By now teams should have received an e-mail blast
announcing the National Instruments Pilot Program. The pilot program will represent a unique opportunity to use and incorporate National Instruments NI-DAQ hardware in the design, prototype, test, and validation phases of the US-FIRST build. Teams that are accepted through the application
process will receive a National Instruments USB-DAQ 6009 device
to be used with LabVIEW 8.0 Student Edition.
For more information, check out the new National Instruments LabVIEW and Data Acquisition Forum
(and its sub-forums). These forums are located in the Technical branch of our forums.
The forum is designed to answer questions about National Instruments LabVIEW software and also to facilitate discussions on using National Instruments hardware and software in data acquisition. The 2006 season will be the first season that National Instruments LabVIEW software will be made available to US-FIRST teams, and the forum is being sponsored to facilitate US-FIRST teams in their use of the software.
