Operating Pickering Switching & Simulation Modules using LabVIEW™

This video demonstrates how to operate Pickering Switch & Simulation modules in National Instruments' LabVIEW™ System Design Software. 

Our software drivers are capable of supporting all of our 1,000+ switching and simulation products in PXI, LXI and PCI formats and include a LabVIEW wrapper to permit full operation of the Pickering products from the LabVIEW environment. These wrappers are normally installed to the current LabVIEW folder system during installation of the Pickering driver.

Our software drivers are supported under all major Windows platforms in both 32 and 64 bit, and we also provide support for major Linux and MAC distributions. Our Universal Linux driver is a kernel-less interface that enables you to operate our products with all current mainstream Linux releases. All of our switching and simulation products are provided with an IVI Class compliant specific driver. This driver provides complete hardware interchangeability and supports the full functionality of our products. 

We provide open software development interfaces allowing the freedom to create different test scenarios using a wide range of development environments such as C, C++, VB, LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, .NET, MATLAB, Python, TestStand™, Veristand™ and Switch Executive™. Most other environments can be supported on request. LabVIEW-RT and Veristand drivers are available for Real-Time applications. We also provide comprehensive documentation with our drivers and a number of example programs to help you develop test routines with ease.
