When students ask “When am I ever going to use this?,” hand them an NI myDAQ. Then watch them measure and control the world around them. They’ll start applying the classroom theory to real-life situations today.
NI myDAQ was designed for education, with plenty of input options to work with your existing or growing lab set up. It's completely USB powered, so take it anywhere your laptop can go. The device includes eight popular software-based instruments, including a digital multimeter, oscilloscope and function generator, and comes with DMM probes and an audio cable for iPod connectivity. When used with LabVIEW, myDAQ turns a computer into a suite of scientific measurement instruments capable of analyzing signal data and controlling simple processes – just like the pros do.
