The NI LabVIEW is a software tool for creating and deploying measurement and control systems. It supplies an integrated environment for design, simulation, instrument control, hardware-in-the-loop verification, and microsystem device characterization and validation. LabVIEW is also a central tool in the current Microsystem Integration Platform configuration. The software drivers included with LabVIEW and many other commercially-available instruments enable easy integration and customization in a system context.
