LabVIEW is a graphical programming environment from National  Instruments. It offers fast and flexible creation of programs with modern user interfaces for controlling and measuring. It is available for different  systems (Windows/Linux/RT-OS) and is supported by many instrument manufacturers of industrial automation.

The HZB campus license makes it possible to install LabVIEW and many additionals on every (powerful) computer.

The installation is free of charge for you. After buying a new computer, LabVIEW can be installed (like other software) by the departement IT. Otherwise you can contact our help desk via telephone (42500) or write an email.

How Do I Learn LabVIEW?

Courses at HZB:
Every year in february we organize a course for our students at campus Wannsee. Most time, there are free places, which can be booked by the workforce of the HZB. Please register in time via email. The courses will be held in german.

Special courses (FPGA, performance,...) we can organize as in-house-courses. They must be payed by the participants.
