Important news impacting NXG: Changes are coming in 2022.


LabVIEW NXG is the next generation of LabVIEW. Test smarter with LabVIEW NXG by quickly automating your hardware, customizing tests to your specifications, and easily viewing measurement results from anywhere.

Explore LabVIEW NXG Features

LabVIEW NXG gives you the ability to configure, automate, and visualize your test results, all within a single tool. You can reduce your time to measurement with automatic instrument driver identification for thousands of instruments, and then rapidly customize your system with an integrated drag-and-drop design approach. View your results from anywhere by building web-based user interfaces that can be deployed to any web browser–PC, tablet, or phone–with no plugins or installers. LabVIEW users with an active Standard Service Program (SSP) membership are eligible for access to the latest version of LabVIEW NXG. See what's new in the latest version.

Use hardware auto-discovery and interactive panels to take your first measurement faster.
