Test-drive PC-based data acquisition systems and learn how to use graphical programming techniques to create modular and flexible applications. Measure temperature with a thermocouple and log the data to a file. NI data acquisition and signal conditioning products offer highly accurate measurements, combined with NI LabVIEW to give you the power to easily acquire, analyse and present your data in minutes.

Hands-On: Inside the LabVIEW 2012 Core Templates

Spend time with the new templates and sample projects in LabVIEW 2012 with technical experts in the room who can answer questions.

Hands-On: Software Engineering

As the complexity of software applications rise and team sizes grow, various software engineering process models have evolved to encourage efficient development and ensure quality, timeline compliance and meet end-user expectations. Use software engineering tools complementary to LabVIEW to implement source code control, code inspection and advanced debugging.

Hands-On: Object-Oriented Design Patterns

See how to map the most important requirements of your application to established design patterns to maximise the scalability and reusability of your LabVIEW code. This session will demonstrate various implementations of state machines and producer consumer loops to solve common problems such as plug-in frameworks and hardware abstraction layers.

Hands-On: Data Management with DIAdem

Gigabytes, even Terabytes, of data are becoming commonplace in many test and measurement 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.

Hands-On: Introduction to LabVIEW Real-Time with CompactRIO

Explore real-time technologies and develop a reliable and deterministic application using the LabVIEW Real-Time Module in the new LabVIEW 2011 environment. See how easy it is to implement real-time applications using target hardware such as CompactRIO.

Hands-On: Embedded Data Logging with CompactRIO

Learn how to use CompactRIO and LabVIEW software to design reconfigurable embedded data loggers. Find out how to create stand-alone and rugged data logging solutions for a variety of applications such as in-vehicle data logging, environmental monitoring, structural health monitoring and machine condition monitoring.

Hands-On: FPGA Programming with CompactRIO and LabVIEW

Create applications using the power, flexibility and reliability of FPGAs. Learn how LabVIEW can abstract the complexity of programming FPGAs and gain hands-on experience using an NI CompactRIO system.

Hands-On: Machine Vision with the NI Smart Camera

Learn how to acquire and process images and build complete applications using NI vision hardware, including NI Smart Cameras.

Hands-On: Introduction to LabVIEW for Robotics

Learn how to use LabVIEW graphical programming and the NI Single-Board RIO embedded control system to program a mobile robot.

Hands-On: Introduction to using PXI Modular Instruments with LabVIEW

Get hands-on with PXI and modular instrumentation measurement hardware, such as scopes, DMMs, arbitrary function generators and switches. Perform tests on elements of electronic DUTs (devices under test) such as LED testing and lowpass filter characterisation. See how the combination of LabVIEW and modular instruments can be used to implement a virtual instrumentation approach to automated test, enabling automated measurements, data logging for post processing and inline analysis at run-time.

Hands-On: NI FlexRIO and LabVIEW FPGA

Learn how to build an NI FlexRIO system from scratch. Understand how to take advantage of the flexible FPGA-based modular architecture to meet custom hardware requirements and perform inline processing.

Hands-On: Introduction to NI TestStand

Learn how to develop automated test and validation systems faster with NI TestStand. In this session, you will get the opportunity to sequence, schedule and debug test modules with the TestStand sequence editor, before running a complete test and analysing the results.

Hands-On: Create an Automated Test System with PXI Modular Instrumentation, LabVIEW and NI TestStand

Learn how to develop an automated test system from start to finish. Explore how to use NI TestStand test management software to quickly add sequencing, flow control, multithreading and reporting to your LabVIEW measurements and tests. See how to program NI modular instruments in PXI systems to perform functional tests on multiple devices to develop a high-throughput parallel test system.

Hands-On: Algorithm Engineering with Textual Maths in LabVIEW

This hands-on 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.

Hands-On: Design and Implement Control Algorithms using LabVIEW

In just 1 hour, design and implement a functioning control system prototype using a single development environment. Understand how LabVIEW closely integrates the software and hardware system components, abstracting complexity away from the design process and enabling the rapid development of complex applications.

Hands-On: Introduction to Software Defined Radio with NI USRP

NI USRP radios and LabVIEW software provide a powerful, flexible platform for rapidly prototyping wireless RF and communications systems. Get hands-on and prototype a complete wireless communication system using LabVIEW to combine signal processing algorithms that operate on live RF signals streaming to and from the NI USRP hardware.
