National Instruments has released the latest version of LabVIEW SignalExpress interactive PC-based measurement software for acquiring, analysing and presenting data without programming, which supports Tektronix value line oscilloscopes.

Engineers and scientists can use LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition 2.5 to connect to and control all value-line Tektronix oscilloscopes including the new Tektronix DPO3000 and TDS3000C digital phosphor oscilloscopes as well as the MSO4000 mixed-signal oscilloscopes from their PCs with an easy-to-use, drag-and-drop environment. The latest version of the software also introduces time-saving features such as measurement and waveform logging and new interactive reporting capabilities.

LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition provides plug-and-play setup with Tektronix oscilloscopes as well as more than 400 additional modular and benchtop instruments, making it easy for users to connect their stand-alone instruments to PCs and configure all instrument communication, view live measurement data and take control of the oscilloscope. With a few additional mouse clicks, users can log their data to a disk and export the data directly to a spreadsheet application, such as Microsoft Excel, for easy analysis and reporting. The software also offers advanced data-logging features such as alarm monitoring and condition logging as well as the automation of common measurement tasks such as circuit characterization and frequency sweeping. LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition also provides users with more than 200 analysis and processing functions.

In addition, the LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition 2.5 introduces measurement and waveform logging capabilities that make it possible for users to record their measurements directly to their PCs, automating an often tedious and time-consuming task. The software also adds new interactive reporting features such as a drag-and-drop report that displays live data as well as the ability for users to save and print their reports as HTML pages.

"Using LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition, our customers can quickly control their Tektronix oscilloscopes from their PCs and begin data logging and analysis within seconds without any programming. The combination of Tektronix oscilloscopes and LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition provides our customers with compelling functionality and value," said Bob Bluhm, VP of the value scope product line at Tektronix.

LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition LE, a limited feature version of the software, is shipped as part of the standard configuration with all Tektronix value-line oscilloscopes and AFG3000 arbitrary function generators including the new AFG3011 high-amplitude model. Tektronix customers can upgrade to the full version for advanced signal processing, analysis, documentation and data logging.
