BetterVIEW Acquires Mathematica Link for LabVIEW from e-NoteBooks, Inc.

When e-NoteBooks/Sstreams (that invaluable online portal for scientific and technical computing) ceased operations in late 2001, several of the most important assets were sold. One such item was the Mathematica Link for LabVIEW. The Mathematica Link for LV toolkit merges the symbolic and computational power of Wolfram's Mathematica into the LabVIEW workflow - the combination of the two packages offers expanded opportunities for improved data processing, analysis, and visualization. Furthermore, the toolkit also offers the flexible I/O and GUI possibilities of National Instrument's LabVIEW to Mathematica programmers. The synergy of LabVIEW and Mathematica together far surpasses the capabilities of either environment alone.

BetterVIEW is currently upgrading this powerful toolkit for compatibility with LabVIEW 6.x/ Mathematica 4.1, and this upgrade will be released shortly (Q2 - 2002). The Mathematica Link for LabVIEW will be distributed by Wolfram Research worldwide, but an electronic (download -only) version may be offered directly from BetterVIEW. For more information, availability or pricing, contact Dave Ritter via email.

LabVIEW GUI Design Book - Finally Completed!

After more than a year and a half, Dave Ritter's LabVIEW GUI book is now shipping! This book covers the theoretical, practical, and aesthetical aspects of GUI design and programming - from a LabVIEW perspective. "LabVIEW GUI - Essential Techniques" joins other prestigious titles in the McGraw-Hill LabVIEW series - most notably, the very capable LabVIEW books authored by Gary W. Johnson.
