Updates to its university-level teaching solution, the NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) III have been released by NI at NIWeek 2019 in Austin. New application boards and upgraded software for NI ELVIS III provide a modernised, 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:

  • Teach measurements and the Internet of Things (IoT) with the NI Automated Measurements Board
  • Troubleshoot and instrument projects – no installation required with completely online, mobile-optimised instrumentation
  • Teach controls using the power of The MathWorks, Inc. Simulink software and the Quanser Controls Board for NI ELVIS III
  • Teach analogue and microelectronics with the new Texas Instruments (TI) Analogue Electronics Board which will be available later in the summer

Expansion into the areas of automated measurement and analogue electronics in prebuilt hardware and curriculum is critical to the completeness of the NI ELVIS ecosystem.

“Bringing together industry leaders for academic solutions can help bridge the gap between the desired skills in 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.
