Sioux_LabViewLabVIEW®, developed by National Instruments, is a graphical programming environment primarily used for developing applications that communicate with sensors and measuring instruments.  It is a suitable tool to develop flexible and tailored customer-focused test, measurement and control applications. LabVIEW® applications run on platforms including PC, PXI and Programmable Automation Controllers (PACs). In addition LabVIEW can be employed for modeling systems and ultimately be used  to generate the final code.
