Summary of How NI Technology is Used:
This is a great book and I highly recommend it. Although I am completely biased.
By sheer luck I happened on this book when I started with LabVIEW and it has been (and still is) invaluable. It's very easy to follow with plenty of examples and very good explanations. The only bit I found it fell down on was in the explanation of what dynamic data is, which confused (and still does confuse to some extent) me as a starter. I've sampled some alternatives and even bought a few others but this is by far and away the best of the bunch that I've found.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone new to LabVIEW.
Hi, Paul. Thanks for the kind words I'm glad you like the book.
It's rather more than like it. I decided to use LabVIEW for the control and acquisition elements of some validation test rigs based on a quick survey of all the available options because it looked the best value option. The only snag was a complete lack of knowledge about LabVIEW and I found the NI manuals to be less than helpful. Because of tight time and (partly cost) constraints I didn't attend the training courses so searched for an alternative - which I found in your(and Jeffrey's) book. It pulled me out of a rather deep hole I was digging for myself. With it's help I've now gone from a complete numpty to building some quite serious applications in less than 8 months. I even turned into a LabVIEW bore in the company!
I should point out that while not a programmer per se (I use programming languages as tools) I've used machine code, FORTRAN, BASIC, C, Matlab/Simulink and quite a few others over the years. My original aim was purely to run a couple of specialised test rigs, but I'm now applying LabVIEW and the NI DAQ hardware to all sorts of problems,
I love the book and is great! Easy to follow and I have learned a lot. I have lost the accompanying CD that comes with book. Does any body know how can get that again or down load it from somwhere? Thanks.
I lost the CD as well. You can get it from:
Hope that helps.
