Building Automated Test Systems Training Courses

With NI automated test system courses, students learn to configure a wide variety of measurement, signal generation, RF, power, and switch modules in NI LabVIEW and other software to meet their specific test and measurement tasks.

Depending on their programming environment, users start with either of the following:

NI TestStand

NI TestStand users should progress from LabVIEW Core 1 or LabWindows/CVI Basics I to:

Students explore how to develop practical test applications using NI TestStand tools. This course teaches students how to customize items such as the operator interface, user privileges, reports, and process model as well as advanced features such as multithreading and multi-UUT (unit under test) testing.

Instrument Control

LabVIEW users also developing instrument control applications should progress from LabVIEW Core 1 to:

From basic instrument control and communication to the development of well-structured instrument drives, students learn the fundamentals of working with GPIB and serial port instruments.

DMMs, Switches, or High-Speed Digital Modular Instruments

LabVIEW users who are developing test or measurement systems with NI modular instrument digital multimeters (DMMs), switches, or high-speed digital modules should progress from LabVIEW Core 1 to:

These instructor-led online courses cover fundamental concepts and prepare students to set up the hardware, configure the modular instruments, and program their application using LabVIEW software.

RF and Wireless Test

For RF and wireless test applications, LabVIEW users should progress from LabVIEW Core 1 to:

First students examine the RF measurement fundaments needed to develop effective test applications with NI RF hardware and LabVIEW in the RF Measurement Fundamentals course.

Then, students progress to RF Application Development to learn the application development techniques and practices that are specific to RF test applications incorporating LabVIEW software and RF PXI instruments.
