Synopsis:

The course is devoted to the development of application programs based on LabVIEW programming environment. The structure and conception of lectures offers unifying outlook on the area of automatic measurement and control systems. From this reason the attention will be devoted also to the principles of communication with measuring instruments and control modules equipped by standardized interface (GPIB, RS-232, RS-485, USB, Ethernet, PXI, PCI). The aim of laboratory exercises is practical programming in LabVIEV. They will be composed from the presentations, demonstrations and examples of solution of simple tasks. Excercises finish with one individual task to verify students skills. The aim of the course is to teach how to make good application focused on modularity, scalability and maintainability. Course covers the topic of the LabVIEW Core 1 and LabVIEW Core 2 courses.
