LabVIEW

   I’ve been thinking to add this section to my web site for quite long, but haven’t got the time and desire to actually do it. Finally, that time has come. I had my first encounter with LabView back in June 2009. My first job after university was hardware verification of ICs and it involved learning and using LabVIEW (8.5 at the time). I am still working in the same field and I enjoy it. I have many different pieces of code that I would like to share. Some are quite simple, others are more complex, but all could be useful to someone. I haven’t shared my code before, because LabVIEW was only accessible for professional use at a price out of reach for hobbyists. In 2016 National Instruments released an affordable full featured Home version at a price of just USD50 (compared to more than USD2000 for Professional). The catch is that all VIs have a watermark, but at that price almost any hobbyist will live with it. At first it was sold only in USA, then delivered on disc to other countries, but with high shipping costs. In 2017 anyone could buy it online and just download, install and activate it. This is what made me decide to spend some time and share some code for hobby use. All my code is compatible with LabVIEW 2014, which is the only Home version available at the time I am writing this.

   WordPress does not support zip file uploads and because of that all download links will lead to my Google Drive. You can access individual pages for each of my code packages by clicking on the links below or by using the LabVIEW menu at the top of my web site. Download links are available both in the list below and on every individual page.

   Some of the projects will also contain *.vip file in the zip package. Those are installation packages for JKI VIPM (VI Package Manager), which will automatically install in Program Files add the package to your LabVIEW palettes for easy access. You need JKI VIPM installed for this to work. There is a free version, which you can download from their website. I do not publish my packages through their system, because that requires full VIPM license, which costs USD499. That’s just too much for hobby use.

LabVIEW Code Packages:

   This page is under construction. I will add what I have for sharing over time.

   There is no option for automatic sorting of a table in WordPress, so I will just add new packages at the bottom. I will try to keep items in the menu sorted alphabetically.
