National Instruments (NI) held its annual US conference last August 3 to 5. More than 3,000 engineers, scientists and educators attended the event. The gathering highlighted LabVIEW 2010, which was upgraded using inputs given by customers through NI's LabVIEW Idea Exchange, an online forum.

"We introduced the NI Idea Exchange last year, and during the course of the year we had thousands of ideas as in the product feedback forum where our R&D engineers and users work together to submit ideas, collaborate on their development, and vote for the ones they like best," said John Graff, vice president of marketing at NI.

In addition, LabVIEW 2010 code executes an average of 20 percent faster via a low-level virtual machine software complier. The open source compiler enabling the speedup has also been adopted by Apple, Adobe and Google.

Other software update releases came from NI's partners.

For example, Symbio, a certified National Instruments alliance partner, has released the latest version of its Goop (Graphical Object Oriented Development) at NI Week 2010.

Symbio's Goop development suite 4 is the only Unified Modeling Language (UML) tool built in and integrated with NI's LabVIEW.
