For 30 years, National Instruments has been a technology pioneer and leader in virtual instrumentation — a revolutionary concept that has changed the way engineers and scientists in industry, government and academia approach measurement and automation. Leveraging PCs and commercial technologies, virtual instrumentation increases productivity and lowers costs for test, control and design applications through easy-to-integrate software, such as NI LabVIEW, and modular measurement and control hardware for PXI, PCI, PCI Express, USB and Ethernet. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, NI has more than 3,800 employees and direct operations in nearly 40 countries. For the past seven years, FORTUNE magazine has named NI one of the 100 best companies to work for in America.

In addition to providing an NI Application Engineer advisor to each team for product support and expertise through all phases of the competition, NI will also donate more than $750,000 in software, hardware, and training products to participating teams.

Through its support of the EcoCAR competition, NI continues its commitment to education by providing tomorrow's engineering leaders with tools to be successful today and in the future.
