National Instruments (NI) released its virtual instrumentation tools for Linux OS, including NI-DAQmx 8 driver software and instrument drivers for modular instruments. These products not only triple the number of NI devices for the Linux OS but also make it even easier for the growing number of global Linux OS users to take advantage of the benefits of virtual instrumentation, including increased productivity and lower system costs.

Leveraging PCs and commercial technologies, explained NI, virtual instrumentation combines the easy-to-integrate NI LabVIEW software with open, cost-effective measurement and control hardware. With the release of NI-DAQmx 8 driver software, Linux OS users can now use ANSI C or LabVIEW 8 to develop distributed systems using more than 200 NI devices for PCI, PCI Express and PXI, including data acquisition, signal conditioning, dynamic signal acquisition and switching hardware.

"The release of NI-DAQmx 8 and additional modular instrument drivers is evidence of the high level of interest from our customers for Linux-based system development and well as NI's commitment to supporting virtual instrumentation on multiple operating systems," said Tim Dehne, senior vice president of R&D at NI. "As Linux OS adoption gains momentum across the globe, National Instruments continues to be a leader in high-quality, modular hardware and open, flexible software for platforms that scientists and engineers demand," Dehne added.
