The LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit 2.0 is an add-on that links the LabVIEW graphical development environment with The MathWorks Inc. Simulink modeling and simulation software. According to the company, with this toolkit design engineers can build custom user interfaces to interactively verify Simulink models and deploy these models to real-time hardware for control prototyping and hardware-in-the-loop testing.
The LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit includes a connection manager that engineers can use to create custom LabVIEW-based graphical user interfaces that connect to parameters and output of Simulink models. Engineers can incorporate their application knobs, dials, gauges and graphs into a single interface to verify their simulation models. In addition, they can implement batch simulations to validate Simulink models with a range of test parameters.
Engineers use the same custom user interface to connect to a real-time PXI system to transition from verification to hardware prototyping. Engineers can download the LabVIEW test application and Simulink model onto PXI hardware to determine how the prototype model performs when connected to a real system.
Pricing for the LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit 2.0 starts at $995.
