Keynote Presentation: System Design for the 21st Century

During this keynote presentation, hear about the latest innovations that will equip engineers and scientists around the world with tools that accelerate productivity and discovery through graphical system design. Hear the visionary approaches to solving some of the most challenging engineering applications around the globe and glimpse the future through the eyes of engineers.


What's New in LabVIEW 2013

Attend this key session and learn about new NI LabVIEW 2013 features designed to accelerate your success, and take a demo-heavy tour through the latest version of LabVIEW.


Next Generation Data Logging System

As data acquisition and logging needs grow more complex, the systems recording the physical and electrical phenomena of today and tomorrow need to meet new challenges. Learn how to build a next-generation stand-alone data-logging system to take advantage of the latest trends and technologies.


Embedded Software Validation: Increasing the Value of Your Test System Investments

The complexity of electronic controlled systems is growing at a quickening pace driven by new actuation and power technologies, increasing safety and reliability expectations, and the rapid expansion of software in these systems. As a result, the test applications used to validate these systems must evolve at an equal or greater rate to keep pace. During this session, explore trends National Instruments is seeing in this area including how test component re-use is providing superior system quality and validation efficiency by enabling consistent system level testing, results analysis, and reporting throughout the entire development process.

The Impact of Digital Energy on System Design and Test

Across many industries there is a growing trend toward advanced control of electric power. The switching frequency and power increases in high power digital switches as well as an increase in complexity of control algorithms has made digital energy storage and generation an attractive, efficient and scalable resource. This trend can be seen in the automotive industry, the aerospace industry, the off-highway equipment industry as well as the grid utility and consumer power generation industries. As digital power systems become more complex, faster and more powerful, the associated control systems must similarly keep up with increased complexity. This session will offer some guidance on ways to improve the design and test process for complex digital energy systems.


Instrumentation Redefined - An Introduction to NI Vector Signal Transceivers

With the release of industry's first Vector Signal Transceiver, NI redefined instrumentation. This software-centric architecture represents a new era in which engineers and scientists can use LabVIEW to tailor open, field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based hardware for their specific needs. During this session, explore the VST architecture and cutting edge application examples, and also learn how you can take advantage of the open FPGA on NI Vector Signal Transceivers (VSTs) with NI-provided examples and application-specific IP. Learn how to use this IP to create VST personalities for specific use cases, from accelerated automated test to tests requiring functionality not found on a traditional vector signal analyzer or vector signal generator.


Unleash the Next Generation of System Designers (Academic Session)

The engineers of tomorrow will need to design increasingly complex integrated systems to meet the demands of a rapidly changing technological landscape. To do so, the engineering students of today require hands-on education to understand the necessary theory underpinning system components. They also require experience synthesizing these components into an operational system. In this session, NI unveils how students can equip themselves with the proper tools to “do engineering” like never before and graduate as an unmatched generation of system designers.


Optional Free Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD) Exams

Sign up to sit your Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD) Exam for free at the conference. National Instruments certifications are industry-recognised credentials that distinguish experts in using NI software for developing measurement and automation solutions. NI offers multiple certification designations to help determine different levels of expertise.

Last year over 30 educators, engineers, scientists registered to sit their CLAD exams at the symposiums. Places are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
