LabVIEW from NI is a graphical programming language and integrated development environment (IDE) to develop automated research, validation, and production test systems. It features a graphical user interface (GUI) and a dataflow programming model which allows users to create programs by dragging and dropping graphical icons, or nodes, and connecting them with wires to form a dataflow diagram. The nodes represent programming constructs such as functions and subroutines, while the wires carry data between them.

LabVIEW can integrate with hardware devices and systems from a variety of manufacturers using NI’s hardware and software platforms, such as data acquisition devices, real-time controllers, and FPGA hardware. It includes a vast library of built-in functions, tools, and drivers that support a wide range of hardware devices, from basic sensors and instruments to complex industrial control systems. LabVIEW also includes the control design and simulation module which allows users to design and implement control algorithms, model dynamic systems, and simulate complex systems in real time.

LabVIEW supports many programming languages such as C, C++, and Python, allowing users to integrate their existing code with LabVIEW applications. It is widely used in research, engineering, and scientific fields for its versatility, ease of use, and ability to integrate with a variety of hardware devices and is an ideal choice for data acquisition, instrument control, and industrial automation applications.
