DIP Switches

Demonstration circuit for DIP switches: schematic diagram, recommended breadboard layout, and connection to NImyRIO MXP.
In this project, students learn to describe concepts related to dip switches and examine both SPST and rotary-style dip switches. Students interface myRIO with each dip switch and use LabVIEW to interpret the switch open-close patterns as a numerical value, binary array, and individual bit fields. Through these activities, students follow steps to demonstrate correct operation of the DIP switches, watch videos involving theory, and participate in a short activity after each video.
