This book provides a practical and accessible understanding of the fundamental principles of virtual instrumentation. It explains how to acquire, analyze and present data using LabVIEW (Laboratory Virtual Instrument Engineering Workbench) as the application development environment. The book introduces the students to the graphical system design model and its different phases of functionality such as design, prototyping and deployment. It explains the basic concepts of graphical programming and highlights the features and techniques used in LabVIEW to create Virtual Instruments (VIs). Using the technique of modular programming, the book teaches how to make a VI as a subVI. Arrays, clusters, structures and strings in LabVIEW are covered in detail. The book also includes coverage of emerging graphical system design technologies for real-world applications. In addition, extensive discussions on data acquisition, image acquisition, motion control and LabVIEW tools are presented. This book is designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students of instrumentation and control engineering, electronics and instrumentation engineering, electrical and electronics engineering, electronics and communication engineering, and computer science and engineering. It will be also useful to engineering students of other disciplines where courses in virtual instrumentation are offered. Key Features : Builds the concept of virtual instrumentation by using clear-cut programming elements. Includes a summary that outlines important learning points and skills taught in the chapter. Offers a number of solved problems to help students gain hands-on experience of problem solving. Provides several chapter-end questions and problems to assist students in reinforcing their knowledge.
Virtual Instrumentation Using LabVIEW is the first book on the subject in India. Based on the vast experience of the authors in both teaching and using Virtual Instrumentation techniques, it is designed to facilitate the adoption of this new paradigm. The.

Hands-on problems throughout the book demonstrate immediate practical uses Examples cover a variety of medical specialties Detailed design instructions give the inside view of LabVIEW and BioBench applications Both students and practicing professionals will appreciate the practical applications offered for modeling fundamental physiology, advanced systems analysis, medical device development and testing, and even hospital management and clinical engineering scenarios.
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
