NI LabVIEW - Virtual Instrumentation

Regardless of experience, engineers and scientists can rapidly and cost-effectively interface with measurement and control hardware, analyze data, share results, and distribute systems.

NI LabVIEW - Virtual Instrumentation

LabVIEW is a graphical programming platform that helps engineers scale from design to test and from small to large systems
  • Tight integration with a wide range of measurement hardware
  • Easy-to-use graphical development environment
  • Extensive signal processing, analysis, and math functionality
  • Rapid user interface development for displaying live data
  • Multiple communication options (TCP/IP, UDP, serial, and more) 
The LabVIEW Platform

LabVIEW is an open development platform that has gained acceptance in many different application areas and industries. Why? At its core, the LabVIEW graphical programming language has enabled thousands of scientists and engineers to develop complex measurement and control applications very quickly and easily.

"The graphical nature of LabVIEW makes it easier to develop working code faster. With LabVIEW, quickly drag and drop built-in functions to simplify acquisition, analysis, control, and data sharing so you can spend less time on syntax errors and more time on creating your application. "

Virtual Instrumentation for Handhelds

Any Tablet with an external Hardware can make a nice Instrument. The professional part lies in that external hardware and usability of the software or app. Windows Virtual Instrumentation are well known. Things like USB Scope and Data Loggers have been there for decades.

Now we have Android in which an Open Source product can be developed. The Open Source is both in Hardware and Software.

Android Virtual Instrumentation

These were some questions i got a few years back...

1 - If i had to create a crude "Lux Meter" and "db Meter" using the built-in camera and microphone on a Android Device - How would i Calibrate it ?

2 - Is there a Component(software) for Android to interlace with a Arduino Device as an external interface, This will help us make a DMM/Scope or even a Entire Lab Test bench centered around a Tablet and a Plug-in Mini Instrument Rack.

 All These Instrument Needs a USB/Bluetooth Sensors. Add Bluetooth you can carry your Tablet away from the instrument probing the DUT. (Device under Test)
