Future proof performance with TestStand, LabVIEW and PXI

LabVIEW and TestStand management software along with PXI modular instrumentation provides an integrated solution that can both simplify test development and reduce maintenance for long-term success.


TestStand is a test executive software that accelerates system development and deployment for engineers in validation and production



LabVIEW is a graphical programming environment engineers use to develop automated research, validation, and production test systems



NI PXI hardware allows to meet demanding test objectives with the widest portfolio of industry-leading modular instruments, chassis & software interfaces


Build, customise and deploy Test Systems with TestStand

  • Develop Test Systems Faster

    Rapidly develop and execute test sequences using the TestStand Sequence Editor. TestStand allows you to re-use code written in the most popular languages

  • Simplify System Development

    Customise and enhance the user experience by extending the out-of-the-box features using your language of choice - LabViIEW, Python, C#, C++ or Visual Basic .NET

  • Increase Test Throughput

    Test products in parallel to optimise instrument use and test times with built-in auto-scheduling intelligence

  • Publish Test Results

    Its built-in reporting functionality allows you to log critical results to several industry-standard report formats, such as ATML, XML, HTML and ASCII

TestStand is a test executive and rapid deployment framework that automates, accelerates, and standardises the overall test process across your fleet of testers. It supports the reuse of code from popular languages, simplifies complex tasks such as sweeping, looping, and synchronisation, enables parallel testing, and delivers robust troubleshooting and debugging tools.

The benefits of TestStand


Develop Automated Test & Measurement systems with LabVIEW

  • Rapidly Connect To & Configure Instrumentation

    Interface with any stand-alone modular or traditional box instrument with access to thousands of instrument drivers, all using a consistent programming paradigm

  • Minimise Test Sequence Development Time

    Use hundreds of instrument specific example code modules and measurement libraries for common test scenarios to let you focus on your unique test requirements

  • Quickly Reuse Existing Source Code, Scripts And Libraries

    Integrate existing configuration, analysis, and DUT control libraries by importing graphical, ANSI C or textual maths source code, interoperability with Python scripts, and calling existing DLLs and .NET assemblies

  • Instantly Visualise Measurement Results

    Create user interfaces with hundreds of test-specific drag-and-drop engineering controls that intuitively describe your system to engineers, technicians, or operators

LabVIEW is engineering software for applications that require test, measurement, and control with rapid access to hardware and data insights. For the past 35 years, LabVIEW has been the tool of choice for developing automated test systems. LabVIEW is part of the Test Workflow bundle, which scales in features and capabilities to meet your application requirements. Consider the Test Workflow bundle for LabVIEW and more NI Software.

PXI, high performance systems for validation and production testing

  • Industry Standard

    You’re not locked in. PXI is an open standard with hardware available from more than 60 vendors.

  • High-Performance

    Test faster with high-bandwidth connections between your measurements, the latest processing technology, and your test software.

  • Scalable

    Manage change with PXI. Add measurements, more channels, new analysis routines, or upgrade to the latest processor without having to purchase a whole new instrument.

Why PXI for NI test software?

The power of NI PXI lies in its integration with NI software, offering you full compatibility, efficiency, flexibility, and feature performance.

Combining PXI, LabVIEW and TestStand, you can reduce your test development time and quickly automate your instruments using TestStand parallel test programmes. Test management software, along with PXI modular instruments, provides an integrated test solution that empowers you to build virtually any system faster and with more confidence for long-term success.
