Nimbus Driver Studio is a complete set of development tools for building fully compliant, commercial-quality IVI.NET, IVI-COM, and IVI-C instrument drivers. The Nimbus suite includes code generation tools, auto-documenting facilities, driver testing utilities, built-in installer generation and a host of other productivity tools. Nimbus fully integrates with Visual Studio to provide end-to-end tool support during driver implementation, with features such as automatic code round-tripping.
Help File Generation
Create complete help file documentation for all elements in your driver and integrate directly with Visual Studio. The Nimbus Driver Designer hosts the same HTML editor you use in Visual Studio for other projects, and allows you to author content that is as rich or as simple as you please. Customizable help templates allow the look, feel, and content of the driver help files to be completely controlled by the driver developer.
Generate a fully IVI-compliant driver installer with only a few clicks. Nimbus generates WiX source code to facilitate customizing the generated installer. Nimbus even supplies a visual designer for the installer that manages all of the WiX source code manipulations for you.
Unit Test Generation
Maintain a complete suite of C# unit tests that exercises every method and property in the driver. As you add, remove, and edit elements of your driver, Nimbus automatically creates and updates unit tests that integrate directly with the Visual Studio unit testing framework so that the test-debug-edit cycle can be performed seamlessly.
