Due to the complexity and variety of DSP applications, designing and testing DSP algorithms with real world parameters can be challenging. LabVIEW graphical development provides a rapid platform to develop, debug, and test applications by integrating with the DSP design tools from Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) and Texas Instruments (TI). Using LabVIEW graphical programming and the real-time interface toolkits for ADI VirtualDSP++ and TI Code Composer Studio, you can exchange bidirectional data between the DSP design tools and DSP simulations, as well as the measurement and stimulus hardware and software, resulting in faster design interactions.

We also explore ways you can harness LabVIEW and NI hardware to quickly build instrumentation for DSP-based products, such as a plant model for a DSP-based control system. This paper walks through how companies in automotive, consumer electronics and aerospace can use LabVIEW with ADI and TI DSP design tools together to reduce development time for audio, video, and control applications.
