Open Source Virtual Instrumentation—FPGA’s Leveraging the Design
There’s also OpenG who provides a source of information on open source LabVIEW. Jeffrey Travis runs a site with open source tools.
With the advent of the FPGA, virtual instrumentation finds a new phase of development. The FPGA brings software closer to the task at hand (data collection, control, synchronization, etc.). In this paper the authors propose a set of blocks mapping to an FPGA-based system to create a reconfigurable virtual instrumentation system.
