Mathematica Link for LabVIEW

Mathematica Link for LabVIEW lets you take advantage of Mathematica's
legendary calculating and graphical capabilities directly from within
LabVIEW, the leading software for instrument control and data acquisition.
This link enables you to:
* plot theoretical responses of your instruments,
* analyze and visualize data you've just collected,
* build custom plotting and display functions, and
* quickly prototype custom control algorithms and specify mathematical
manipulations of your data in Mathematica's intuitive programming language.

Included with Mathematica Link for LabVIEW are more than 140 Virtual
Instruments (VIs), which can act as interfaces to Mathematica. VIs send
information--either collected in LabVIEW or provided by you--to
Mathematica. Mathematica then performs specified calculations or plots the
graphics and sends the results back to LabVIEW. Mathematica Link for
LabVIEW includes VIs for generating Mathematica graphics, evaluating
calculations in Mathematica, and developing your own customized VIs.

Mathematica Link for LabVIEW also lets you control LabVIEW from within
Mathematica, so you can:
* direct experiments,
* implement real-time control algorithms,
* record and analyze the resulting data into electronic laboratory
notebooks, and
* generate professional-looking reports using Mathematica's typesetting
features, buttons, and palettes.

Mathematica Link for LabVIEW also works with MathLink, Mathematica's
built-in communications protocol. MathLink provides functions for
exchanging complex data in a homogenous way between computers of different
platforms and for using different transfer protocols. With MathLink, you
can exchange data between LabVIEW applications or build your own
MathLink-compatible applications in LabVIEW without having to master
intricate protocols such as TCP or PPC. MathLink functions take care of the
details for you, allowing you to program your application with higher-level
functions than would otherwise be possible.
