Automated test and measurement solution provider National Instruments (NI) 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:
“Bringing together industry leaders for academic solutions can help bridge the gap between the desired skills in the 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.
