LabVIEW, the graphical programming tool, is explained in this user's guide. Function by function, the guide details how to put LabVIEW to work on each of the major platforms, including Windows, Macintosh and Sun SPARCstation. The guide outlines a logical analysis metholdology and details how each problem must be defined in terms of signals and data. It then establishes solutions and design techniques using LabVIEW. These techniques are developed and reinforced throughout the text using real-world applications and examples specific to each platform.

GARY W. JOHNSON is known throughout the LabVIEW community as a programming guru extraordinaire. An instrumentation engineer at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, he is one of the early adopters of LabVIEW and the author of all editions of this bestselling guide, the leading primary reference for general LabVIEW application development. He has previously edited LABVIEW POWER PROGRAMMING, a more advanced guide to the software, also available from McGraw-Hill.
Gary has a BS degree in electrical engineering/ bioengineering from the University of Illinois and holds commercial radiotelephone and amateur radio licenses. His profesional interests include physics diagnostics, material xcharacterization, measurement and control systems, electro-optics, communications, transducers, analog circuit design, and, of course, LabVIEW programming. In his spare time, he enjoys woodworking, bicycling, and audio. He and his wife, Katherine, a scientific illustrator, live in Livermore, California, with their twin Afghan hounds, Chloe and Derby.
RICHARD JENNINGS is a Senior Technologist and longtime LabVIEW programmer at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California. He has been using LabVIEW for over 120 years and LabVIEW for Linux since its introduction. He has an AA degree in laser-electro optics from Texas State Technical College in Waco, Texas. He specializes in laboratory automation and finding new ways to use LabVIEW and Linux in Sandia's Combustion Research Facility.
