**Programming in general**

The Instructions: Inputs and outputs MATLAB, C, Java, Excel function, operator, method [m,b]= linearfit(x, 3*x+4) LabVIEW, Simulink, FPGA Blocks with inputs and outputs 3/28/2012 Programming comparison

4
**Programming in general**

Structure: Order of execution MATLAB, C, Java, Excel Sequential: Line after line Routing commands Loops, conditional, break, goto, LabVIEW, As data is available Loops Simulink, FPGA Blocks with inputs and outputs FPGA physically simultaneous Simulink numerically simultaneous 3/28/2012 Programming comparison

5
**Setting up a LabVIEW Program**

Front Panel Controls: how the user controls the program Indicators: Displaying results Function Wiring for using your VI’s by other VI’s Block Diagram Data: All controls and indicators, Also constants Doing something: Add functions Control what happens: Add structure 3/28/2012 LabVIEW Components

6
**Front Panel Inputs: Number, Array, Matrix File names, Categories**

3/28/2012 LabVIEW Components

7
Front Panel Inputs: Binary More Numeric 3/28/2012 LabVIEW Components

**Function Blocks Icons Blocks Default values Using Context help**

Icons: little to no description Function Blocks Icons Blocks Default values Using Context help Hover over icons, blocks or wires to see what it is and the different signals Blocks expand to show all possible signals 3/28/2012 LabVIEW Components

9
**Loops For Loop While Loop Sequence loops Case loops**

Indexing over arrays While Loop Wait for an event to stop (such as user or trigger) Feedback block Sequence loops Specify execution order Important for local variables Case loops Conditional Execution 3/28/2012 LabVIEW Components

10
**Data Types Waveforms Arrays (column) 2d Arrays**

Values, to, Sample frequency Arrays (column) 2d Arrays Clusters (similar to structures) Objects (typical for controlling DAQ’s, etc) Easiest thing to do is use the port and create constant to see 3/28/2012 LabVIEW Components
