9780190211899: Hands-On Introduction to LabVIEW for Scientists and Engineers

Hands-On Introduction to LabVIEW for Scientists and Engineers, Third Edition, explores practical programming solutions for carrying out interesting and relevant projects. Readers--who are assumed to have no prior computer programming or LabVIEW background--will begin writing meaningful programs in the first few pages.
Improvements to the Third Edition: This new edition includes the following improvements:
* All chapters are fully updated to the latest version of LabVIEW. DAQ hardware now commonly used in instructional laboratories and self-learning is highlighted.

* For easy reference, seven chapters begin with a "Basics" section that explains the fundamental operation of the LabVIEW function covered in that chapter [Chapters 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 12].

* A new first chapter offers focused introduction to the LabVIEW programming environment. Readers construct a simple program to detect whether a given integer is even or odd [Chapter 1]. 

* Coverage of LabVIEW's text-based functions is given for both the MathScript Node and Formula Node [Chapter 4 and Appendix A].

* Shift register usage is illustrated through a signal-averaging program (replacing the numerical integration and differentiation programs used in previous editions) [Chapter 7].

* State machine program architecture is now taught in the case structure chapter (replacing the numerical integration program used in previous editions). Readers construct a state-machine guessing game and a digital oscilloscope with runtime control [Chapter 8].

* A nonlinear curve fitting example is included in the text [Chapter 10].

* The fast Fourier transform chapter opens with an Express VI-based "Quick Example" section, which gives a concise introduction to the digital spectral analysis topics of leakage and windowing. High-level mathematical coverage of these topics is moved to an appendix [Chapter 11 and Appendix B].

* The proportional-integral-derivative temperature control project is now given in an appendix [Appendix C].

* About 20 new end-of-the-chapter problems appear throughout the book.
