Digital input and output are the foundation of computer technology. They are able to communicate a True or False or 1’s and 0’s. Digital outputs are often used to indicate if a threshold has been passed or to apply power to a circuit. Digital inputs are often used to trigger the acquisition of signals. Counters provide the functionality of outputting a square wave pulse train as well as count digital edges. This module introduces digital and counter I/O concepts using NI LabVIEW software. Prior to starting this module, review the Learn LabVIEW modules to understand the fundamentals of graphical programming.
Evaluate your understanding of LabVIEW and the basics of DAQ. This exam is recommended after you complete all of the modules in the Learn LabVIEW and Learn DAQ sections. There are 26 multiple choice questions on the exam.
Assess your working knowledge of building a complete system by acquiring, processing, and displaying data with LabVIEW and a DAQ device. This exercise is recommended after you complete all of the modules in the Learn LabVIEW and Learn DAQ sections.
