Learning a new Language: LabVIEW

Every once in a while we have the opportunity to learn a programming language. With each new language comes the challenges of learning new “vocabulary” as well as the various things that make each language unique. As with any new language, habits from our “native” language carry over. For example as someone who learned to program in Java and C++, leaving types off variables is still hard in Python! LabVIEW, unlike most programming languages is...

How I Saved My Client over $200k with 15 Minutes of LabVIEW Code

"Sorting this material by hand will take two guys about six months and cost us around $60,000," said my client. Someone on the production line had installed the wrong component leading to one dimension being off enough to be unusable, and 3 million parts had gone through before they realized the problem. Even though only 1 in 22 parts were bad, the whole batch was tainted and headed for scrap unless the good parts could...

Using LabVIEW's diff tool with SourceTree

Our team is using BitBucket for source code control and the SourceTree app for Windows to interface with our repositories. We've had a couple of small hurdles getting SourceTree to integrate with the LabVIEW diff tool, but here's a solution that's worked for us. (Credit to Paul Lotz on Atlassian's forum, https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Questions/SourceTree-external-diff-path-issue-on-Windows/qaq-p/394740 ) First, download these scripts and place them in a local folder: Merge Script Diff Script For this example, I'm assuming you'll put...

How Good Communication Makes an Awesome Product

Here is a quick story about some software that became awesome due in a large part to good communication. Our client, AccuPower Solutions , records HD video at 120 frames per second from multiple cameras and force data from a force plate while people jump on it. The data can then be used to draw force arrows on the video and help coaches characterize athletic performance. AccuPower can take the forces and determine velocities and...

Welcome Jake to Endigit!

The Evolution of a LabVIEW Developer

I made and gave this presentation for the Utah LabVIEW Developer Education Day. Let me know what you think or if you have any questions. The Evolution of a LabVIEW Developer from Bryan Heslop

Dining Philosophers in LabVIEW

History As I program in LabVIEW I am surprised by the number of times small bits of code cause large problems. For example, I was working with a large system that communicated with many instruments. I made some changes, tried running the code, and the program locked up! My gut reaction was to blame the LabVIEW development environment or a driver, but in the end I discovered the code I changed caused the hang. Dining...
