National Instruments continues its support for Linux as a test and measurement platform by tripling the number of products that can use the operating system to over 200 instruments. NI-DAQmx 8 drivers for Linux support PCI, PCI Express, and PXI bus-based instruments, including data-acquisition, signal conditioning, dynamic signal acquisition, and switching hardware. Additional new NI instrument drivers for Linux cover digital multimeters, high-speed digitizers, arbitrary waveform generators, and instrument-control devices. National Instruments also now supports Linux installation for select PXI and VXI controllers.
