Using the New LabVIEW 2012 Templates and Sample Projects

This session will provide an overview of the new features in LabVIEW 2012, focussing on new templates and sample projects that can be used as the building blocks for new applications. This seminar will dive deep on the design of some of the desktop templates, including state machines and queued message handlers.

Hands-On: Introduction to LabVIEW and Data Acquisition with NI CompactRIO

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.

Three Tips for Validating Mathematical Theory in the Real World

Many research and development areas where algorithm design is important can benefit from the close integration of both hardware and software. Discuss how LabVIEW can be used as a tool for applications such as software-defined radio, to move theoretical research into the real world with measurement instrumentation.

Developing High Performance Test and RF Applications using LabVIEW FPGA

Many RF and test applications require significant processing, which is traditionally accomplished with microprocessors. By adding user-programmable FPGAs into these systems, you can dramatically reduce test times and increase overall measurement performance. At this session, discover the first implementation of software-designed instrumentation, the NI Vector Signal Transceiver, which allows the user to customise the instrument firmware with LabVIEW FPGA.

Addressing the Hardware Challenge for Embedded Control and Monitoring Systems

The specifications for embedded monitoring and control applications vary widely; channel counts from one to thousands, loop rates from 1 Hz to greater than 1 MHz, let alone form factor and processor considerations. Learn how the FPGA-based reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture can be used to meet these differing requirements.

Hands-On: Create an Automated Test System with PXI Modular Instrumentation, NI 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.
