Academic Embedded Systems Fundamentals Badge

Earn the Academic Embedded Systems Fundamentals badge.
This is a learning module that is part of the NI Badge Program. This badge holder has demonstrated basic understanding of using myRIO with LabVIEW to create an interactive project incorporating myRIO's onboard accelerometer and LEDs. Discover the power, speed, and determinism of the reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture as you build an electronic level with myRIO and LabVIEW. Form a basic understanding of how a real-time processor integrated with an FPGA along with some sensors and actuators become an embedded system. Develop a LabVIEW program that converts an accelerometer measurement into a visual representation of the rotation angle using LEDs.
