4Simulation Techniques

Simulation is an important tool for DAQ software development that permits you to test your program’s functionality without having any DAQ devices connected. This can be convenient for many reasons. Suppose your DAQ system will ultimately be running in a different city, where your testing would require travel. Unless you really like to travel on business, you will want to simulate the system near your home before the system is finished. In this book, running your program without any DAQ hardware (other than a LabVIEW-capable computer) will be termed soft simulation. To take it a step further, suppose you have the DAQ device you’ll be using, but you want to run your program without connections to the real signals. We will ...
