We develop new device drivers with LabVIEW. The interface communication with the device, that has to be controlled, is achieved using one or several Vis (Virtual Instruments). The driver-VIs are reusable and enhance the efficacy of the work of a LabVIEW developer.
During the driver development we adapt our work to the design-guidelines and examples of National Instruments. They use VIs and polymorphic VIs. The driver-VIs are placed into, and can be found in, the software library of LabVIEW under the corresponding device name after installation of the driver.
We provide each driver with a Readme-file in html-format. This file contains a complete overview over functions, user guidelines, requirements for the operating system and a revision history. Every VI of the driver is equipped with a VI specific description, which can be displayed using the LabVIEW context-help.
