W ELCOME TO LabVIEW 1 E LECTRICAL E NGINEERING 20N Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences University of California, Berkeley S IMON H ONG , H SIN -I L IU , J ONATHAN K OTKER , AND B ABAK A YAZIFAR 1 Introduction LabVIEW is a graphical programming language that uses icons instead of lines of text to create applica- tions. In contrast to text-based programming languages, where instructions determine program execution, LabVIEW uses dataflow programming , where the flow of data determines execution order. LabVIEW is the educational vehicle of EE20N this semester, and will be used to help explore and understand concepts taught simultaneously in lecture. The purpose of this lab session is to explore basic LabVIEW concepts and features, in order to provide the foundation for future lab sessions. 1.1 Lab Goals To become comfortable with the LabVIEW environment and dataflow execution. Front panels. Block diagrams. Functions and Controls palettes. To use built-in LabVIEW functions. Use LabVIEW to solve problems. Learn LabVIEW concepts. To find and use math and complex analysis functions. To work with data types. To display results. 1.2 Checkoff Points 2.
