 +                    <!-- NI products ​ --------------------------------------------------------------- -->
 +                    <​h3>​NI products using the C code generating engine</​h3>​
 +                    The C-Code generating engine is part of the following products: <br>
 +
 +                    <b>NI LabVIEW Embedded Module for Analog Devices Blackfin</​b>​ (last Version 2009) <br>
 +                    This module has been used to program most of the Zbrain System Targets. <br>
 +
 +                    <b>NI LabVIEW Embedded Module for ARM Microcontrollers.</​b>​ (still available) <br>
 +                    This module can be used to program tiny intelligent nodes with manageable complexity. <br>
 +
 +                    <b>NI LabVIEW Microprocessor SDK</​b>​ (Last version 8.6) <br>
 +                    Used to program any 32bit microprocessor. <br>
 +
 +                    <b>NI LabVIEW C Generator</​b>​ (released with LV2010) <br>
 +                    Used to translate VIs to standard ANSII C-Code deployable on virtually any microprocessor.
 +
 +                    <!-- Labview on Microprocessor ​ --------------------------------------------------------------- -->
 +                    <​h3>​LabVIEW on Microprocessor 2011</​h3>​
 +                    In collaboration with National Instruments,​ Schmid Engineering is developing a new product supporting
 +                    all ZBrain targets. This module is using the c code generating engine with all its exciting new
 +                    features.
 +     This NI ANSI-C-Code-Generator is a long-term NI product that will also get the full NI support in the
 +     next versions of LabVIEW<​br>​
 +
 +                    <​b>​Supported Toolkits</​b>​ <br>
 +                    The following toolkits are now supported by the c generating engine: <br>
 +                    <a
 +                      href="​http://​sine.ni.com/​nips/​cds/​view/​p/​lang/​en/​nid/​209857">​NI
 +                      LabVIEW Statechart Module
 +     </a> <br>
 +                    <a
 +                      href="​http://​sine.ni.com/​nips/​cds/​view/​p/​lang/​en/​nid/​203826">​NI
 +                      LabVIEW Control Design and Simulation Module
 +     </a> <br>
 +                    <a
 +                      href="​http://​sine.ni.com/​nips/​cds/​view/​p/​lang/​en/​nid/​209854">​NI
 +                      LabVIEW MathScript RT Module
 +     </a> <br>
 +
 +                    <​b>​Immediate Feedback on programming faults and syntax errors</​b>​ <br>
 +                    A VI, dropped on a block diagram, is automatically syntax checked with all its sub VIs. <br>
 +                    If you drop a vi that would not be supported by the c generating engine, a warning is shown. Math script
 +                    is checked likewise. <br>
 +
 +                    <​b>​Efficient and more reliable C Code</​b>​ <br>
 +                    The C Code produced by this next generation C code generating engine is more efficient and more
 +                    readable. <br>
 +
 +                    A big part of these improvements have been achieved by eliminating the parallel execution that produced
 +                    inefficient code with considerable overhead. All the code will be executed sequentially. However, Schmid
 +                    Engineering will provide solutions to execute program parts parallel in different threads. ​
 +     allowing to run code with restrictive realtime constraints (eg. Control loop) along with slower
 +                    tasks (eg. GUI). <br>
 +
 +                    <​b>​Stay in the same context</​b>​ <br>
 +                    The c generating engine has no need anymore for a microprocessor specific target specification in the
 +                    project explorer. You always write your code in the "My Computer"​ context. <br>
 +
 +                    <​b>​Existing code and projects</​b>​ <br>
 +                    It will be possible to move existing code to the new environment. The SDK VIs from the 2009 Zsystem palette
 +                    will be supported by the 2011 and future versions of LabVIEW. Accessing of the IO will be done the same
 +                    easy way as today. Both environments (2009 and 2011/12...) can coexist on the same computer.
 +                    Existing code can be maintained in 2009 while developing new projects with the latest LabVIEW
 +                    version. <br>
 +
 +                    <​b>​Targets</​b>​ <br>
 +                    In addition to the current standard targets ( 
 +     <a href="​http://​wiki.schmid-engineering.ch/​zsystem/​doku.php?​id=zmc">​ZMC</​a>​
 +                    <a href="​http://​wiki.schmid-engineering.ch/​zsystem/​doku.php?​id=z27-c1">​Z27-C1</​a>​
 +                    and <a href="​http://​wiki.schmid-engineering.ch/​zsystem/​doku.php?​id=z48-c1">​Z48-C1</​a>​
 +                    ) and customized targets, Schmid Engineering will now be able to support more processors and targets to
 +                    enhance its hardware portfolio. In the near future, Schmid Engineering will release even smaller modules
 +                    with lower costs and lower power consumption as well as modules with higher performance. <br>
 +
 +     <​b>​Upgrading from LabVIEW 8.6/2009 to LabVIEW 2011 Blackfin</​b>​ <br>
 +     Existing customers get anindividual upgrade offer based on your current serial number, LabVIEW Version ​
 +     and SSP status, valid until january 31st of 2012. This offer includes upgrading to LabVIEW 2011 and the 
 +     standard NI ANSI-C-Code-Generator that is tweaked to the ZBrain targets with its ADI Blackfin processors.
