The National Instruments Research and Development Centre in Cluj-Napoca started its activity in Romania in 2005, under the leadership of Branch Manager Horia Hedesiu. The Centre contributes to the development of products and the supply of innovative technologies in the engineering and research domains at global level.
At global level, National Instruments has similar centres in the US, Germany, India, China, Canada, Hungary, Denmark and Malaysia.
“We have elements in common with the other software companies in Cluj-Napoca, but there are also things that set us apart, such as the work environment and – more than that – the very interesting products that we are developing, products such as compilers, the LabVIEW graphic environment for software development, dedicated systems for network communications or real-time operating systems,” Horia Hedesu, Director of the National Instruments Research and Development Centre in Cluj-Napoca, stated.
Throughout the last 10 years the National Instruments Centre in Romania has contributed to the development of numerous products, the company registering in the last quarter of 2014 significant growth in the revenues generated by platforms such as LabVIEW, PXI, RF and CompactRIO.
