Hands-On: Automated High-Performance Measurements on PXI-Based Modular Instruments

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: Maximise Measurement Speed with FPGA-Based Hardware

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: Build an Automated Test System with PXI 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: Introduction to Data Acquisition with NI LabVIEW and CompactDAQ

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: Managing and Processing Test Data with NI DIAdem

As the concept of “big data” becomes a reality, Gigabytes, or 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 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: Building a Software-Defined Radio System with NI USRP

Discover how you can use LabVIEW system design software to design, prototype and deploy a wireless communications system with the NI USRP software-defined radio (SDR) platform. Build a simple spectrum analyser, demodulate over-the-air broadcast FM radio and prototype a wireless digital communications system.

 

Hands-On: Introduction to RF Systems on PXI

RF development doesn't have to be limited to RF engineers. See how your skills in data acquisition and modular instrumentation can be directly applied to RF development, to simplify the generation and analysis of communications signals.
