Fundamentals of LabVIEW for Graphical Programming

Course/Workshop Title: Fundamentals of LabVIEW for Graphical Programming
Course/Workshop Description In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of virtual instrumentation and graphical programming using LabVIEW from National Instruments. With virtual instrumentation, engineers use graphical programming software to create user-defined solutions that meet their specific needs, which is a great alternative to proprietary, fixed-functionality traditional instruments. After completing the course, participants will have acquired a basic knowledge of the LabVIEW programming language.

National Instruments LabVIEW is a highly productive development environment for creating custom applications that interact with real-world data or signals in fields such as science and engineering. It is an industry-leading software tool for designing test, measurement, and control systems. The LabVIEW platform provides specific tools and models to meet specific application challenges, ranging from designing signal processing algorithms to making voltage measurements, and can target any number of platforms from the desktop to embedded devices – with an intuitive, powerful graphical programming platform.
