Agilent Technologies’ VEE 8.5 Offers Enhanced Programming Environment and Support for Windows Vista(TM)


Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced the enhanced version of the Agilent VEE 8.5 graphical programming software for test and measurement, equipping users with more functions and support for the latest software tools and operating systems in the industry, including Windows Vista.

Agilent VEE 8.5 enables users to do programming in a modern, streamlined way with the software’s new integrated development environment. In addition to a contemporary 3-D look and customizable toolbars, frequently used windows such as Instrument Manager and Function and Object Browser are more readily accessible with docking and auto-hiding capabilities. The software’s automatic color coding of different object types also makes coding and program reading easier.

Agilent VEE 8.5 allows programmatic change of the VISA interface and address across USB, GPIB and TCP/IP interfaces, so users can communicate with the same instrument without extra configurations or coding. The software also eases integration of systems by allowing users to call its Main User Object from another programming language through its callable server.

Agilent VEE 8.5 supports the latest tools in MATLAB(r) and Microsoft(r) Office, as well as Windows Vista, which offers heightened security, ease of use and improved search capabilities.

“For many years, Agilent VEE has been simplifying programming tasks for engineers and scientists to help them redefine designs sooner,” said Ee Huei Sin, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Basic Instruments Division. “Now, with version 8.5, we’re collaborating closely with educational institutions worldwide so students too can use Agilent VEE in their lab and design projects for better computation, simulation and instrument control.”
