National Instruments (NI) announced the latest version of its LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit, giving control system design and test engineers a seamless link between the NI LabVIEW graphical development environment and The MathWorks Simulink software. With the LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit 3.0, NI said, engineers can now reduce development time for hardware-in-the-loop systems with new configuration-based deployment to CAN and FPGA I/O; run-time parameter selection; and thread scheduling for multirate models.

Engineers can use configuration-based functionality in the LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit 3.0 to easily create custom hardware-in-the-loop test systems with the NI I/O of their choice, including CAN, reconfigurable I/O (RIO) and CompactRIO FPGA-based I/O, in addition to existing NI data acquisition I/O support. The software's configuration dialog makes it easy for engineers to generate VIs for real-time implementation by simply mapping I/O channels to model inports and outports, added the company.

With the LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit, engineers can build custom LabVIEW user interfaces to view and control a Simulink model during run time. Engineers working with very large models can now use this toolkit to remap controls and indicators to different model parameters and signals during run time.

By combining the LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit 3.0 with the CompactRIO embedded control system, engineers can use built-in FPGA functionality to create real-world implementations of control models for rapid control prototyping. Engineers can also take advantage of the built-in FPGA functionality and powerful PXI processor using NI R series devices that integrate with the new toolkit for creating large-scale hardware-in-the-loop test systems.
