Founding and Growing into a Billion Dollar Technology-Driven Company
MetadataShow full item record
Dr. Truchard discussed both the history and the technology behind National Instruments. NI continues to be a technology-driven company, developing over 200 new products per year and serving over 25,000 companies in test, control, and embedded design applications. LabVIEW is NI’s graphical programming language, which has evolved into an integrated development environment incorporating multiple computational models including data flow, C code, UML compatible statecharts, dynamic system simulation and control, as well as .m file textual math and analysis. The resulting programs can be written as inherently parallel applications, and are easily mapped to parallel hardware architectures such as multicore processors and FPGAs for optimal performance.
