Abstract

Virtual instruments using new measurement technology were built by a set of hardware and software with computers. The hardware aspect uses a data acquisition card and a workstation. The software aspect utilises LabVIEW to design the front panels of virtual instruments and data processing programs. This makes users operate the computers in the same way as operating the traditional electronic instruments designed by them. The main purpose of this study is to develop and arrange the teaching materials and laboratory equipment of virtual instrumental measurement technology. Further, the results of the research will be integrated into a three-hour technical class each week. The students who take this course can use the technology in other lab classes to obtain multi-measurement assistance and increased efficiency. In the research process, following the literature research, consultation with experts and interviews with students, the laboratory facility, class outline, order and time arrangement of topics and course plan were built. In addition, expert examination will help amend the teaching materials and any unsuitable design.
