Introducing Your Automated Measurements Board

Students are introduced to the NI Automated Measurements Board, the NI ELVIS III system, and the software tools they will use, as well as learning more about the goals and structure of this course. Students get hands-on experience through a couple simple activities, wiring connections, launching software and instruments, and taking measurements with the on-board instrumentation.

This is lab 1 of 17 in the course, Measurements and Instrumentation.

Goal and Organization of Course

The course is designed for you to experiment with all the fundamentals involved in the signal chain process. This includes conducting experiments that will help you explore properties and characteristics of:

  • Voltage
  • Current
  • Resistance
  • Amplifiers
  • Filters
  • ADC’s (Analog to Digital Converters)
  • Sensors (Temperature, Hall Effect, Light, Force and Strain)
  • Signal Acquisition and cleaning
  • Signal Chain
  • IoT Internet of Things


  • Basic proficiency using Multisim Live and LabVIEW
  • Basic proficiency using ELVIS III Instruments
  • Basic knowledge of components and their behaviors


Engineering laboratory solution for project-based learning that combines instrumentation and embedded design with a web-driven experience, delivering a greater understanding of engineering fundamentals and system design.


LabVIEW is systems engineering software for applications that require test, measurement, and control with rapid access to hardware and data insights.

Automated Measurements Board for NI ELVIS III

An application board for NI ELVIS III that provides students with a experimental platform for understanding and designing a signal chain for sensor integration.

Multisim Live

Multisim Live is an online, touch-optimized component of Multisim, so students can design and simulate their circuits anywhere, anytime, on any device.
