VIVID Version 2.1 Toolset Enables Rapid Generation of LabVIEWTM Wrappers For IVI-COM Drivers


Vektrex has a longstanding commitment to simplified development and IVI-COM driver usage in the LabVIEW application development environment. LabVIEW, produced by National Instruments, is one of the top application development environments for test and measurement applications. Vektrex worked closely with National Instruments to create the enhanced LabVIEW wrapper generation capability, to ensure that the resultant wrappers are consistent with National Instruments LabVIEW development standards. According to Noel Adorno, Software Engineer at National Instruments: “The VIVID-generated LabVIEW wrappers simplify use of IVI-COM drivers in the LabVIEW environment and allow LabVIEW users to use instrument drivers in a way that is familiar to them.” Melissa Ford, Vektrex’s CEO added, “The LabVIEW wrapper generation capability provided by VIVID further emphasizes Vektrex’s commitment to advance measurement technology helping users migrate their measurements from hardware and test instruments into software.” The feature-rich VIVID V2.1 toolset enables users to rapidly develop COM-based IVI drivers conformant to current IVI specifications. Automated LabVIEW wrapper generation allows test equipment manufacturers and users to rapidly and confidently develop high-quality LabVIEW wrappers for distribution and use with their IVI-COM drivers.
