Graphical programming software now reduces programming complexity

LabVIEW 8.5 graphical system design platform for test, control and embedded system development now reduces the programming complexity commonly associated with sophisticated control systems based on multicore and FPGA architectures. With the parallel dataflow language of LabVIEW, engineers can balance several measurement and control tasks between the multiple processor cores available on today's standard PC platforms. For added performance, LabVIEW 8.5 offers deterministic, real-time multicore tools; new machine monitoring functions for both desktop and FPGA platforms; and expanded OPC connectivity to hundreds of industrial devices.
