Because NI DMMs are designed for automated test applications, you use software to control and communicate with the instrument. For quick measurements or application debugging, the DMM soft front panel offers the front-panel experience users expect from a traditional benchtop instrument.
Figure 3: NI’s DMM driver (NI-DMM) includes an interactive soft front panel for quick measurements and application debugging.
In addition to the soft front panel, the DMM driver includes a best-in-class API that works with a variety of development options such as LabVIEW, C, C#, and others. To ensure long-term interoperability of DMMs, the NI-DMM driver API is the same API used for all past and current NI DMMs. The driver also provides access to help files, documentation, and dozens of ready-to-run shipping examples you can use as a starting point for your application.
