National Instruments
National Instruments’ (Nasdaq:NATI) NIWeek is an event that covers virtual instrumentation and graphical system design. NIWeek 2007 opens August 7th at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas, for three days of interactive technical sessions, targeted forums, exhibitions and hands-on workshops on the latest developments for design, automation, manufacturing and test.

NIWeek 2007 hosts world-renowned presenters including Dr. James Truchard (NI President, CEO, and Cofounder), who will explain the latest trends and design approaches to address the growing needs of engineering around the world in his opening keynote address. Truchard will show attendees how to apply the graphical system design approach to exciting application areas including algorithm engineering, mechatronics, communications design and high-performance digital test. In addition to Truchard, Tim Dehne, NI senior vice president of R&D, will present a variety of technology demonstrations that illustrate how innovative thinkers are shaping the future, and Jeff Kodosky, NI cofounder and business and technology fellow, will discuss the new technologies that are driving the future of the NI LabVIEW graphical development environment.

The conference features more than 180 technical sessions including hands-on workshops, case studies, user applications and panel discussions from companies and universities such as Analog Devices, Drexel University, Endevo, Intel, Texas Instruments and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The sessions highlight innovative approaches to solving design, test and measurement challenges and showcase the latest products and solutions from customers, partners and NI. The conference program provides attendees with training opportunities and the chance to discover advanced measurement and analysis techniques while networking with industry peers. The conference also features four summits on graphical system design, vision, RF and wireless communications and sound and vibration.

The NIWeek 2007 exhibition includes more than 200 exhibits showcasing innovative virtual instrumentation and graphical system design products and solutions. On the expo floor, attendees can meet face-to-face with engineers from a wide range of industries, try out the latest products and see next-generation innovations in action. Attendees also can see the technical content discussed in the sessions come to life in applications highlighted in the five pavilions featured on the exhibition floor – graphical system design, RF and communications, vision, sound and vibration and LabVIEW.
