New Version of NI LabVIEW NXG Software is Now Available

National Instruments has released a new version of LabVIEW NXG engineering system design software. The updated version simplifies the most time-consuming tasks in automated test and automated measurement applications, from setting up and configuring systems to developing test and measurement code and creating web-ready applications. These enhancements help engineers meet challenging time-to-market requirements.

The company has added more than 40 new features to LabVIEW NXG over the past year and a half, resulting in remarkably efficient development software that gives engineers the ability to configure, automate and visualize their test results, all from one place.

The new LabVIEW NXG features include:

  • LabVIEW NXG FPGA Module—Supports USRP (Universal Software Radio Peripheral) and Kintex-7 FlexRIO targets and features new workflows for faster FPGA development and debugging.
  • LabVIEW NXG Web Module—Includes events and properties for dynamic web applications, support for integrating JavaScript Libraries into WebVIs and access to SystemLink Cloud software, an NI cloud service for hosting WebVIs in a simple and secure way.
  • Development Environment Enhancements—Features integration and software engineering tools for rapid customization of applications that include support for registered .NET assemblies as well as new project dependency tools, and the ability to interface with the MATLAB software from MathWorks Inc. The Interface for MATLAB feature lets engineers directly call MATLAB code from the LabVIEW NXG environment for complete reuse of their existing IP.

As NI builds on its more than 30-year investment in software, this latest update to the next generation of LabVIEW continues a series of fast-paced releases aimed to expand engineering capabilities from design to test. Whether an engineer is buying LabVIEW for the first time or has been on an active service contract for years, they can access both LabVIEW NXG and LabVIEW 2018.
