What happens when three JKI engineers walk into a solar hackathon armed with LabVIEW and a passion for solving technical challenges and making a big difference in the world? They win, of course! Yes! Our team won 2nd place at the 4th annual SunCode solar hackathon organized by Powerhouse. This event brings together developers, designers, and entrepreneurs that want to create the solar software, financial solutions, and design projects that shape the future of the renewable energy industry.

We’re pleased to announce the availability of VI Package Manager 2016! Performance Improvements In this release, the VIPM team has worked hard to improve performance in several areas: startup time ~2x faster check network for packages ~2x faster search for packages ~5x faster sort packages ~5x faster We’re confident that these efforts will be greatly appreciated by VIPM users. Some Bug Fixes Too! Additionally, we’ve worked to fix some important issues affecting users, such as mass compiling of source only VIs. We hope you like VIPM 2016 and the improvements we’ve put into this release make your work with LabVIEW even more efficient! Get
At JKI, we love working on projects that make a big difference in the world: from biotech, to medical devices, to clean energy, and beyond. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce JKI’s sponsorship and technical advisor role to the CalWave Power Technologies team at UC Berkeley, as they gear up to compete in the finals for the DOE Wave Energy Prize later this summer. (We’re also excited, because we have several UC Berkeley Engineering and Physics grads at JKI — Go Bears!) “We are very excited to have JKI as a partner and technical advisor on this impactful project,” said Marcus
Professional User Interface Design for LabVIEW Do you have an important LabVIEW application that does not look very professional or modern? Did you know that you can increase your return on investment (i.e. generate more business value) by improving the visual design and user experience of your software? Are you an engineer or scientist who appreciates the value of good software design, but don’t really know where to start? After all, you’re not a graphic designer. At JKI, we’re experts in transforming ordinary LabVIEW programs into professional, modern applications that users will love! A simple voice recorder app, written in LabVIEW, that JKI transformed into an
Over the last several years, touchscreen technology has become a staple feature in our world. At JKI, more and more of our customers are choosing to create their apps using touch UIs in LabVIEW. We know the importance of writing great code, but without a good user experience and stylish design, great code can go unnoticed. Join me in a 45-minute webinar where I’ll show you the fundamentals of user interface design. Take that theory into practice to convert a UI into a modern, touch ready application and learn some simple techniques for customizing controls along the way. You’ll learn: Guidelines for
We are happy to announce that the JKI State Machine Objects (SMO) framework for LabVIEW has been released under an open source license on GitHub! The State Machine Objects (SMO) framework is an open-source and lightweight development JKI State Machine based framework for LabVIEW for creating extendable and modular applications using object-oriented design. At JKI, we truly want you to collaborate in making the SMO framework even better. Help us shape and evolve the framework for the benefit of the entire LabVIEW community. All the source code and installation instructions are available on the project’s GitHub page, where you can create forks, make your
It’s been an eventful 2015 here at JKI! Scroll down for a list of our exciting results and fun facts for 2015… 1… Video Produced! This year, we made a video where Jim Kring explains how JKI uses LabVIEW to help our customers get their innovative high-tech products to market with speed and impact. Watch the video and let us know what you think! 2… New JKI Engineers Hired! Welcome to the team, Danielle and Ian! We’re excited to have you on-board (and up our number of physics grads, too)!
Wishing You a Wonderful Holiday Season! With sincere appreciation for all that you do, we wish you a joyful holiday season and a Happy New Year! – The JKI Team
How many times you have had good intentions to write unit tests for your LabVIEW project but when the time came you had more pressing fires to put out? Or how often have you created a small debug VI to test your software but never created a unit test to cover the same functionality? JKI is excited to announce Caraya, a new experimental open source assertion and unit testing framework for LabVIEW. It takes a whole new approach to unit testing; your VI is your test. Caraya allows you to convert your manual test VIs you use for debugging into
On Demand Webinar with LabVIEW Champion, Tomi Maila If you are a frequent user of LabVIEW, then you’re probably already familiar with Actor Framework, the standard tool that has shipped out with LabVIEW for many years. Knowing how to maximize this tool though, is another story. The learning curve can be rather steep as it requires a paradigm shift in thinking on how to architect applications. We’ve created a new webinar with one goal in mind: to help users feel more familiar with the Actor Framework and actor model. Join LabVIEW Champion and JKI partner, Tomi Maila in a 40-minute
