NI LabVIEW software focuses on the industry-leading ARM microcontroller
May 2008 - National Instrument China Co., Ltd. (Ni) and arm company recently jointly released the NI LabVIEW embedded module applied to ARM microprocessor. It is an extension of LabVIEW graphical system design platform and is directly applicable to arm 7, arm 9 and Cortex-M3 microprocessor controller series products. This module is the first product that combines the operability of LabVIEW and the performance of ARM microprocessor under the cooperation of the two companies. Arm is the main supplier of 32-bit embedded reduced instruction set (RISC) processors in the industry. At present, it has more than 75% market share and more than 10billion arm nuclear devices. When using this new module, engineers and scientists can create embedded applications in the LabVIEW environment and apply them to up to 260 microprocessor controllers created by the microprocessor IP authorized by arm. Even if it is released, it will not cause great harm to the environment. Some microprocessors are produced by major semiconductor companies in the world, such as ADI (analog devices), luminary micro, NXP (NXP), Freescale Semiconductor, Intel (Intel) and Texas Instruments
"Ni is very honored to let more embedded design engineers who are developing the application of ARM microprocessor controller experience the powerful functions and flexible operation of LabVIEW graphical system design platform," said Dr. James truchard, President and CEO of Ni company and one of the co founders of Ni, "In addition to the labviw embedded module applied to ARM microcontroller, we are also expanding the functions of the embedded design platform to give engineers and researchers a variety of innovative solutions to design, prototype and apply embedded applications faster.
microcontroller is an integrated microprocessor, which includes memory, peripheral interfaces and interfaces, as well as CPU installed on a single chip. Therefore, microcontroller has become the core of embedded system A low-cost solution is ideal for control and interrupt driven applications that require real-time response to incentives. From popular consumer products such as Garmin Nuvi portable navigation devices to industries and medicine such as biac portable muscle stimulators, arm microcontrollers can provide a wide range of applications
labview embedded module for ARM microprocessor has LabVIEW drive function, which helps experts in this field to complete the programming of all controls of ARM microprocessor under the graphical interface, including analog and digital i/o. The module also has the function of desktop simulation. When installing the handsaw, users can run the developed program suitable for ARM microcontroller on their desktop computer without the help of any other hardware. With the help of Ni Multisim, interactive SPICE simulation and circuit analysis software, engineers and scientists can use desktop simulation to simulate the whole signal design chain of the system design simulation environment on a real and comprehensive embedded reciprocating sample
"the intuitive and graphical design function of LabVIEW provides an ideal platform to help those researchers who need to develop microcontrollers based on ARM processors to successfully complete tasks with limited c/c++ programming skills." Reinhard KEIL, director of ARM MCU instrument, pointed out, "in addition, for those experienced R & D personnel, LabVIEW also provides a faster and more efficient programming method."
other functions of LabVIEW embedded module in ARM microprocessor also include a project wizard, which can be automatically configured and fully installed to help users quickly establish projects. At the same time, when a specific hardware abort occurs, it can simplify interrupt drive programming by establishing LabVIEW code operation, so as to realize interrupt management. In addition to software, Ni also provides a development kit. Its options include mcb2370 evaluation board system based on arm 7 Series NXP processor or stellaris lm3s8962, a lunar microprocessor based on Cortex-M3 processor
