Unformatted text preview: MAE 170 LabView Assignments Spring Quarter 2008 UC San Diego Department of MAE Compiled By Jordan Meyer Introduction This document is meant to accompany the LabVIEW portion of the MAE 170 class at UC San Diego. It includes all of the assignments which will be completed during the quarter. In addition, it will give some hints to make it easier to complete the assignments. This is not intended to be a complete manual for LabVIEW. If you don't come to class, you will have a very hard time understanding what is expected, and you will probably spend many frustrating hours at the computer, trying to understand how to make the programs work. By contrast, if you do attend lectures, you should be able to pick up some helpful suggestions to make your LabVIEW experience a pleasant one. Assignment 1 Calculator Your first assignment is to construct a program which will perform the functions of a simple calculator. The front panel and block diagram of the finished program are shown below. Helpful Concepts: Context Help This is a feature of labview that explains how labview functions operate. When you mouse over a function, the help for that function is displayed in the context help box. You can get context help by pressing Ctrl + H on the keyboard, or by clicking on the help menu, and selecting “Show Context Help” Here the help for the Add function is displayed. The values for x and y are wired to the function, and the sum is wired out. By convention, inputs are on the left side of functions, and outputs are on the right. Front Panel / Block Diagram All LabVIEW programs have a front panel and a block diagram (also called a back panel). When you create a new program, both are created automatically, and when you save your program, both are saved. You can switch from one to the other by pressing Ctrl + E. Block Diagram Front Panel The front panel provides an interface which allows the user to interact with the program. Controls, such as knobs, slide bars and menu boxes allow the user to supply information to the program. Indicators, including graphs and dials, supply information to the user about the state of the program....
