EEE317: myDAQ Measurements

Get a basic introduction to measuring and analyzing signals with myDAQ, a portable data acquisition device from National Instruments.

In this class, you will learn how to use a powerful portable device that will allow you to measure and analyze the world around you. The NI myDAQ is an entire electronics lab in a box, with 8 unique measurement instruments sized to fit into your pocket!

You will learn how to:
  • Set up and install a myDAQ
  • Take voltage, resistance and current measurements with the multimeter
  • Generate signals with the function generator and arbitrary waveform generator
  • Measure waveforms with the oscilloscope
  • Use digital inputs and outputs
  • Perform spectrum analysis with the dynamic signal analyzer

EEE318: LabVIEW Experiments

Learn how to use LabVIEW graphical programming to create virtual instruments that measure, analyze, control and log data from real world signals and sensors.

In this class, you will learn how to use LabVIEW, a graphical programming language, to automate the measurements covered in the introduction to National Instruments myDAQ Measurements class, enabling you to create systems that interact with the real world based on measurements from the various sensors. You will learn how to implement the logic for a simple thermostat control system in LabVIEW using the input and output capabilities of the NI myDAQ.

You will learn how to:
  • Create user interfaces with controls and indicators
  • Use graphical programming structures
  • Interface digital and analog input and output signals from a myDAQ
  • Build a custom thermostat through a series of experiments

EEE100: Soldering and Basic Electronics

Learn how to use solder and a soldering iron to make small stick figures, as well as how to solder electronic "through-hole" components for electronic printed circuit board assembly (PCBs).

In this class, you will learn basic solder and flux types, safe soldering practices, and soldering iron maintenance. You will learn to de-solder using various techniques, including a "solder sucker" tool or solder braid. In addition, you will build an LED Blinkatron 2000 - it's a simple soldering project that works!

All parts are included. Add the potentiometer to change the blink speed.

This is a fun first class for kids and adults!

EEE104: Electronics Instruments and Measurement

Understand and test your electronics with state of the art measurement equipment available at TechShop.

In this class, you will learn how to competently use a digital oscilloscope to probe and troubleshoot circuits. You will learn how to use high resolution digital multimeters to measure things like AC and DC voltages and currents, resistance, capacitance and other critical circuit parameters. You will also learn how to set up and use DC power supplies with current limiting capability. Finally, you will use an advanced function generator and learn how to generate sine waves, square waves at varying frequencies and voltages.

Master these tools and make all of your electronics projects work!
