Recommended Equipment and Supplies
Although, we have made an effort to keep the exercises generic enough to enable the Lab book to support the use of a wide variety of equipment.
Recommended virtual-instrumentation alternative to desktop equipment: NI ELVIS II+ Laboratory Platform
- NI ELVIS Tips and Tricks document
- NI ELVIS virtual instrumentation video demonstration
- NOTE - If you short the 5V power supply on the ELVIS (either momentarily by touching wires or leads by mistake, or because your circuit is wired wrong), an internal circuit breaker will activate to disconnect the 5V power supply (with the 5V indicator LED turning off). If this happens, just find and remove the short and then cycle the power on the ELVIS unit.
