Rationale
Virtual instrumentation combines mainstream commercial technologies, such as the PC, with flexible software and a wide variety of measurement hardware, so one can create user-defined systems that meet their exact application needs. Virtual instrumentation has led to a simpler way of looking at measurement systems. Instead of using several stand-alone instruments for multiple measurement types and performing rudimentary analysis by hand, biomedical engineer now can quickly and cost-effectively create a system equipped with analysis software and a single measurement device that has the capabilities of a multitude of biomedical instruments for human body measurements.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire required learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes:

i. Explain virtual instrument concepts.
ii. Select proper data acquisition hardware.
iii. Configure data acquisition hardware in LabVIEW.
iv. Use LabVIEWand configure the related hardware like DAQ and transducers.
v. Create virtual instruments for practical works.

Active Learning
i. NI LabVIEW9 or later version
ii. Driver softwares
iii. NI biobench
