Engineering Lab Stations


NI engineering lab stations deliver more than instrumentation: they provide a complete solution to teaching electronic, mechatronic, and RF systems. NI strives to be able to provide every student the ability to discover engineering by experimentation.


NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS)

Focus on the Concepts, Not the Tools

"The NI ELVIS platform has solved many lab problems. It gives the students all tools needed to design and test electronic circuits… By having all tools readily at hand, the focus of the courses can be directed towards the content." —Frank Sierens, University College Ghent, Department of Technology

One Lab Station, 20 Courses and Counting

The NI ELVIS not only provides the instrumentation needed for the engineering lab but also course-specific material to seamlessly fit into 20 different courses. The wide selection of topboards and courseware make the NI ELVIS key for today’s engineering laboratory.

NI ELVIS Around the World

"Electronics used to seem so cryptic to me, but using NI tools in the new labs made everything so much more understandable. It's given me the confidence to experiment with electric circuits...." —Joshua Elijah, student, The University of Manchester

Throughout comprehension of electronic theory requires students to understand how each component reacts under different circumstances. Simulation plays a big role in achieving this level of comprehension. Give students the tools they need to design, simulate, then experiment with their circuitry using Multisim.
