In this chapter, we’ll get to the heart of what LabVIEW is often commissioned to do: data acquisition. You’ll become familiar with some of the VIs on the Measurement I/O>> DAQmx—Data Acquisition palette. Analog input and output, digital input and output, and counter input and output are covered. We’ll go through the basic steps necessary to get you started with some data acquisition in LabVIEW, and point you in the right direction to do your own more advanced DAQ and instrument control programs.<feature><title>Goals</title>
