Extend learning beyond the lab with an affordable, student-ready measurement and instrumentation device.

Designed for hands-on experimentation in or outside the lab, NI myDAQ combines portability with a comprehensive set of instruments. It allows for real engineering and, when combined with NI LabVIEW and Multisim software, gives students the power to prototype systems and analyze circuits outside the lecture and lab.

NI myDAQ features eight commonly used plug-and-play computer-based lab instruments based on LabVIEW including a digital multimeter (DMM), oscilloscope, and function generator. Students can access all the ready-to-run software instruments to perform experiments and exercises with the Bode analyzer, arbitrary waveform generator, dynamic signal analyzer (fast Fourier transform), digital input, and digital output.

The platform includes a data acquisition engine that students can use to measure two differential analog input and analog output channels (200 kS/s, 16 bits, ±10 V). The eight digital input and digital output lines (3.3 V TTL-compatible) help students interface both low voltage TTL (LVTTL) and 5 V TTL digital circuits. NI myDAQ supplies enough power for simple circuits and sensors with +5 V, +15 V, and -15 V power supply outputs (up to 500 mW of power). The isolated 60 V DMM can measure both AC and DC voltage and current as well as resistance, diode voltage, and continuity.
