Signals and Systems Labs for Emona SIGEx Add-on Board

The complete lab manual is designed to teach signals and systems concepts with LabVIEW graphical programming and the NI ELVIS platform, including spectrum analysis, time domain analysis, sampling and aliasing, analog-digital conversion, and discrete-time filters. The manual enables students to patch together continuous time and discrete-time systems in real hardware for circuit theory, digital signal processing and signals and system courses. It can be used to teach topics such as convolution, integration, and perform time domain analysis, sampling and aliasing as well as explore poles and zeros with Infinite impulse response (IIR) systems. The EMONA SIGEx board and comprehensive Lab Manual closely follow the typical curriculum encountered by engineering students and is based on leading textbooks on this topic. Access to the complete volume of the Emona SIGEx add-on board lab manual is provided upon purchase of the product.

  • Students develop a comprehensive understanding of abstract signals and systems principles
  • Students utilize a suite of LabVIEW VIs to generate, view, and record signals from the SIGEx add-on board
  • Students use NI ELVIS technology to experiment with scaled models of real world systems, allowing students to get a tangible feel for complex systems they will encounter in commercial environnments later on
