I was looking forward to announcing that we have a case study live on NI's site, but also it has been nominated for an Northern Region Engineering Impact Award.

Thank you to NI for the nomination and of course Lontra who have been fantastic to work with and we look forward to continuing to help their engineers push their designs to the next level. 

You can read the case study at http://sine.ni.com/cs/app/doc/p/id/cs-16813
