Virtual Instruments for Data Translation's USB and PCI Data Acquisition Systems

Data Translation announces the release of a new version of its LV-Link software drivers for LabVIEW®. LV-Link is a library of Virtual Instruments (VIs) that provide quick and easy access to Data Translation's USB modules and PCI boards in LabVIEW®. Both the 32- and 64-bit versions of the popular graphical programming environment are supported. LV-Link 3.0 also includes a comprehensive, updated Help and many additional example programs to make application development even easier.

The virtual instruments have been specially developed for high-speed data acquisition and output. They integrate all the subsystems and features provided by Data Translation's USB and PCI measurement hardware, including analog I/O, digital I/O, counter/timers, quadrature decoders, etc., and streaming data to disk at full speed.

The use of polymorphic VIs allows a significant reduction in the number of virtual instruments within a LabVIEW® application. Polymorphic VIs combine the functionality of different VIs into one VI that takes on different characteristics depending on the selected subsystem.

The software drivers are based on the DT-Open Layers .NET class library and are compatible with NI virtual instruments. LV-Link 3.0 supports LabVIEW® 8.5.1 or higher, and LabVIEW® 2009 or higher. The previous LV-Link Version 2.0 is available for users of earlier LabVIEW® releases. Both LV-Link versions are provided free to users of Data Translation data acquisition hardware and can be downloaded at
