NI myDAQ and Circuits 2nd Edition Textbook Bundle
Designed by National Instruments with high-quality Texas Instruments Analog Integrated Circuits (ICs) The hardware system diagram and list of Texas Instruments IC's in the NI myDAQ user guide depicts how TI data converters, amplifiers, and interface and power management circuits were used in the design of NI myDAQ.
Extend the Capabilities with LabVIEW and Multisim. Verify homework solutions with real signals using Multisim for circuit simulation and LabVIEW for automating measurements and performing signal processing.
Do more with NI myDAQ. Learn how to use NI myDAQ with three different software platforms, troubleshoot problems with your NI myDAQ, and ask your own questions on the discussion forums.
About the Circuits Textbook:
Fawwaz T. Ulaby of the University of Michigan
Michel M. Maharbiz of the University of California, Berkeley
This textbook conveys a set of principles and problem solving techniques for
a first course in electrical engineering circuit analysis, and also provides a
valuable framework for subsequent studies. The second edition of this text
offers a number of significant enhancements.
New Features to the Second Edition:
- Includes two new chapters: one on Three-Phase Circuits (Chap. 10) and
another on Magnetically Coupled Circuits (Chapter 11)
- NI myDAQ tutorials and myDAQ Problems: In addition to solving a circuit
problem analytically and simulating its behavior with NI Multisim, a
complementary third approach is to physically build the circuit on a circuit
board and use the NI myDAQ to interface the circuit to a computer. The
interface allows students to use the computer both as a function generator
to excite the circuit and as a multimeter or oscilloscope to measure its
response. A NI myDAQ tutorial developed by Professor Ed Doering of the Rose-Hulman
Institute of Technology is included on the DVD which is included with the
book. This is in addition to video tutorials on how to use computer-based
instruments, and 36 end of chapter NI myDAQ Design Problems
- About 200 end-of-chapter problems have been added, increasing the total
number of problems in this textbook to 834.
- Concept questions strategically placed within chapter, which encourages
you to think critically about the material you have just read.
- Updated Technology Briefs and several new ones are added.
- The previous RLC Circuits Chapter (6) and Laplace Transform Analysis
Technique Chapter (10) are now combined in the new Chapter 6, Circuit
Analysis by Laplace Transform.
- Additional examples and new concept illustrations that help students
consolidate their understanding of the subject.
- A new appendix on the NI MathScript RT Module and MATLAB
- A student version of Mathscript is included on the DVD for use with
matrix inversion and other calculations. (MathScript RT Module is a computer
program developed and sold by National Instruments, as a module in LabVIEW.
The basic commands used by MATLAB also work in MathScript RT Module. Unless
otherwise noted, all MATLAB commands used in this book and DVD also work in
MathScript RT Module.)
- Latest versions of both NI LabVIEW and NI Multisim Student Edition
Software on a DVD packaged with each book.

Nice bundle, saves money
by Javier Gonzalez on August 27, 2015
The combination of hardware, software, and documentation included in the bundle is excellent. Recommended for any student interested in electronics. Construction of the myDAQ is top notch. Materials and components are of high quality, and the whole thing appears rather durable. Leads are of good quality. Everything needed for complete use was included. Packaging was quite nice, like unpacking an Apple product. The myDAQ should last well into your fourth year of engineering school and beyond. Individual instruments were tested and compared to actual bench top instruments. Results below: Test signals were generated using an old HP 3312 and the myDAQ scope reading was compared a Tektronix TDS2002C. Readings were accurate (and a bit slow). Square waves correctly displayed slight overshoot, just enough for school lab work. The unit does not include an oscilloscope probe, but you still get acceptable measurements using standard jumpers (or just a length of cable) as long the ground lead is used. Unfortunately the myDAQ has a rather limited frequency range and lacks the precision to detect signals that would normally require proper probes. This is probably why no probe was included. The DMM functions were tested next to a Fluke 87v. and readings were spot-on. Again, accuracy was there but you only get two-digit precision. Ranges are very limited. You don't want to push high power through a myDAQ. The power supply generated very accurate voltages. Unfortunately, the power supply is anemic in terms of its ability to push current. It has just enough juice to generate interesting test signals, especially within the audio spectrum. The arbitrary signal and function generators were very accurate. You get basic functionality, enough for most academic labs. Again, while accuracy was excellent, range and amplitude were a bit challenged. As long as you don't require high frequencies, these will do nicely. When you spend this kind of money on instrumentation, you expect accuracy. The myDAQ may have limited range, but its accuracy is excellent. You can definitely trust its readings. I already own bench top versions of the included test equipment but they're all in my workshop. I purchased the myDAQ for an online course so I could follow along with the courseware and complete the electrical circuitry in the confines of my home office. For this, it was perfect. It was incredibly convenient to have a full set of test equipment in a small white box that sat nice and neatly at the corner of my computer desk. I was able to complete the course and all electrical circuitry in the comfort of my home office instead of having to drag a PC and textbook into my workshop. No doubt that the myDAQ is incredibly versatile with all the included components, but it seriously lacks muscle when pushed to the edge. This is a fantastic tool for students but is simply not powerful enough to move beyond an academic setting. It easily supported all course lab requirements, but as I started modifying designs I found myself yearning for more current from the power supply, a little higher sample rate from the spectrum analyzer, just a bit higher frequency from the signal generator, more speed generating Bode plots, etc. Overall, as a teaching aid for Electrical Engineering, the myDAQ and included tectbook are excellent.
