    matlab vs labview

    not too much..both r simulation softwares....
    But Matlab is more rich in case of toolboxes...

    labview vs simulink

    Completely different !!!

    MATLAB is a very powerful mathematical engine with wide range of toolboxes and other tools, e.g SIMULINK. It can be used for nearly everything "on system level"

    Check : http://www.mathworks.com/

    LABVIEW is a very powerful tool mainly used for testing and DAS "Data Acquisition systems"

    Check: http://www.ni.com/labview/

    difference between matlab and labview

    Both are user friendly..you can use anyone of them depending on how much u can pay??

    meanwhile I won't agree with Aomeen because Labview is also useful in signal processing and infact you can do system level simulation for Backfin or other Analog devices DSP processor through Labview.

    on the other hand u can use Matlab for data acquistion purpose also...

    Added after 19 minutes:

    i m attaching one presentation on Matlab...
    i hope it will help u..


    :D:D

    matlab vs

    Both of them started in a completely different way.
    Matlab WAS essentially a tool for matrix calculation.
    Labview was essentially a tool for instrumentation
    control. However, with the years both are being
    getting closer, Matlab to allow control and data
    adquisition, and Labview to allow more complex
    math calculations.

    However, Matlab still better regarding big matrixes
    and Labview still better than Matlab at creating
    easier applications for instrumentation.

    labview matlab

    trust me ..
    go for matlab instead of labview..
    Labview takes very less time to develop..
    Matlab takes just a little bit more than labview..but it is still powerfull
    matlab gives you enough tweaks to give you what you want whereas in labview you can do it only if you are a indepth c programmer

    differnce between matlab and labview

    i have a question. can i use labview to simulate FDTD?
    i think it can't be used. but i just wanna ask those who know labview well coz i used labview only used labview for a short period of time and i really don't know its capabilities.tnx

    What do you think then of the NI LAbVIEW CVI compiler? There you can the way you want to go...

    LabVIEW contains MAthScript where you can use the Matlab syntax... ex for simulating PID controllers,...

    If I was yours I go for LabVIEW!

    difference between labview and matlab

    One target for simulation, the other target fast prototype and measurement.

    matlab simulink vs labview

    no comparison can be made
    , but both are powerful
    , and one is just new one !

    i think !

    matlab in labview

    Matlab is for DSP, Communication analysis,mathematics modeling...

    Labview is to make Test Engineering easy.

    Matlab can now do test Engineering (GPIB tool Box etc...) and Labview can
    now do more analysis.

    Matlab is like C programming but more user friendly. Labview is a graphical
    way of programming. It seems easy (I like line coding be cause it gives you
    more control). Labview has been adding many web options so there is a lot
    of possibilities with Labview.

    So I would say you should think about what you will need to do and then make
    a decision of which to be come an expert at. If you are going to be a Test Engineer
    Labview will be mandatory.

    Strictly speaking, it's probably possible to implement FDTD in LabView, but it would also probably take a lot more programming time and execute much slower than if you implemented it in Matlab.

    labview and matlab

    I think that it is more suitable to use MATLAB for education and research and LABVIEW for real time industrial control.

    matlab and labview

    Labview is best to adquisition Data
    Matlab is good to manipulate Data from Labview.

    In Matlab there is Simulink

    lab view vs matlab

    In matlab ,NO real time data processing
    Matlab 1st store,then process.
    But labview can perform real time data processing
    hence labview is good from this respect.
    But
    I refer you to work 1st on matlab as it is more user friendly.
    HELP file of matlab can teach u a lot.
    Regards,
