MICAS-X is LabVIEW software for rapid development of data acquisition and control systems. It is readily extensible and configurable to a wide variety of requirements. MICAS-X contains extensive functionality needed by most data acquisition and control systems, such as sequencing, alarming, error logging, file writing, and more. Support for NI and MCC hardware and NI CompactRIO embedded platforms is built-in. MICAS-X is highly modular, allowing it to be configured with only those plug-ins that are needed. Most importantly, the modular architecture simplifies the integration of custom LabVIEW plug-ins for the specific needs of each system. MICAS-X has been extensively used for atmospheric instrumentation, but can be applied to a wide range of requirements, especially in science and engineering R&D.
