mySTEM™ Project Board
miniSystem designed for use with NI myDAQ and LabVIEW
What is the mySTEM™ Project Board?
The mySTEM™ Project Board is a miniSystem designed to allow students to create solutions to unique design problems. It allows students to connect the National Instruments myDAQ to a variety of output devices. It is an affordable solution that turns the NI myDAQ into a programmable action controller and allows for the control of four separate output channels.
Allows students to connect the NI myDAQ to large, high-current output devices
This is needed because the signals created by the myDAQ are very low power and in order to control larger output a separate circuit driver is necessary.
Allows students to focus on signal processing and the logic of control
by minimizing the wiring needed for students to write a control program in LabVIEW and connect to various types of output devices when setting up projects.
Affordable and Ideal for supporting creativity and exploring a wider range of solutions
In essence, the mySTEM™ Board turns the myDAQ into a programmable action device that allows for control of four separate output channels with adaptability to many types of situations.
