LabVIEW Training - Level - I: Fundamentals

 
Course Requirements:
Basic Programming skills as in C or C++, concepts of data types, data structures, loops (While, For), case structures, and basics of file I/O.
 
Course Outcomes: After attending this course you will be able to:
  •     Use LabVIEW to create data acquisition, analysis, and display applications
  •     Create user interfaces with charts, graphs and buttons
  •     Use the programming structures and data types that exist in LabVIEW
  •     Apply basic design templates and architectures for your applications
  •     Use various editing and debugging techniques
  •     Create and save your own VIs so you can use them as subVIs
  •     Read and write your data to files
 
Duration: 21 hours approx. (7 Classes of 3 Hours each).
