NI ELVIS Engineering Lab Workstation

The NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) is a modular engineering educational laboratory platform.

• Seven hardware instruments plus control I/O containing 16 AI, 4 AO, and 40 DIO
• 4-channel, 100 MS/s oscilloscope sample rate with 14-bit resolution and 50 MHz bandwidth
• 16-channel, 100 MS/s logic analyzer/pattern generator
• 16-channel, 1 MS/s analog input with 16-bit resolution
• 40 DIO lines individually programmable as input, output, PWM, or digital protocols



Combines 12 commonly used laboratory instruments in a compact, lab-ready form factor to help educators teach engineering concepts.

The NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) Engineering Lab Workstation is a modular engineering educational laboratory platform built for academia. With its hands-on approach, educators can help students learn practical, experimental engineering skills. The NI ELVIS Engineering Lab Workstation includes an oscilloscope, digital multimeter, function generator, variable power supply, Bode analyzer, and other common lab instruments. You can connect a PC to the NI ELVIS Engineering Lab Workstation using USB and build circuits on its detachable proto board. With WiFi, Ethernet and USB connectivity on the NI ELVIS III, and compatibility with both Mac and PC, students can easily work together and rapidly interact with the instruments and online resources to quickly advance their skills to be industry-ready.

NI ELVIS and Software

Software includes interactive web and desktop soft front panels, instrumentation support for Windows and Mac, API support for LabVIEW and text-based languages, shipping examples, and detailed help files.
