Book Description



LabVIEW™ has become one of the preeminent platforms for the development of data acquisition and data analysis programs. LabVIEW™: A Developer’s Guide to Real World Integration explains how to integrate LabVIEW into real-life applications.


Written by experienced LabVIEW developers and engineers, the book describes how LabVIEW has been pivotal in solving real-world challenges. Each chapter is self-contained and demonstrates the power and simplicity of LabVIEW in various applications, from image processing to solar tracking systems. Many of the chapters explore how exciting new technologies can be implemented in LabVIEW to enable novel solutions to new or existing problems. The text also presents novel tricks and tips for integrating LabVIEW with third-party hardware and software.


Ideal for LabVIEW users who develop stand-alone applications, this down-to-earth guide shows how LabVIEW provides solutions to a variety of application problems. It includes projects and virtual instrumentation for most of the programs and utilities described. Many of the authors’ own software contributions are available on the accompanying CD-ROM.




  • Provides an applications-oriented guidebook on LabVIEW for programmers

  • Covers real-world examples of image analysis, digital image processing, sensor monitoring, power systems, signal processing, photovoltaic cell modeling, and solar tracking systems

  • Explains the integration of third-party software and hardware with LabVIEW

  • Includes software on a CD-ROM
