BME303 Intro. to Computing 3 What is LabVIEW? LabVIEW (Lab oratory V irtual I nstrument E ngineering W orkbench) is a development environment based on graphical programming. LabVIEW uses terminology, icons, and ideas familiar to technicians, scientists, and engineers . LabVIEW relies on graphical symbols rather than text-based language to describe programming actions. LabVIEW is integrated fully for communication with hardware such as GPIB, VXI, RS-232 (serial), RS-485, and plug-in data acquisition boards. LabVIEW also has built-in libraries for using software standards such as TCP/IP networking and ActiveX.

BME303 Intro. to Computing 4 The Concept Behind LabVIEW: Data Flow Traditional text-based programming relies on top-down design, where you must write lines of code that execute “ line by line ”. LabVIEW is based on graphical programming . You do not need an extensive knowledge of programming languages or programming techniques to create virtual instruments. Instead of top-down execution, LabVIEW operates on the concept of data flow .
