NI just announced open registration for the NI Technical Symposium, a series of events throughout North America that showcase the latest NI technologies and development techniques for engineers and scientists working with measurement and control systems.


Offered from October to December in 24 different cities, each NI Technical Symposium event will deliver hands-on training, new product demonstrations, technology exhibitions from National Instruments Alliance Partners and presentations from NI engineers and industry professionals. The program features a morning keynote and more than a dozen technical sessions designed to help you increase productivity, reduce costs and optimize your system’s performance.


Highlights from this year’s technical program include hardware-in-the-loop and real-time testing methods, RF vector signal analysis techniques, best practices for using NI LabVIEW system design software, and tips for optimizing DC measurements for speed and stability. NI engineers will also introduce you to LabVIEW 2011 and provide hands-on programming with the LabVIEW Real-Time Module. Additional product trainings cover the new one-slot NI CompactDAQ chassis and next-generation NI Single-Board RIO devices.

NI recently released two new training courses covering LabVIEW Real-Time.  LabVIEW Real-Time 1& 2 will replace the previous LabVIEW Real-Time Application Development course.  Both courses are two-day classroom courses or three half-day online courses.


LabVIEW Real-Time 1 introduces the concepts of real-time development including determining when a real-time operating system is needed and identifying the hardware architecture of a real-time system.  Students will be able to get hands on experience setting up real-time hardware and software using CompactRIO and LabVIEW Real-Time.  In addition, LabVIEW Real-Time 1 covers hardware and software timing, communication techniques, performance verification and deploying a real-time application.


LabVIEW Real-Time 2 starts off having students look at application and design requirements for a real-time system.  Students then learn more advanced data sharing and communication methods before moving on to learn techniques to improve the reliability of a real-time application.  Finally, the course covers benchmarking, validation, and optimization.
