Creating a Modular LabVIEW Application (Part 2 of 3): Eliminating VI Dependencies

This is the second part of a 3 part series on creating modular, scalable LabVIEW applications. If you haven’t, feel free to read the first section, “Creating a Modular LabVIEW Application (Part 1 of 3): Creating an Expandable Data Format&...


Modular LabVIEW architecture

Many of the LabVIEW applications that DMC develops are based on our internally developed state machine architecture. This architecture has a proven record of allowing us to create flexible, robust, and easy to maintain applications. One of our cli...


Creating a Modular LabVIEW Application (Part 1 of 3): Creating an Expandable Data Format

One of LabVIEW’s strongest points is that it is a very “approachable” programming languages. Since it is a graphical language, it is relatively easy for a “non-programmer” to get a quick, simple, stand-alone program up a...


What is a "National Instruments Certified LabVIEW Architect" ?

... and why should I care if my LabVIEW integrator is properly certified? In most cases, the reason you are considering partnering with DMC to complete a LabVIEW project is because you don't have in-house personnel proficient in LabVIEW develo...


New White Paper: Electric Vehicle Battery Pack Testing

DMC has been involved in quite a few battery testing projects lately. We thought it would be helpful to assemble a compilation of some of the general things we have learned into a new white paper.... "Electric Vehicle Battery Pack Testing in ...


Using Norton Ghost for "Cloning" PC Based LabVIEW Test Stations and for Disaster Recovery

While developing a Windows PC based long term test system running LabVIEW software, we found the use of Norton Ghost to be a very effective means of setting up multiple identical test stand units quickly and efficiently. Basically we took the approac...


Using LVmerge LabVIEW Merge Tool with TortoiseSVN

When multiple developers are working on the same LabVIEW project, version control becomes crucial (that's where TortoiseSVN shines). Even with version control software and good developer communication, you'll eventually end up with two confli...


Check out our new Case Studies!

We have added a few new Case Studies that showcase two of the business areas in which we recently have had a number of projects: Sharepoint Development and Battery Testing. Check out these Case Study entries to read more detail! Sharepoint Time...


Using Devcon Command Line Utility to Rescue Unresponsive USB Devices

When choosing a piece of hardware, you will likely be confronted with many options from different vendors for what interface (PCI, PXI, USB, Serial/GPIB, LXI) that device will use to communicate with your software controller, so how do you choose? ...


IEC61131-3 Data Structures (Encapsulation = Domination!)

Encapsulating your data into custom Data Structures will allow you to Dominate (maybe not the world, but at least your PLC) I'm going to conclude my series on the IEC 61131-3 standard by examining the benefits of Data Structures. (If you misse...
