National Instruments and Agilent Technologies to Increase LabVIEW Support for Agilent Instruments
National Instruments and Agilent Technologies have announced a cooperative effort to create National Instruments LabVIEW Plug-and-Play instrument drivers for Agilent LXI, USB and GPIB instruments. The two test and measurement companies are working together to provide instrument drivers to engineers and scientists shortly after the release of new Agilent measurement products, making it even easier to combine the popular graphical development platform NI LabVIEW with the power and breadth of Agilent instruments.“T
Today, more than 750 Agilent instruments are supported by National Instruments, and the drivers for those instruments are free and available for download from the NI Instrument Driver Network at www.ni.com/idnet. With this new initiative, Agilent plans to provide National Instruments with early access to its new products so NI can develop native LabVIEW Plug-and-Play instrument drivers. This cooperative effort facilitates the timely delivery of drivers whose functionality reflects the instruments’ full capabilities.
“Working with Agilent to create LabVIEW instrument drivers guarantees that engineers and scientists can easily create tightly integrated measurement and automation systems,” said Eric Starkloff, Director of Test Product Marketing for NI. “This effort is part of our ongoing commitment to provide an open platform for automating and controlling instruments over any communication bus, including GPIB, LAN-based LXI, PCI Express, PXI, Serial or USB.”
