Data Translation rolled out version three of their LV-Link virtual instruments library. LV-Link 3.0 VI library enables National Instruments LabVIEW programmers to access the data acquisition features of DT-Open Layers-compliant USB and PCI devices. The software helps engineers to quickly and easily measure and control analog I/O, digital I/O, quadrature decoders, and counter/timer signals, and stream data at full-speed. LV-Link 3.0 is provided free and can be downloaded now.
Sigasi is releasing a free Starters Edition of their Sigasi HDT design entry and code comprehension tool. The starters edition was designed to replace traditional text editors like Vi and Emacs. Sigasi 2.0 Starters Edition will be permanently available free of charge. The second generation of their IDE tool for the VHDL language has been in public beta for three months.
