In Detail

LabVIEW is a graphical programming development environment for problem solving, accelerated productivity, and continual innovation. It integrates all the tools that engineers and scientists need to build a wide range of applications in a short amount of time. It offers unprecedented integration with existing legacy software, IP, and hardware, while capitalizing on the latest computing technologies.

LabVIEW Graphical Programming Cookbook is a concise and fast paced guide to help you gain a comprehensive understanding of the different features and programming practices in LabVIEW. All the concepts in the book are described with the help of examples. This book also shows you how to pass data using STM, in addition to helping you understand different ways to handle errors.

You will start by learning about LabVIEW settings, and then, the different features of LabVIEW using the front panel and block diagram. For the front panel, a variety of tips on creating a user interface are provided. For the block diagram, different architectures such as master slave architecture and state machine architecture are demonstrated, along with how data is passed among different sections of the code. Finally, the book shows you different ways to work with external code in DLL format and external applications.

case will run. The following block diagram shows a case structure with enum input. These cases will be executed based on the input value. The Case 1 case is assigned as the default case. If the input does not meet the condition of Case 2 and Case 3, Case 1 will run by default. Enum is used for state machine, as it allows for self-documenting code. The value of an enum is also part of its type, so if we add a value in an enum type-def, the change will propagate to the rest of the block diagram.

data reference to modify data in place with the In Place Element Structure. To use the action engine, the user would first initialize how many timers are needed and create the corresponding number of data references that are saved in a shift register for later retrieval. After the timers are initialized, the user can use the Start Timer command to save the start time into the specified data reference. After the timer is started, the user can use the Pause Timer command to pause the timer, which

with user inputs and sends the cluster to the next state. If the user clicks on Exit, the exit event case is fired, and the state machine goes to the End state. The next state is "Create Temperature Task". It sets up an analog input channel on the thermal couple module for temperature data acquisition. The next state is "Create Acceleration Task". It sets up an analog input signal on the acceleration module for data acquisition. The next state is "Sampling Rate". It sets up the sampling rate

Until Next ms Multiple node inside the while loop and wire 500 ms to it. Create a local variable for the Trigger Boolean control and set it to false to initialize it. The stop condition is set with the Boolean default value, which is a false. The state machine and its Initialize state are shown in the following screenshot: Build the "Idle" state with an event structure, as shown in the following screenshot: Build the second event case within the Idle state, as shown in the following screenshot:
