National Instruments Introduces New Online LabVIEW Tools Network
NEWS RELEASE August 2005 National Instruments today announced the NI LabVIEW Tools Network, the industrys largest source for information on LabVIEW add-on and connectivity tools. Through this portal, NI LabVIEW users have access to thousands of tools compatible with LabVIEW, such as add-on software products, hardware drivers, books, product advisors and training materials from more than 100 companies. Developers, partners and academia can browse the tools directory by function and industry from one location at www.ni.com/labviewtools. As a LabVIEW developer I am always seeking the best tools for my application needs, said Russell McMurtrey, systems engineer for Raytheon Company. Through the LabVIEW Tools Network, I can search for LabVIEW add-on tool specifications as well as review user feedback to find the optimal tools.The LabVIEW Tools Network helps engineers and scientists using LabVIEW locate products through keyword searches and links to third-party instrument, sensor and camera advisors. With this new companion Web site to LabVIEW Zone, users access tool descriptions and links for more information. Third-party developers also can use the network to promote their tools easily. The LabVIEW Tools Network is an ideal venue to promote the connectivity between our Mathcad software and NI LabVIEW, said Lisa-Jean Clifford, business development director for Mathsoft Engineering & Education. By making LabVIEW and Mathcad easily interoperable, Mathsoft and NI are giving design engineers new capabilities for comparing real-world data to theoretical models earlier and more easily in the design process.In addition to the products available from NI and National Instruments Alliance Partners, NI encourages everyone, including users and academicians who want to make their tools commercially available, to list their products.
