Welcome to the NIUser Wiki-Web


This web has the purpose to provide information about National Instruments products as well as activities and projects at GSI.

It is meant as a platform for collaborative work and documentation as well as exchange of experience for users of National Instruments hardware and software at GSI. For this purpose, we have set up the NIUserGroup, which is open to all NI users at GSI. How to join the NIUserGroup: Ask a member of the NIUserGroup!

EE/KS provides user consulting for projects with National Instruments products at GSI.
