"LabVIEW For Everyone" Workshop at APU

LabVIEW programs are called virtual instruments, or VIs, because of their appearance and operation imitate physical instruments, such as oscilloscopes and multimeters. LabVIEW contains a comprehensive set of tools for acquiring, analyzing, displaying, and storing data, as well as tools to help developers troubleshoot codes they write.

A workshop on “LabVIEW for Everyone” was conducted by Mr. Chitturi Venkatratnam, on Saturday, January 25, 2014. 36 students and 2 staff attended the workshop. The workshop focused on four core LabVIEW concepts namely the LabVIEW Environment Basics where the students learn the most important building blocks for any LabVIEW applications, including the front panel, block diagram, palettes, controls, and indicators; Graphical Programming Basics where they see how to connect functions and work with a variety of datatypes when constructing applications; Common Tools to view a collection of important tools and common user functions that all users should be familiar with; and finally the Debugging Tools , the simple tools and techniques to understand the behavior of code and address problems or bugs. This session has highly benefited the APU students from School of Engineering (SoE) as they are able to master these skills which are useful in their academic projects.
