In the LabVIEW Core 1 Course, you’ll get a hands-on introduction to the LabVIEW environment, interactive analysis, dataflow programming, and popular development methodologies. You’ll learn how to create data collecting, instrument control, data logging, and measurement analysis programmes in this course.
LabVIEW integrates user interfaces (termed front panel) into the development cycle. LabVIEW programs-subroutines can be called virtual instruments (VIs). A VI has three parts: a block diagram and a front panel. The connector pane is the last. The VI is represented in block diagrams by others using the last component, which we call VIs. Controls and indicators are used to build the front panel. The inputs to the VI are called controls. Indicators are outputs. They display or indicate the results of inputs to the VI. The graphical source code is contained in the back panel. It is a block diagram. The back panel contains the graphical source code. All objects that are placed on the front panel appear as terminals on the back panel. There are also structures and functions on the back panel that perform control operations and supply data to indicators. You can place the Functions palette, which contains both structures and functions, on the back panel. Nodes are collectively controls, indicators and structures. The wires connect nodes to each other. For example, two indicators and a control can be wired together to the addition function, so that the indicator shows the sum of both controls. A virtual instrument can be run either as a program with the front panel as the user interface or as a block diagram node. The connector pane defines the inputs/outputs for each node. Each VI can be tested before it is embedded into a larger program.
