Open Source LabView equivalent for Linux
Alan Carvalho


LabView (Wikipedia entry) is a platform to develop electronic tests and real world interfacing. It can be used to control and test real world experiments. It is a nice software and although it is not directly related to embedded system arena it is very useful to validate initial phase of many embedded system projects and to production tests.

Unfortunately there is not an open-source equivalent to this software, but there is some infra-structure which could be used to develop it. The signal acquisition layer could benefit of Comedi drivers API (this is now becoming part of Linux kernel).

Related work

The user interface could be based on some of existent simulation software, like Ksimus, or a modified version of Lintouch HMI.
