The Emona DATEx board has been defined specifically for teaching introductory digital and analog communications topics in electrical and computer engineering curricula.
Emona DATEx hardware for the NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) features a hands-on, block diagram approach in which students build and measure communications systems that correspond to communications system block diagrams commonly found in textbooks. Working from block diagrams, students create communications circuits by wiring together system components with plug-in patch cables.
NI ELVIS is a modular engineering educational laboratory platform developed specifically for academia. With its hands-on approach, educators can help students learn practical, experimental skills.
The configuration of NI ELVIS and the Emona DATEx board includes:
NI ELVIS II workstation (1.25 MS/s oscilloscope)
NI ELVISmx driver software
Emona DATEx add-on board
Emona software (developed in NI LabVIEW software) and courseware
USB cable and connection
Educators can also upgrade to the NI ELVIS II+ system, which includes a 100 MS/s oscilloscope for further measurement capabilities.
