Test-system development with standards-based graphical programming can be complicated. Agilent Technologies' latest visual engineering environment (VEE), Pro 7.0, streamlines the process. The VEE uses the simple and open Microsoft .Net Framework that supports open I/O standards for local-area networks (LANs), the USB bus, and IVI-com drivers.
The .Net Framework is an integral Windows component for building and running next-generation software applications and Web services. It simplifies the programming effort needed to create files, send e-mail reports, and invoke Web pages.
VEE Pro 7.0 features "undo" and "property editing" capabilities in more than one level. As a result, engineers can talk to and gather data from an instrument. One call to a standard .Net class instantly produces a program that would have taken hours prior to VEE Pro 7.0.
"We listened closely to our customers and provided the most requested enhancements to VEE Pro 7.0," says Mark Pierpoint, vice president of Agilent's Measurement and Analysis Software Group.
Agilent's VEE Pro 7.0 is priced at $1495. Upgrades from previous versions of VEE start at $389.
