Courses and Descriptions

DCOM-1009Data Acquisition

This course is designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary to design a data acquisition system and create a virtual instrument (VI) by Labview programming. Students learn how to collect data from a variety of sensors, through serial port of RS232, a portable data acquisition unit NI6008 and FPGA embedded real time cRIO system. Students will learn to estimate the analog input range of sensors and determine the sampling rate and accuracy of the DAQ system. Students will also learn signal conditioning and signal processing for strain gauges and temperature sensor and Fast Fourier transform (FFT) for spectrum analysis for accelerometers. Students will learn data manipulation by using strings, arrays, clusters, charts and file I/O. Students will gain expertise in controlling of the data flow by applying timed while/for loops, case structures and stacked sequence structures. SubVI creation will be introduced in hierarchy design.  Editing and debugging tools will be employed in the lab projects. Data stream through TCP/IP protocol will be practiced. Each unit consists of lab exercises, which must be demonstrated and reported.
