These hands-on experiments demonstrate the wide-ranging possibilities of using NI MyDAQ, a portable data acquisition system that connects to a computer or laptop with a USB cable, providing a portal into the analog or digital world of measurement and control.

The experiments cover a wide range of topics including analog and digital circuits, sensors and signal processing of audio sound tracks. While entertaining, the experiments also reveal the many useful features of myDAQ and NI ELVISmx software VIs and instruments. Once users have tried these experiments, they may find themselves tinkering and creating their own, unique ways to use myDAQ.
