Data Acquisition and Signal Conditioning
Using LabVIEW, data acquisition devices, and signal conditioning hardware, the Data Acquisition and Signal Conditioning course teaches you the fundamentals of PC-based data acquisition and signal conditioning. During the course, you get hands-on experience installing and configuring data acquisition hardware and you learn to use data acquisition software functions to build your application. Although LabVIEW is the application software used during the class, non-LabVIEW users using the NI-DAQmx API will also benefit by learning about analogue input, triggering, analogue output, digital I/O, counters, signal conditioning, and synchronization.

Duration Two (2) Days


  • Developers using LabVIEW with DAQ and/or signal  conditioning hardware to create data acquisition and control applications
  • Developers using the NI-DAQmx API with text-based languages (LabWindows/CVI, C, Visual Basic, etc.) to create DAQ applications
  • Users new to PC-based data acquisition and signal conditioning Prerequisites
  • LabVIEW Core 1

 NI Products Used During the Course

  • LabVIEW Professional Development System
  • NI-DAQmx
  • NI multifunction I/O data acquisition device
  • NI BNC-2120 terminal block
  • NI CompactDAQ device

After attending this course, you will be able to:

  • Develop integrated, high-performance data acquisition systems that produce accurate measurements
  • Acquire data from sensors, such as thermocouples and strain gages, using NI DAQ hardware
  • Apply advanced understanding of LabVIEW DAQ VIs and the NI-DAQmx API to create applications
  • Eliminate measurement errors due to aliasing and incorrect signal grounding
