RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

System control software - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Fellow Engineers,

I have been using VB 6.0 for about 5 years to do relatively simple system control software, but it is time to move on. I think MS will be stopping support soon. Does anyone out there have experience with migrating to the VB.NET platform, or is it better to just go with a more structured format like with LabView?

I have hundreds of routines written in VB 6.0, and if I'm going to have to go through the pain of conversino, I only want to do it once. Your opinions, please.

I apologize for the redundancy, but I'm positing this in Software and Systems forums to get the best coverage. Cheers.

I believe that, once the initial hurdles are behind you, that you will be far more productive in LabView than in VB. Most engineers take to the "wiring up" of "instruments" model much better than the detailed command approach. Much of the work has already been done for most common equipment. If you have custom hardware, of course, that could change matters significantly - you'd have more work to do.

Good Luck!
