Course description

LabVIEW Core 3 LabVIEW Core 3 introduces you to structured practices to design, implement, document, and test LabVIEW applications. This course focuses on developing hierarchical applications that are scalable, readable, and maintainable. The processes and techniques covered in this course help reduce development time and improve application stability. By incorporating these design practices early in your development, you avoid unnecessary application redesign, increase VI reuse, and minimize maintenance costs.
Introduction to LabVIEW In this session, explore the fundamentals of graphical system design and discover how LabVIEW can benefit your applications by providing diverse real-world measurements; signal processing and analysis; advanced control; and desktop, embedded, and industrial deployment. After this session you will walk away with enough basic knowledge to feel empowered and compelled to start using LabVIEW on your own.
Prototyping Real-Time Wireless Systems with LabVIEW Comms The tutorial will cover the most important aspects of the idea-to-prototype flow in a single tool based on USRP-RIO and LabVIEW Communications SDS including floating-point simulation, floating-point to fixed-point conversion, HW/SW partitioning, performance-complexity tradeoffs, and finally verification and testing on an FPGA-based software-defined radio. At the end of the tutorial, you will be able to design, simulate, and prototype a 5 MHz LTE-based real-time OFDM link on a high performance FPGA, and transmit data over the air using the link you design on the NI USRP-RIO.
Sensors Fundamentals & Data Acquisition Learn the basics of common sensor and signal measurements including the basics of Data Acquisition. See how you can create a data acquisition system for acquiring, analyzing, viewing, and storing measurement data using NI hardware and software.
MyRIO Hands-ON Find out more about the new NI myRIO embedded device during this interactive seminar for educators and graduate students in the fields of controls, mechatronics, robotics, and embedded systems. Physically set up an NI myRIO, write an embedded program with NI LabVIEW software, and visualize the results.
Building Your Own Embedded Systems

Focus on extending your current NI LabVIEW skills into FPGA-based embedded design using NI reconfigurable I/O (RIO) hardware: An introduction to programming LabVIEW Real-Time and LabVIEW FPGA, best-practices for developing application architectures, increasing efficiency through code and IP re-use, saving time through FPGA simulation, deploying and replicating systems.

Teaching Circuits & Electronics Explore how an integrated teaching strategy for circuits and electronics gives students the ability to move seamlessly from theory to simulation to experimentation. By combining a circuit simulator with educational hardware that is based on industry-standard technology, students gain experience that solidifies their understanding of foundational circuits and electronics concepts.
Machine Vision Understand the fundamentals of machine vision, use and select the hardware components of a machine vision system, and implement machine vision tasks and inspections using LabVIEW
LabVIEW Developer Day 

This is a multi-track seminar designed to for existing certified LabVIEW users to discuss beginner to advanced LabVIEW programming concepts. This will be open for attendees who receive a separate invitation for the event.
