  1. How is the tablet holding up. I tried running LV on one. It can read the tablets GPS sensor but everything else comes from the USB. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PpAJeAurr4
  2. Making phase noise measurments the old way using Labview 6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GP6B_ImnoII
  3. Article that mentions the Labview toolkit. http://evaluationengineering.com/articles/201208/the-uncertainty-about-jitter.php
  4. LeCroy JTA2 vs Labview..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bg45FuoeHZk
  5. Video showing a 1970's VNA being run with Labview. This equipment has no CPU and everything had to be calculated by hand. Having the PC crunch the numbers makes this old antique easy to use. Labview starts about half way into it....
  6. Actually I agree with you. There is no way I could do in 6.1i that I can in 2014. I typically only use Labview to automate some sort of test, maybe collect and display some data. In a few rare cases I have used it to replace writting a full on app. It's been a great tool for engineering work. I can get a lot done in short time. I do not typically reuse my code. Most of it is fairly simple and the tests are unique enough there is little to gain. Any features they add that attempt to "help me" draw go to waste on me. I know where I want things and how I want them wired. If the
  7. I must not be the average Labview user. I would guess there are less than 10 features that I use that were added from 6.1i to 2014! Believe me, I cringe every time we decide to upgrade because I know some library will be broke or they will have dropped support for some NI hardware I use. Problems can be something as simple as the serial ports no longer work (and still don't because we all know how hard it is to use Windows to talk to a serial port) to something like the cPCI bus no longer works (which after MANY hours on my part and narrowing it to a single file they were able to find

  9. If I understand the data you show, 2011 is still working even with the 2014 installed. Based on this, I do not believe a clean PC is going to change anything. What does the profile tool show?
  10. I was guessing it would be the low level interface but sounds like this is not the case. Something in how you handle the CAN communications on your side. If I understand your graphs, you suggest you are using 20% with the CAN and without you are at 2%. CAN is a VERY slow bus, 500k maybe a 1meg? To see 20% I suspect you have the code structured so you stall out when waiting for CAN data.
  11. Not too surprised. Again, are 2011 and 2014 installed on the same PC for both tests?
  12. I am curious when you ran the test, did you have just 2011 installed for the first part, then install 2014 to run the second part? Or was 2014 installed, then you ran both tests. Reason I ask is I am curious if this was something in the way they talk with your specific hardware. If they can mess up something as simple as a RS232 port, it's no impossible that they messed up your CAN interface. It will be interesting to hear what you find was the cause.
  13. I loaded the project I last worked on into 2011 and then 2014 while recording the CPU usage. Both use about 25% of the processing power. I really have not seen anything slow down or take more processing power. Wonder what you are doing that you see this sort of change.
  14. Playing with an open source C code generator to build the model for my simulator.
  15. Sub 1Mbit then. This should be no problem for storage. If the boards are able to put out data in say a raw 24-bit mode, it would be better store it in that format and post process them to double. For your speeds, doesn't matter. Typically I don't care about the GUI when I am collecting data. Maybe I just need some sort of sanity check. So I may take a segment of data, say 1000 samples, and do a min/max on it. Then just use the two data points that will be sent to the GUI. I don't like to throw out data or average as it is just too misleading when looking at the data.
