Implementation of virtual instruments 1.4. Modular application development 1.5. Design techniques, user interface and input / output control 2. Laboratory project of electronic instrumentation.
Learning activities and methodology
The teaching methodology will include: Lectures, where students will be introduced to the basic knowledge to be acquired. Students will be provided with lecture notes and will have basic reference texts that will allow them to complete and deepen their knowledge of the subject. Practical classes oriented to the resolution of exercises and examples in the context of a real practical case. These classes will be complemented with the resolution of practical exercises by the student. Laboratory practical sessions.
