d is expected to remain so. Conversely, COM is not available on all platforms and has already been superseded by .NET which was introduced by Microsoft in 2002.
One of the key motivations behind IVI-COM drivers is the desire to develop one driver that works automatically in all development environments. Unfortunately, this comes at the expense of usability. IVI-COM drivers present an interface style that is optimal only in Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0, which was superseded by Microsoft Visual Basic .NET.
Ideally, instrument drivers should present an optimal interface for each development environment in which they are used. For example, instrument drivers should be presented as a set of LabVIEW VIs for use in LabVIEW, a set of C++ classes for use in Microsoft Visual C++, and a set of .NET classes for use in Microsoft Visual Basic.NET and Visual C#.
National Instruments follows this model in implementing IVI drivers. Our focus is on providing native support for NI development environments, LabVIEW and LabWindows/CVI. We also provide support for other environments as they become popular. Our IVI-C drivers ship with ANSI-C interfaces, LabWindows/CVI function panels, and LabVIEW VI wrappers. For message based devices, we include the ANSI-C source code with the driver. We also provide C++ wrappers for IVI drivers for our Measurement Studio users. In the future, we also intend to provide .NET assembly wrappers for our IVI drivers. As Visual Basic 6.0 becomes obsolete through the growing Visual Basic .NET adoption, National Instruments does not plan to develop COM wrappers for our IVI-C drivers.
If you need interchangeability and simulation in your test applications, IVI drivers provide a robust tool to save you significant development time and maintenance costs.
To build an interchangeable test system that can stand the test of time, IVI-C drivePage: All 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 Related biology technology :1
