Graphical programming tool simplifies 32-bit embedded design

Engineers can take advantage of the high-level graphical programming paradigm of National Instruments LabVIEW software to save time prototyping and deploying embedded applications to 32-bit microprocessors. The LabVIEW Embedded Development Module extends LabVIEW to any 32-bit embedded processor, providing a graphical approach to algorithm design, simulation, prototyping and deployment of custom designs for embedded systems.

With the LabVIEW Embedded Development Module, engineers can design algorithms and program their applications using an intuitive graphical dataflow language. In addition, LabVIEW graphical front-panel controls and indicators permit rapid interactive experimentation and debugging of embedded code, especially when compared to conventional approaches.

The LabVIEW Embedded Development Module includes more than 400 analysis functions for signal processing, linear algebra, curve fitting, statistics, and calculus. In addition to out-of-the-box measurement functionality for integrating real-world data early in the process, the module features a framework for integrating I/O drivers and board support packages for taking advantage of specific processors with LabVIEW. Designers can develop their applications using the LabVIEW graphical environment and then automatically generate C code to integrate with their chosen processor tool chains.
