National Instruments Expands Academic Site License To Better Address The Needs Of Professors, Researchers And Students


National Instruments (Nasdaq:NATI) today announced an expansion of its popular academic site license to better address the needs of professors, researchers and students through university departments, colleges and campuses. Part of the expansion features a new circuit design and simulation option, as well as a student install option that gives students the opportunity to use software included in the license on their personal computers.

The National Instruments Academic Site License is a comprehensive suite of powerful, full-featured NI software designed to fit the needs of academic institutions worldwide. It offers unlimited seats and is now packaged in DVD-ROM format for easier access to the proper software for specific application areas, including control design and mechatronics, circuit design and simulation, signal and image processing, measurements and data acquisition, embedded design and RF and wireless communications.

The NI Academic Site License features the Windows Vista-compatible National Instruments LabVIEW, which includes native support for text-based math with MathScript. With MathScript, users can integrate their existing m-files created through The MathWorks, Inc. MATLAB® software, or create new scripts with NI LabVIEW and mix and match graphical and text-based approaches to meet their design application needs and quickly prototype systems.

“We expanded the NI Academic Site License to make it easier for educators teaching courses in areas such as circuits, controls, signal and image processing, communications and embedded systems to purchase the software they need,” said Ray Almgren, NI vice president of product marketing and academic relations. “The new Student Install Option has already been selected by several large universities to give students access to our software on their personal computers for these courses.”

The new circuit design and simulation option for the Academic Site License consists of Multisim, the Multisim MCU Module and Ultiboard, which compose a software suite that equips students and professors with world-class tools for schematic capture, interactive simulation, board layout and integrated test.
