DEVELOPMENT GUIDELINES

The LabVIEW Development Guidelines describe many of the issues that arise when developing large applications. The guidelines are based on the advice of LabVIEW developers and provide a basic survey of software engineering techniques you might find useful when developing your own projects.

This manual also includes a discussion of style for creating VIs. Developers who have used LabVIEW and are comfortable in the LabVIEW environment can use the LabVIEW Development Guidelines to maintain a consistent style in their projects.

LABVIEW USER MANUAL

This manual describes the LabVIEW graphical programming environment and techniques for building applications in LabVIEW, such as test and measurement, data acquisition, instrument control, datalogging, measurement analysis, and report generation applications.

LABVIEW COURSES

Labview Fundamentals

This manual describes Labview programming concepts, techniques, features, VIs and function you can use to create test and measurement, data acquisition, instrument control, datalogging, measurement analysis and report generation application.l

LabView_Fundamentals.pdf

Basic Course I

Use this manual to learn about LabVIEW programming concepts, techniques, features, VIs, and functions you can use to create test and measurement, data acquisition, instrument control, datalogging, measurement analysis, and report generation applications. This course manual assumes that you are familiar with Windows and that you have experience writing algorithms in the form of flowcharts or block diagrams. The course manual is divided into lessons, each covering a topic or a set of topics. Each lesson consists of the following:

  • An introduction that describes the purpose of the lesson and what you will learn
  • A description of the topics in the lesson
  • A set of exercises to reinforce those topics
Some lessons include optional and challenge exercise sections or a set of additional exercises to complete if time permits.

  • A summary that outlines importantconcepts and skills taught in the lesson Several exercises in this manual use one of the following National Instruments hardware products:
  • A plug-in multifunction data acquisition (DAQ) device connected to a DAQ Signal Accessory containing a temperature sensor, function generator, and LEDs
  • A GPIB interface connected to an NI Instrument Simulator

If you do not have this hardware, you still can complete the exercises. Alternate instructions are provided for completing the exercises without hardware. Exercises that explicitly require hardware are indicated with an icon, shown at left. You also can substitute other hardware for those previously mentioned. For example, you can use a GPIB instrument in place of the NI Instrument Simulator, or another National Instruments DAQ device connected to a signal source, such as a function generator.

Basic course II

Use this manual to learn aboutLabVIEW programming concepts, techniques, features, VIs, and functions you can use to create test and measurement, data acquisition, instrument control, datalogging, measurement analysis, and report generation applications.

This course manual assumes that you are familiar with Windows, Macintosh, or UNIX; that you have experience writing algorithms in the form of flowcharts orblock diagrams; and that you have taken the LabVIEW Basics I or have equivalent experience.

The course manual isdivided into lessons, each covering a topic or a set of topics. Each lesson consists of the following:

  • An introduction that describes the purpose of the lesson and what you will learn
  • A description of the topics in the lesson
  • A set of exercises to reinforce those topics
  • A set of additional exercises to complete if time permits
  • A summary that outlines important concepts and skills taught in the lesson

LABVIEW REALTIME COURSES

Getting started

This document provides exercises to teach you how to develop a real-time project and VIs from setting up RT targets to building, debugging, and deploying real-time applications. This document provides references to the LabVIEW Helpand other Real-Time Module documents for more information as you create the real-time application.

Labview_RealTime_Module_-_getting_started_.pdf

LABVIEW Real-Time I

The LabVIEW Real-Time 1 course teaches you to use LabVIEW Real-Time to develop a deterministic and reliable application. Most LabVIEW applications run on a general-purpose operating system (OS) like Windows, Linux, Solaris, or Mac OS. Some applications require deterministic real-time performance that general-purpose operating systems cannot guarantee. The LabVIEW Real-Time Module extends the capabilities of LabVIEW to address the need for deterministic real-time performance.

This course assumes you have a level of experience with LabVIEW equivalent to completing the material in the LabVIEW Core 1 course. In addition, you should be familiar withthe Windows operating system and computer components such as the mouse, keyboard, connection ports and plug-in slots, and have experience writing algorithms in the form of flowcharts or block diagrams. The course and exercise manuals are divided into lessons, described as follows.

In the course manual, each lesson consists of the following:

  • An introduction that describes the purpose of the lesson and what you will learn
  • A description of the topics in the lesson
  • A summary quiz that tests and reinforces important concepts and skills taught in the lesson
In the exercise manual, each lesson consists of the following:

  • A set of exercises to reinforce topics
  • (Optional) Self-study and challengeexercise sections or additional exercises

TEMPLATES

Overview

LabVIEW 2013 continues to expand the in-product templates and sample projects, which provide recommended starting points designed to ensure the quality and scalability of a system. All of the

templates and sample projects are open-source and include extensive documentation designed to clearly indicate how the code works and the best practices for adding or modifying functionality. In

addition to demonstrating recommended architectures, these projects also illustrate best practices for documenting and organizing code.

You can create a new LabVIEW project from an existing template or sample project by selecting “Create Project” from the Getting Started window. The list of available options depends on the

software modules and drivers that you have installed. This document lists the templates and sample projects that National Instruments provides and supports.

State Machines

The concept of “State Machines” as they pertain to LabVIEW based application development. Focus will be on design considerations and merits for selecting various State Machines models.

Topics

  • Single loop
  • Multiple Loops (Asynchronous)
  • Supporting techniques
  • Queue
  • Functional Globals
  • Multi-threading and performance (comments)
Architecture State_Machine_Architectures.pdf
State Machine and Queue State_Machines_Queue_based_at_end_.pdf

Functional Global Variables

In NI LabVIEW software, the order of execution is controlled by the flow of data (data flow) though wires rather than the sequential order of commands. This allows you to create a block diagram with simultaneous (parallel) operations. When you have parallel loop structures, you cannot use wires to communicate data between the two loops because data flow prevents parallel operation. To overcome this, you must use variables. With variables, you can circumvent normal data flow by passing data from one place to another without connecting the two places with a wire. In LabVIEW, variables take many forms.
