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.

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!
