IAP 2007 Activity

LabVIEW Series
Andrew Watchorn Senior Academic Field Engineer, National Instruments
Enrollment limited: advance sign up required (see contact below)
Limited to 25 participants.
Participants welcome at individual sessions (series)

LabVIEW is a graphical programming language designed for scientists and engineers to
simplify the programming process and increase productivity in the areas of design,
prototype, and measurement.
Pre-registration is requested for participants (see registration link below). Students
are encouraged to bring their own laptops, for those without, demonstration laptops will
be available with preference given to those who have pre-registered.

Introduction to MultiSim
Andrew Watchorn Senior Academic Field Engineer, National Instruments
We will cover the concept of using Virtual Instrumentation as part of the circuit design process. By combining the benefits of circuit
simulation (SPICE, FPGA) with Virtual Instrumentation, design engineers are able to tie circuit behavior into the rest of the design process for implementing measurements, performing virtual design verification & manufacturing testing and facilitating control algorithm development.

Virtual Instrumentation in Biomedical Engineering
Andrew Watchorn Senior Academic Field Engineer, National Instruments
This session will talk about built-in LabVIEW functions that facilitate this effort, and illustrate this with CleveLabs' BioRadio wireless physiological signal acquisition hardware technology. Learn to use the BioRadio and CleveLabs software by completing hands on physiological signal acquisition and gain an understanding of how LabVIEW can be utilized to collect, process, display, and store the biomedical data.
Thu Jan 25, 1, 09:30am-11:00pm, 32-144

LabVIEW Basics
Andrew Watchorn Senior Academic Field Engineer, National Instruments
This workshop will introduce the LabVIEW environment, its
features, dataflow programming, and common LabVIEW architectures. This will combine
theory and practice on developing test and measurement, data acquisition, controls,
data-logging, and measurement analysis applications.
Mon Jan 29, Tue Jan 30, Wed Jan 31, 09:30am-04:30pm, 32-144

How to use VIs in Biomedical Research
Andrew Watchorn Senior Academic Field Engineer, National Instruments
Explore the use of virtual instrumentation for hypothesis verification through theoretical and experimental procedures, concept, prototyping, etc. We will
demonstrate how integrating the BioRadio hardware and LabVIEW software for virtual instrument development can increase flexibility for your biomedical engineering research lab. Topics include sensors for physiological measurements and signal conditioning.
