NI Releases the Latest Version of SystemLink™ Software

Sponsored by Businesswire

NIWeek – NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of a software-defined
platform that helps accelerate the development and performance of
automated test and automated measurement systems, announced the latest
version of SystemLink software. NI realizes that managing configuration
activities and data for a fleet of distributed test and measurement
systems can be daunting, especially when systems incorporate a variety
of device configurations and software combinations. With the increasing
number of distributed systems and the exponential growth of data,
engineering teams must manage the disparities across these systems.

SystemLink can help engineers improve operational efficiency by offering
a single interface to quickly set up and manage software, tests and
assets across multiple facilities and test benches. The latest release
of SystemLink includes the new SystemLink Asset Module. This additional
module allows users to centrally track and manage test assets including
usage information and calibration data along with a new dashboard view
that provides quick scans of relevant insights, such as connection
history and calibration forecast.

Additionally, continuous monitoring of system health and performance is
essential for test throughput and production continuity. The recent
update includes new functionality within the SystemLink Test Module that
reports real-time activity, with a new custom dashboard including
pass/fail status and test results. In case of network interruptions,
local test nodes also cache results and send them to the SystemLink
server when a connection can be reestablished. Along with out-of-the-box
support for TestStand, the new version of SystemLink provides APIs for
custom test executives written in LabVIEW, Python and .NET/C#.

NI designed the software specifically to improve configuration processes
by providing a central web application for tasks such as software
installations, device updates and diagnostic functions. SystemLink also
helps maximize instrumentation utilization and minimize cost and
employee time spent on administrative tasks related to managing testers.
Test personnel can use its open architecture to future-proof their
systems and keep up with constantly changing requirements and new

“SystemLink is an essential platform element for customer solutions
that involve systems management and test data management,” said Dr.
Ganesh Devaraj, CEO of Soliton Technologies, an NI STS/Semiconductor
Specialty Alliance Partner. “Combining out-of-the-box LabVIEW and
TestStand integration with open APIs for extensibility, SystemLink
solves many of the technical challenges inherent in developing
distributed solutions, such as software deployment and the aggregation
and storage of test data. In addition, SystemLink integration with
Python and Jupyter Notebook is enabling us to develop and deploy machine
learning and powerful data visualization solutions into the workflow

SystemLink is now available in Chinese and German.
