- Students learn how NI ELVIS, Multsim, and LabVIEW can be utilized to analyze electrical systems
- Students develop a small system approach to solving more advanced topics such as RF communications, magnetic field detection, and free space optical communicatoin.
- Students learn an iterative design approach to take an idea from paper to reality using National Instrument's tools

INCLUDED COURSE LABS
Introduction to NI ELVIS II, NI Multisim, and NI LabVIEW
workstation to measure electronic component properties. Then students can
build circuits on the protoboard and later analyze them with the NI ELVIS II
suite of SFP instruments. This lab also shows how students can use Multisim to
design and simulate a circuit before building the circuit on the NI ELVIS II
workstation and controlling it with a LabVIEW program.
AC Circuit Tools
Magnetic Field Sensors
Free Space Optical Communication
RF Wireless Communication
free space IR link, students build a tachometer to measure the speed of the motor. By combining the motor and tachometer with a LabVIEW program, students can incorporate computer automation in the system.
prototype circuit using real TTL ICs on the NI ELVIS II protoboard. Also
students use NI ELVIS II SFPs to test their designs within a Multisim environment
and, with a click of the mouse, students use the same test instruments to test the real
