More Than 100 New Tools Added to the Online Portal in 2007

Dec. 11, 2007 - National Instruments today announced that the LabVIEW Tools Network, an online portal that delivers the industry's largest source of add-ons and connectivity products for NI LabVIEW, has expanded by more than 100 new tools developed by NI and third-party vendors in 2007. With the latest additions to the network, engineers and scientists now can access more than 400 products for use with LabVIEW such as a toolkit that displays user interfaces in any language as well as a tool that automates model generation, control design and controller parameter tuning.

"The tremendous growth of the LabVIEW Tools Network is a testament to the increasing popularity of the LabVIEW graphical design platform," said Jack Barber, manager of the National Instruments Alliance Partner program. "The LabVIEW community continues to create new products that complement the LabVIEW platform and expand its capabilities to empower engineers and scientists in new application areas."

The LabVIEW Tools Network offers a convenient way for LabVIEW users to identify tools to improve their development efforts. Through this online network, users can conduct keyword searches as well as browse by function or industry to find the specialized products they need for their applications. Some of the products available on the network include tools that help users programmatically toggle the language of all text elements in their code such as the LabVIEW Localization Toolkit created by S.E.A. Datentechnik GmbH and add-ons that make it possible to apply advanced modeling, control and parameterization techniques to real-time measurement systems such as the ICP for LabVIEW developed by ExpertControl GmbH.

For third-party vendors, the LabVIEW Tools Network showcases their toolkits and add-ons to thousands of LabVIEW users. Vendors also can differentiate their products by validating them as Compatible with LabVIEW through a recently announced program from NI. Participating companies evaluate their products based on a checklist of requirements that include specifications on documentation, style and function and then submit their checklist to NI for evaluation and confirmation (which is at the discretion of National Instruments). The Compatible with LabVIEW program helps customers make more informed purchasing decisions and encourages third-party vendors to produce high-quality products.
