Ever get a new sensor from SparkFun and want to test it out quickly? Maybe you want to do more processing on that data than the Arduino can provide. Imagine getting that data to your computer and having a GUI (graphical user interface) for your sensor within minutes of opening that little red box.
NI LabVIEW is a graphical programming environment used by millions of engineers and scientists to develop sophisticated measurement, test, and control systems using intuitive graphical icons and wires that resemble a flowchart. Through the NI LabVIEW Interface for Arduino Toolkit, you can now leverage all of the benefits of NI LabVIEW graphical programming for your Arduino projects.
The LIFA (LabVIEW Interface for Arduino) toolkit is a free download which allows a LabVIEW developer to easily get data to and from the ever-popular Arduino microcontroller. The basic architecture behind it is that there is an I/O engine programmed to the Arduino which waits for serial commands from LabVIEW and responds with the requested data or action.
This kit includes an Arduino Uno R3 and the LabVIEW Student Edition DVD for Windows and MacOS. Simply load the open-source firmware to the included Arduino Uno, connect it to your computer and install the LabVIEW software.
Note: Shipping to Canada and the USA only. Sorry world.
Note: The LabVIEW Student Edition does not come with SSP (Standard Service Program), and therefore not eligible for direct phone or email support from NI Engineers. Please post all questions to the LabVIEW for Arduino Community page.
