Using Visual Programming Languages for Data Acquisition and Hardware Interfaces
On Thursday evening, October 24th, IEEE Consultants' Network of Northern NJ will hold its monthly general meeting, featuring a presentation by William Koch of Kochworx, Ltd. and Walter Heger entitled & Using Visual Programming Languages for Data Acquisition and Hardware Programming.
Component designers are often required to provide a demo interface or test harness for the hardware components they design. Using Visual Programming tools, such as Microsoft Visual Basic, a designer can quickly create an interface to visually model or control these components. William Koch will share his experience with Microsoft programming tools and his insights during the presentation. Walter Heger will discuss programming in C++, C#, COM/OLE and Java.
Some of the topics Mr. Koch and Mr. Heger will address include:
  • Building hardware interfaces with Visual Basic
  • Creating virtual control panels
  • Component control over RS-232 and other interfaces
  • Future directions for visual development tools
