NI ELVIS II with the Freescale Microcontroller Student Learning Kit (MCU SLK) plug-in board allows students to rapidly design and prototype electronic systems around a variety of 8-, 16- and 32-bit computing platforms from Freescale Semiconductor. NI ELVIS II, with its programmable I/O and tight integration with NI LabVIEW, makes it easy to develop complex embedded applications. With labs available for easy download and other online resources from National Instruments and Freescale, NI ELVIS II combined with the Freescale MCU SLK is an ideal platform for teaching microcontroller design.

Webcast See how NI ELVIS II simplifies embedded systems education
Learn how to program the HCS12 flash memory and use the background debugger. You will also learn about the characteristics of an LED and the use of NI ELVIS II's Digital Multimeter and Digital Reader. View Now.
Learn about the parallel input and output capabilities of your microcontroller. This lab will also illustrate basic digital I/O using a program that you develop in CodeWarrior and the NI ELVIS II Digital Writer. View Now.
Extend your knowledge of timer overflow and see how it can generate an interrupt. You will also learn about internal timer hardware and write an interrupt service routine (ISR) to handle the timer overflow interrupt. View Now.
Extend your knowledge of the timer by investigating the input capture features. Learn the hardware involved and also familiarize yourself with the Function Generator Soft Front Panel (SFP) on the NI ELVIS II. View Now.
See how easy it is to use Port AD for digital I/O! You will learn what registers are used and you will demonstrate your understanding by designing a program showing the bits in use. You will work with another lab group to see how their demonstration program works. View Now.
