Prototype your ideas faster with graphical system design
Building a functional prototype is fundamental in bringing ideas to life. NI LabVIEW graphical programming tools and NI customisable off-the-shelf hardware can transform your idea into a functional prototype in weeks, versus months, and lower the risk of your next project.
Prototyping Faster with Graphical System Design
Prototyping is a crucial part of the embedded design process. The ability to quickly demonstrate and show your idea functioning to investors, customers and management is a great way to get your idea into someone's budget. National Instruments graphical system design tools have proven useful for getting functional prototypes working quickly, without requiring large design teams. NI LabVIEW graphical programming tools can program ready-to-run NI hardware with built-in processors, FPGAs and I/O to prototype medical, green, robotics and industrial machine control applications faster.
