industrial machine control applications faster.
