The development environment LabVIEW is often difficult to understand, especially for beginners, the numerous operating and display elements quickly overwhelm. To make it easier for beginners to get started, the third, updated edition of the specialist book "LabVIEW course: basics, tasks, solutions" offers the basic properties and functions of LabVIEW, combined with many exercise options.
What is LabVIEW?
LabVIEW is a development environment that can be used to create programs for measurement, control and regulation applications. The graphic programming language G, which was developed to map technical processes, is used for this. It differs from a text-oriented language in that function blocks are shown which - when connected accordingly - map the data flow of a program.
An essential feature of LabVIEWis the possibility of reading physical signals into the program, processing them and displaying them visually. This means that a LabVIEW program can not only replace a measuring device, but also offers the user the opportunity to design his own measuring device tailored to the measuring task. A LabVIEW program is therefore called VI - Virtual Instrument.

Basic functions linked to exercises
The textbook wants to deal with the most important basics for the development environment. Each chapter provides an overview of an important function that can be deepened and practiced afterwards in coordinated exercises. For more advanced users, the book in the theory section offers an orderly overview of the properties and functions of LabVIEW.
The selected exercises should cover the broadest possible range of different topics, methods and properties of LabVIEW. There is also a possible solution in the book. The tasks are available to the reader for execution as a virtual instrument (VI), the program function can be tested. The block diagrams in the VIs are not locked, but can be changed so that the programming can also be adapted to your own measurement attempts.
For non-commercial and non-academic purposes, National Instruments offers a free LabVIEW Community Edition to private users. The Community Edition is expected to be available from May 2020.
