Just the basics--issues with speed, aliasing, etc.
Plug in USB board, use some jumper wires, etc.
See "Example point by point, software timed.vi" but create your own VI from scratch, XAIN.vi from the company is another example VI
Use AIn.vi from the MCC Universal Library
Use a loop
Use a low frequency initially (less than 1 Hz) And make sure you have connections correct
Graph the output wave to a waveform graph or waveform chart (your choice, but influences programming style)
Questions (take notes while you explore / think), What is the maximum frequency wave that you can reliably sample?, What limits the frequency?, (The user manual may help you understand), Save screenshots and update your notebook as you explore these questions. You can also right-click graphs and export the data to excel, or you can save programmatically if you'd like
Commit your VI when things are working and when you're finished with this step (i.e. you can commit more than once).
Push your final items (VI, screenshots, graphs, anything else) to your forked github project
See "Example buffered read, one time.vi"
Recreate this VI and adjust parameters to read a 500 Hz wave (impossible w/ point by point) with a high sampling rate (how high can you go?) (needs to be much higher than 500 Hz to be able to see the wave, of course)
Same as above with lab notebook, screenshot, graph, etc. & committing and pushing
Same as usual--finish notebook by Friday night, comment on others by Monday noon.
