Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 08, 2013
Viewpoint Systems, Inc. announced today at NIWeek that National Instruments named the company’s TSVN Toolkit as the 2013 LabVIEW Tools Network Community Product of the Year. Viewpoint is a Platinum NI Alliance Partner and a premier user of NI LabVIEW for test system and embedded system development. Viewpoint developed the TSVN Toolkit to provide engineers with tight source code control integration into LabVIEW, benefitting application development for the greater LabVIEW community.
“Source code control is critical to our implementation processes because it’s a key to the success of our customers,” said Jim Campbell, President at Viewpoint Systems. “Clients value best practices in system development, and the extended capabilities that we get with our TSVN Toolkit improve our configuration management. We are proud to be recognized and pleased to be able to share this toolkit with the LabVIEW community. Enhancing LabVIEW speeds its adoption in sophisticated applications.”
Viewpoint implemented the full power of Subversion in the LabVIEW development environment as a source code control provider to create the TSVN Toolkit. LabVIEW developers using this toolkit can step beyond the capabilities of the built-in source code control provider in LabVIEW and use the extended feature set offered by Subversion and TortoiseSVN.
“The tight integration between the TSVN Toolkit and LabVIEW required getting under the hood with the LabVIEW platform in ways that required discussions with NI engineers, and NI was happy to support us as we created a beneficial tool for the LabVIEW community,” said Eric Metzler, Senior Engineer at Viewpoint Systems. “And on top of that, our excellent relationship with the LabVIEW Tools Network group helped guide this tool onto ni.com.”
