NEWS RELEASE - Dec. 15, 2005 - National Instruments today released its newest virtual instrumentation tools for Linux operating systems, including NI-DAQmx 8 driver software and new instrument drivers for modular instruments. These innovative products not only triple the number of NI devices for the Linux OS but also make it even easier for the growing number of global Linux OS users to take advantage of the benefits of virtual instrumentation, including increased productivity and lower system costs. These new products build on the release of the NI LabVIEW 8 graphical development platform, National Instruments powerful flagship software that now is fully supported on the Linux OS.

Leveraging PCs and commercial technologies, virtual instrumentation combines the easy-to-integrate NI LabVIEW software with open, cost-effective measurement and control hardware. With the release of NI-DAQmx 8 driver software, Linux OS users now can use ANSI C or LabVIEW 8 to develop distributed systems using more than 200 NI devices for PCI, PCI Express and PXI, including data acquisition, signal conditioning, dynamic signal acquisition and switching hardware. Additional new NI instrument drivers for Linux OS deliver the flexibility and power of virtual instrumentation to more specialized modular instruments, such as digital multimeters, high-speed digitizers, arbitrary waveform generators and instrument control devices. National Instruments also now supports Linux installation for select PXI and VXI controllers.

"The release of NI-DAQmx 8 and additional new modular instrument drivers is evidence of the high level of interest from our customers for Linux-based system development and well as National Instruments commitment to supporting virtual instrumentation on multiple operating systems," said Tim Dehne, NI senior vice president of R&D. "As Linux OS adoption gains momentum across the globe, National Instruments continues to be a leader in high-quality, modular hardware and open, flexible software for platforms that scientists and engineers demand."
