Integrating Data Acquisition and Instrument Control to Your Scilab Scripts

By Darcy Dement, National Instruments

While the power of Scilab is in the built-in functions and syntax for vectors and matrices, it's often useful to add interactivity to your scripts and interface them with live signals. The link between National Instruments LabVIEW and Scilab makes this simple. With the freely downloadable link, you can quickly build graphical user interfaces, control instrumentation via the extensive network of 8000+ instrument drivers, and interface to integrated data acquisition hardware.
