Enthought Receives 2017 Product of the Year Award

Python Integration Toolkit for LabVIEW recognized for extending LabVIEW connectivity and bringing the power of Python to applications in Test, Measurement and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

AUSTIN, TX – May 24, 2017 – Enthought, a global leader in scientific and analytic computing solutions, was honored this week by National Instruments with the LabVIEW Tools Network Platform Connectivity 2017 Product of the Year Award for its Python Integration Toolkit for LabVIEW.

First released at NIWeek 2016, the Python Integration Toolkit enables fast, two-way communication between LabVIEW and Python. With seamless access to the Python ecosystem of tools, LabVIEW users are able to do more with their data than ever before. For example, using the Toolkit, a user can acquire data from test and measurement tools with LabVIEW, perform signal processing or apply machine learning algorithms in Python, display it in LabVIEW, then share results using a Python-enabled web dashboard.

“Python is ideally suited for scientists and engineers due to its simple, yet powerful syntax and the availability of an extensive array of open source tools contributed by a user community from industry and R&D,” said Dr. Tim Diller, Director, IIoT Solutions Group at Enthought. “The Python Integration Toolkit for LabVIEW unites the best elements of two major tools in the science and engineering world and we are honored to receive this award.”

Key benefits of the Python Integration Toolkit for LabVIEW from Enthought:

Enables fast, two-way communication between LabVIEW and Python

  • Provides LabVIEW users seamless access to tens of thousands of mature, well-tested scientific and analytic software packages in the Python ecosystem, including software for machine learning, signal processing, image processing and cloud connectivity
  • Speeds development time by providing access to robust, pre-developed Python tools
  • Provides a comprehensive out-of-the box solution that allows users to be up and running immediately

“Add-on software from our third-party developers is an integral part of the NI ecosystem, and we’re excited to recognize Enthought for its achievement with the Python Integration Toolkit for LabVIEW,” said Matthew Friedman, senior group manager of the LabVIEW Tools Network at NI.

The Python Integration Toolkit is available for download via the LabVIEW Tools Network, and also includes the Enthought Canopy analysis environment and Python distribution. Enthought’s training, support and consulting resources are also available to help LabVIEW users maximize their value in leveraging Python.
