National Instruments has introduced LabView 8.5 Student Edition, the latest version of the graphical system design software that gives students a flexible, hands-on environment to design, prototype and deploy engineering and science concepts into real-world applications.
The student edition offers all the features of the LabView graphical development platform, including multicore processing and hybrid programming. The student edition will teach students how to optimise and engineer algorithms for multiple cores as well as deploy threads for control, test and embedded system development.
In addition to multicore processing, students can use hybrid programming with LabView MathScript to combine multiple models of computation or multiple methods of programming. MathScript adds math-oriented, textual programming to LabView, making it possible for students to reuse their .m file scripts created using The MathWorks to use programming approach that best suits their application needs.
Continuing its support of engineering education worldwide, National Instruments offers the LabVIEW 8.5 Student Edition in English, French, German, Japanese, Korean and Simplified Chinese.
