Rapid Development of Intuitive LabVIEW-Based Software for a Touch Screen Medical Device

Profusa is a start-up company made up of talented scientists and engineers working to develop a new generation of biosensors to monitor our body’s unique chemistry in an unprecedented way. At Profusa, their goal is to help physicians salvage limbs of patients suffering from critical limb ischemia by providing them with a new way to continuously measure tissue oxygen before, during, and after surgical treatments. Having already developed a lab prototype using LabVIEW, Profusa teamed up with us to help develop intuitive LabVIEW-based software for their Touch Screen Medical Device. Objective: To develop an easy-to-use, commercial-grade touch screen software interface using NI LabVIEW

Introduction to JKI JSON

Last week we released JKI JSON as a freely available and open source toolkit for the LabVIEW community. To help you all get started with JKI JSON I have create a short tutorial video that explains how to download and install JKI JSON as well as explains the basic usage of the library core VIs. Stay tuned for more posts on LabVIEW and our open source tools for LabVIEW developers. To download JKI JSON and our other toolkits visit our tools page. JKI Tools for LabVIEW Developers

Why do we need dynamically typed JSON library in LabVIEW?

We’ve all used JSON in our applications, to send messages over networks, to connect to REST APIs or to simply save configuration data to a disk. Over the past 10 years JSON has climbed to the most popular data exchange format replacing XML. Since LabVIEW 2013, there has been a native implementation of JSON shipping with LabVIEW. At JKI we are power users of LabVIEW and found the native JSON implementation often not meeting our needs. We came up with our own JSON library, the JKI JSON serialization library, that we just open sourced and made freely available to the LabVIEW community.

JKI Open Sources LabVIEW JSON Serialization Library

We’re excited to announce that we have just open sourced our JSON serialization and deserialization library from LabVIEW. This library extends LabVIEW’s native JSON serialization with powerful features such as ability to unflatten JSON strings directly to LabVIEW variants, a feature that is useful when building reusable software components. Furthermore our JSON serialization library allows unflattening the same JSON string into different LabVIEW data structures allowing for example unflattening of a fixed length JSON array into a LabVIEW cluster. The source code is available on GitHub and a packaged version can be installed using VIPM. JKI JSON Serizalization Library on GitHub

Webinar – Creating a Hardware Abstraction Layer in LabVIEW

Managing complexity is one of the most fundamental aspects of any software engineer’s job definition. Hardware Abstraction is a key concept to master in our quest for achieving such a goal. Join me in my on-demand webinar as I go through the process of designing and implementing an hardware abstraction layer for a mocked-up instrument in LabVIEW. From theory to practice, I will guide you on how to define a hardware abstraction in the context of an instrument’s product development cycle and demonstrate those concepts with JKI State Machine Objects. You’ll learn: What is Hardware Abstraction What makes Hardware Abstraction
