Advanced LabVIEW Labs provides a structured introduction to LabVIEW-based laboratory skills. The book can be used as a stand-alone tutorial or as a college-level instructional lab text. The reader learns the LabVIEW programming language while writing meaningful programs that explore useful data analysis techniques (numerical integration and differentiation, least-squares curve-fitting, Fast Fourier Transform) and the mechanics of computer-based experimentation using National Instruments DAQ and GPIB boards. During the course of the book, the reader constructs and investigates the proper usage of several computer-based instruments including a digitizing oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer and PID temperature control system as well as learns to control an instrument through the General Purpose Interface Bus.

It includes a longitudinal perspective of past mistakes, current trends and future opportunities, and is a must-have for beginners in the field as well as qualified professionals exploring the full potential of human interactions"--Provided by publisher.
Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are increasingly becoming the platform of choice to implement DSP algorithms. This book is designed to allow DSP students or DSP engineers to achieve FPGA implementation of DSP algorithms in a one-semester DSP laboratory course or in a short design cycle time based on the LabVIEW FPGA Module. Features: - The first DSP laboratory book that uses the FPGA platform instead of the DSP platform for implementation of DSP algorithms - Incorporating introductions to LabVIEW and VHDL - Lab experiments covering FPGA implementation of basic DSP topics including convolution, digital filtering, fixed-point data representation, adaptive filtering, frequency domain processing - Hardware FPGA implementation applications including wavelet transform, software-defined radio, and MP3 player - Website providing downloadable LabVIEW FPGA codes
The graphical nature of LabVIEW makes it ideal for test and measurement applications and its use brings significant improvements in productivity over conventional programming languages. However, comprehensive treatments of the more advanced topics have been scattered and difficult to find-until now. LabVIEW Advanced Programming Techniques offers in-depth coverage of the subjects that move you to the next level of programming-the level that allows full exploitation of LabVIEW's power and utility. These topics include: Active X: Gain the background needed to use Active X in your LabVIEW applications. Object-Oriented Technologies: Get a clear description of object analysis and see examples of how it can apply to LabVIEW applications. Application structure: Discover a three-tiered architecture that results in robust, flexible, and easy to maintain code. State machines: Get extensive coverage of several types of state machines-arguably the most useful programming tool available. Exception handling: Learn how to detect, process, and resolve exceptions in your code. Instrument drivers: See the value drivers bring to code readability and maintenance -Learn the techniques for constructing reusable drivers. Multi-threading: Learn how to look at a LabVIEW code diagram to determine how many threads your application can use, then optimize the performance of the application.

LabVIEW (Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Engineering Workbench) developed by National Instruments is a graphical programming environment. Its ease of use allows engineers and students to streamline the creation of code visually, leaving time traditionally spent on debugging for true comprehension of DSP. This book is perfect for practicing engineers, as well as hardware and software technical managers who are familiar with DSP and are involved in system-level design. With this text, authors Kehtarnavaz and Kim have also provided a valuable resource for students in conventional engineering courses. The integrated lab exercises create an interactive experience which supports development of the hands-on skills essential for learning to navigate the LabVIEW program. Digital Signal Processing System-Level Design Using LabVIEW is a comprehensive tool that will greatly accelerate the DSP learning process. Its thorough examination of LabVIEW leaves no question unanswered. LabVIEW is the program that will demystify DSP and this is the book that will show you how to master it. * A graphical programming approach (LabVIEW) to DSP system-level design * DSP implementation of appropriate components of a LabVIEW designed system * Providing system-level, hands-on experiments for DSP lab or project courses
This interactive, hands-on guide to AC/DC circuits, machines, devices, and power electronics uses custom-written LabVIEW Virtual Instruments to illuminate every key concept using simulation and animation.
