National Instruments has announced the release of the NI myDAQ portable instrumentation device for students in university engineering courses

The device is designed by National Instruments and features Texas Instruments analogue circuits including data converters, amplifiers and interface and power management components.

NI MyDAQ hardware integrates with NI Labview graphical development software to help reverse the trend of rising educational costs by giving students hands-on interaction with real analogue circuits, sensor measurements and signal processing for about the price of an engineering textbook.

NI MyDAQ is said to be compact enough to fit in a student's pocket and is powered by USB connection.

It bridges the gap between theory and real-world practice by providing students with eight Labview software-based instruments including a digital multimeter (DMM), oscilloscope, function generator, Bode analyser, dynamic signal analyser, arbitrary waveform generator, digital reader and digital writer.

Students can use all these instruments to perform many laboratory-style experiments.

When combined with Labview on a PC, NI MyDAQ delivers a complete solution for hands-on learning of core concepts in engineering curricula that include analogue circuits, sensor measurements and signals and systems courses.

NI MyDAQ also integrates with the NI Multisim circuits education environment to provide a far-reaching educational platform.

The device includes the eight software-based instruments, DMM cables, an audio cable and a reusable storage tray.

Labview Student Edition software and Multisim Student Edition software are also available with the device at a discount to students.
