National Instruments has announced the availability of NI LabView for The Infinity Project, a version of the LabView graphical programming environment designed for schools and colleges.
NI LabView for The Infinity Project is designed to work with the other components of the National Instruments Infinity Technology Kit, which includes the Texas Instruments DSP-based student board, the NI Speedy-33, a USB webcam and audio speakers. The software also comes with a course management interface to provide easy access for teachers to existing labs and create new labs.
LabView has been integrated into hands-on exercises, allowing students to design and explore existing technologies like cell phones, digital cameras and MP3 players. The intuitive graphical programming language provides educators an engaging and fun way to teach engineering concepts through project-based learning.
