Whether working independently or as part of your team, we can develop customer specifications, provide turnkey solutions, and upgrade existing applications.

LabVIEW Development
As a National Instruments (NI) Gold Level Alliance Partner, Wineman Technology has a team of 29 engineers – including 6 LabVIEW Certified Architects, 11 LabVIEW Certified Developers and 3 LabVIEW Certified Associate Developers – uniquely experienced in delivering both custom software applications and successful software products. We are the original developers of NI VeriStand and also received the 2012 NI Product of the Year award for our INERTIA test software. We also regularly participate with NI as part of their beta user program to provide early feedback on software functionality and feature additions.

Our expertise includes a vast knowledge of both NI and non-NI software, including:

  • NI LabVIEW

- LabVIEW Real-Time Module

- LabVIEW FPGA Module

- LabVIEW Embedded Module for ARM Microcontrollers

- INERTIA real-time control add-on

- Dynacar vehicle simulator add-on

  • NI LabWindows/CVI
  • Microsoft Visual Basic
  • C and C++
  • SQL and MySQL
  • Oracle Database
  • IEC 61131-3 for PLCs

With our diverse customer base, wide range of project experience, and team of engineers skilled in multiple disciplines, we are able to provide so much more than other software development firms are capable of. By working with the customer to establish the architecture definition, we deliver solutions tailored to meet each specific application, whether it involves using graphical object-oriented programming (GOOP), state machines, or embedded coding. In addition, our staff has extensive knowledge using the latest commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies – including familiarity with virtually all available National Instruments platforms – for creating complete turnkey systems with hardware and software integration.
