The final project is going on in the school UPV/EHU, faculty for engineering. UPV/EHU is a
school in Bilbao (Bilbo), the capitol of the Basque country in Spain.
The goal in a period of 13 weeks is to learn to work with labview and data acquisition. Labview is a
program to simulate electronical instruments by making virtual instruments. With these VI's it's
possible to make a simulation for about every electronic instrument that exists, even instruments
that don't exist. Another goal is to simulate an oscilloscope with 2 channels, 4 channels and
extensions on it and possibly make a program for heat measurement or other exercises, depending
on the time we have.
It's possible for making the simulations with real signals through data acquisition or the DAQ
assistant. This assistant makes it possible for reading real signals outside of the computer and
transfers them to your computer through a usb-port.
With this knowledge it is possible for making a logging function for different types of sensors.
It could be a great advantage in the future for having the knowledge of how to work with labview.
