Measurement Software Analysis - Frequency and Min/Max-ima

In this lab, students will explore, through hands-on experience, the concept and properties of Software Analysis of acquired signals. Students will implement FFT analysis to interpret the frequency domain of a signal, peak/valley analysis to detect local minima and maxima, and implement file saving.

This is lab 11 of 17 in the course, Measurements and Instrumentation.


After completing this lab, students will be able to:
  1. Use the analog output to create a signal of overlapping sine waves and the anlog input to read it back into the system
  2. Use FFT function to measure the Power Spectrum of the sine wave signal
  3. Use the Peak Analyser to detect peaks and valleys of the sine wave signal


  • 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.

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.


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