Overview of the NI LabVIEW
Learn to use common design patterns to successfully implement and distribute LabVIEW applications for research, engineering, and testing environments.
- LabVIEW programs are called as virtual instruments or VIs, because their appearance and operation often imitate physical instruments such as oscilloscopes and multimeters.
- LabVIEW contains a comprehensive set of tools for acquiring, analyzing, displaying, and storing data, as well as tools to help you troubleshoot the code you write.
- When you create a new VI, you see two windows: the front panel and the block diagram.
- The front panel is the user interface for the VI and the block diagram contains the graphical source code of the LabVIEW program.
