In this lesson we are going to talk about data acquisition using the basic DAQmx functions.

We will first talk about how to setup channels and tasks in the Measurement and Automation Explorer(MAX). MAX, is the tool we use to configure our devices with LabVIEW. It allows us to setup a data acquisition task which combines the information necessary to run a data acquisition process. Finally we will finish off with how to use our task in LabVIEW.
