Mobile apps for NI hardware and LabView

National Instruments (NI) has released compatible mobile apps for iPhone, iPad and Android devices, helping engineers integrate the latest mobile technology into its applications.

The company says its LabView range combines the portability, ease of use, faster start-up time and longer battery longevity of mobile devices, meaning engineers can more productively access measurement data from data acquisition and embedded monitoring systems. 

'Smartphones and tablets are game-changers for the test and measurement industry,' said Ray Almgren, NI vice president of product marketing core platforms. 'These new apps combine the portability of mobile devices with the power of LabView, helping engineers increase their productivity and meet the latest application challenges.'
