NI Modernizes Teaching Solution With Updates to NI ELVIS III

Improvements help students learn through a project-based learning
approach with associated curriculum designed to easily integrate into
all facets of an engineering program

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#NIWeeklt;/agt;–NIWeek – NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of platform-based
systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s
greatest engineering challenges, today announced updates to its
university-level teaching solution, the NI Educational Laboratory
Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) III. The new application boards
and upgraded software for NI ELVIS III provide a modernized, simpler
interface for students to take measurements using industry-standard
hardware even faster. With the four new elements of NI ELVIS III,
engineering educators can:

  • Teach measurements and the Internet of Things (IoT) with the new NI
    Automated Measurements Board
  • Troubleshoot and instrument projects – no installation required with
    completely online, mobile-optimized instrumentation
  • Teach controls using the power of The MathWorks, Inc. Simulink®
    software and the Quanser Controls Board for NI ELVIS III
  • Teach analog and microelectronics with the new Texas Instruments (TI)
    Analog Electronics Board (available later this summer)

Expansion into the areas of automated measurement and analog electronics
in prebuilt hardware and curriculum is critical to the completeness of
the NI ELVIS ecosystem. Coupled with software updates and add-ons meant
to further modernize the mobile user experience and reduce the barrier
to entry for courses, NI ELVIS III sits poised to transform what it
means to complete a lab.

“Bringing together industry leaders for academic solutions can help
bridge the gap between the desired skills in industry and the concepts
presented to students in the classroom,” said Doug Phillips, university
program marketing director at Texas Instruments. “Pairing TI’s
leadership in semiconductor technology with NI’s expertise in test and
measurement in NI ELVIS III equips students with the technical skills
they need to deliver the innovations of the future.”

Dave Wilson, NI vice president of Academic Marketing, said, “Today’s
students are now digital natives, and they expect their learning
environment to represent the world they live in and the future they will
be recruited to work in. You can’t teach the future with labs of the
past, and schools that use a holistic solution like NI ELVIS III to
attract and retain the best and brightest students allow departments to
stay ahead of leading industry trends, ultimately accelerating discovery
in the world of engineering.”

Combined with Multisim and LabVIEW, NI ELVIS III provides the most
versatile, complete teaching solution, so engineering students are
equipped with the skills they need for productivity, innovation and
discovery in their future careers.
