National Instruments increases your productivity in developing test, control, and design systems by providing software products for a wide range of functionality.
Smart devices keep getting smarter, thanks to increased use of software. This proliferation of software has created new demands for how integrated circuits (ICs) are designed and manufactured. New designs and manufacturing processes demand new types and methods of testing. Regardless of the smart device or its composition, the demands for businesses remain the same: ensure reliability, deliver products to market quickly, and remain cost-competitive.
The future of communications is NOW, and that means incredibly fast data rates and even greater communication capacities. The Internet of Things (IoT) has brought about an entirely new and formerly unimaginable level of real-time interaction between people through the use of intelligent devices. With the proliferation of 5G wireless technology, our already-hyperconnected world is poised to jump several levels into the future.
National Instruments’ new Semiconductor Test System (STS) is a versatile and useful piece of equipment that offers huge flexibility and numerous benefits for your company. A huge plus for companies familiar with NI products, STS is based on the PXI platform that allows for future expansion and replacement of failed or outdated hardware. It also allows easy code sharing between other NI products, LabVIEW and TestStand, to make knowledge-sharing easy while reducing development and testing times.
Opinions vary on the importance of filing for a patent for a unique invention or product. An article in Forbes Magazine claims, “Around 97% of all patents never recoup the cost of filing them.” Dennis Crouch, from the Center for Intellectual Property & Entrepreneurship at the University of Missouri Law School, states on his website, “About 50% of patents expire prematurely because their owners decline to pay the required maintenance fees.”
Autonomous vehicles are gaining the interest of consumers, researchers, and car companies, all who wish to increase user safety. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD) feature parking assist sensors, automatic braking systems, and even backup cameras to increase driver and passenger safety, as well as the safety of other vehicles and pedestrians. As these features are viewed by consumers as more critical, automotive companies will need better and faster testing solutions for these systems.
Why is National Instruments the global leader in automated test and measurement solutions? It’s because they continue to develop and produce flexible, reliable tools that are useful for a variety of industries. One such example is National Instruments’ SLSC platform. This product solution was the 2018 winner of an Engineering Impact Award in the Aerospace and Defense category.
On September 12, 2019, Breakthrough Central Texas, an Austin-based non-profit educational assistance organization, made a major announcement concerning National Instruments from the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum, at the University of Texas at Austin campus. With the assistance of NI, Breakthrough Central Texas unveiled The Breakthrough Challenge.
