This course will cover the basics of virtual instrumentation including use of IEEE GPIB, RS232, and Data Acquisition interfaces. The students will learn how to interface a computer to various instruments for data acquisition and instrument control. The software platform will be state-of-the-art software such as National Instrument’s LABVIEW software. The emphasis is not on the electronic aspects of the IEEE GPIB or RS232 interfaces but rather on the practical aspects of interfacing a computer to various instruments.
