Request a FREE National Instruments Hands-On Seminar on your Campus

If your university is interested in a seminar that you cannot attend due to time or location, we can hold a seminar at your site focused on your needs. Submit your request for a customised seminar delivered at your location by one of our highly-trained field engineers. Here is an overview of some of the content we could cover at your site.

Hands-On Circuit Design Workshop: 3hr Multisim and NI ELVIS Training

Get hands-on with NI ELVIS and Multisim to see how the fully integrated tool chain can be used to teach circuit design, prototyping and troubleshooting skills. First, use NI Multisim to help you quickly and efficiently design and simulate a circuit, before visualising the physical layout in a 3D environment. Next, prototype and test the circuit using NI ELVIS and explore using the integrated software-defined instruments to compare the simulation to real world measurements.

In this workshop you will:

• Rapidly build a circuit schematic using NI Multisim and simulate this using the built in SPICE tools

• See how this circuit design can be easily reproduced on a breadboard in the real world using NI ELVIS

• Compare the simulated results to real measurements taken with quality instruments integrated into the NI ELVIS platform

• Get advice from experienced NI engineers on the challenges you face integrating hands-on elements to circuit design education

Hands-On Sound and Vibration Workshop: 1hr

This complementary workshop pairs well with the Introductory LabVIEW Workshops and explores how the LabVIEW Sound and Vibration Toolkit aids the development of dynamic signal acquisition (DSA) applications, including acoustic measurements, machine condition monitoring and structural health monitoring.

In this workshop you will:

• Get hands-on with LabVIEW and DSA hardware to understand how to acquire and analyse dynamic waveform data in both time and order domains

• Explore the express and low level analysis functions built into the LabVIEW Sound and Vibration Toolkit

• Get advice from experienced NI engineers on the challenges you face integrating hands-on elements to circuit design education

Hands-On Data Management Workshop: 3hr

Gigabytes, even Terabytes, of data are becoming commonplace in many research applications. Explore how NI DIAdem and the TDM file format harness new data storage technologies to enable you to effectively save, document, search and use these data sets.

In this workshop you will:

• Explore techniques using NI DIAdem for DataFinding with automated reporting and data mining with interactive reporting

• Create automated analysis and reporting within NI DIAdem

• Understand how to create custom plug-ins to access any data type

• Learn how to synchronize data sets for intuitive display, eg. video and sensor data

Hands-On Measurements and NI ELVIS Workshop: 1hr

Get first-hand experience with the NI ELVIS educational design and prototyping platform, based on NI LabVIEW. Learn how it can be used to teach concepts in measurement and instrumentation and see how students can easily build their own instrumentation to test circuits and other devices.

In this workshop you will:

• Get hands-on in the LabVIEW environment to understand the principles of graphical dataflow programming

• Explore the built in NI ELVISmx instruments and create your own custom instruments in the LabVIEW environment

• Get advice from experienced NI engineers on the challenges you face integrating real measurements into engineering education

Hands-On Textual Maths and LabVIEW Workshop: 1hr

This hands-on training session will introduce how to work with your .m file scripts in LabVIEW. Using the MathScript technology built into the LabVIEW platform, you are able to rapidly prototype and develop algorithms with interactive user interfaces and deploy them directly onto real-time targets. We will also cover integration of your models created using The MathWorks, Inc. Simulink® software with high performance flexible I/O for evaluation of control algorithms. The native multithreaded simulation algorithms in LabVIEW help you take advantage of multicore platforms running on real-time operating systems for faster execution. * Simulink® is a registered trademark of The MathWorks, Inc.

In this workshop you will:

• Build a LabVIEW application that incorporates multiple models of computation (G code, Math Script) onto a single LabVIEW block diagram

• Learn how to simulates the behaviour of a real-world systems in LabVIEW through the integration of your models created using The MathWorks, Inc. Simulink® software

• Explore how the LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit can be used to write models natively in the LabVIEW environment
