LabVIEW offers a graphical programming approach that helps you visualize every aspect of your application, including hardware configuration, measurement data, and debugging. This visualization makes it simple to integrate measurement hardware from any vendor, represent complex logic on the diagram, develop data analysis algorithms, and design custom engineering user interfaces.

More information on LabVIEW can be found here.

Capabilities, Benefits, and Key Features

  • Measure Physical Systems With Sensors or Actuators
  • Validate or Verify Electronic Designs
  • Develop Production Test Systems
  • Design Smart Machines or Industrial Equipment

Limitations / Technology Requirements

LabVIEW can be downloaded on Mac, Windows, or Linux. 

What can I expect?

  • Support Tier: Tier 2 - Sponsor Support: If students were to contact IT Help, they refer the user to an individual sponsor, typically an instructor of a given course. The sponsor would work directly with the vendor on any unresolved issues.

  • Acquisition Model: Direct Download: Software is downloaded to a local computer and installed to run from that specific devic

  • Licensing Model: User license server: Miami or the Vendor hosts a license server that the application uses to checkin and validate that you still have permission to use the application. The license server typically has one or more administrators that review and ensure the licenses have been deployed according the terms and conditions of use.

  • Authentication Model: Independent Registration: The user is required to create an account individually with the application vendor.

Who may use it?

Faculty and staff may install Labview using Software Center on their Windows work computer (owned by Miami University).

Students may access from a lab computer where LabView has been installed.

How do I get started?

  1. Click Start, then begin typing "Software Center" to search for the Software Center application. Select Software Center from the search results (Note: If Software Center is missing from your work computer, request it using the button on the right.)
  2. Ensure that the Available Software tab is selected.
  3. Select a software title and then click the Install button.
  4. Watch the Status column to view the software's installation status. Larger software packages may take awhile to install.

Is there a charge to me or my department?

Labview is licensed for use on computers owned and operated by the university.
