In its latest version, LabVIEW 8.5 Student Edition offers all the features of LabVIEW graphical development platform while adding multicore processing and hybrid programming. The goal is to provide students with software that facilitates project-based learning, leverages the latest industry performance standards, and gives more programming options for creating applications and engineering algorithms. Multicore processing, the development of parallel applications running concurrently on two or more processor cores, teaches users to optimize and engineer algorithms for multiple cores as well as deploy threads for control, test, and embedded system development. In addition, students can employ hybrid programming via MathScript to combine multiple models of computation or methods of programming. MathScript adds math-oriented, textual programming to LabVIEW, making it possible to reuse .m file scripts created using MATLAB and other software. Price for LabVIEW Student Edition starts at $59.
