Portable school laboratory ELLA

The result of the project is a school lab platform ELLA with a set of teaching boards and courseware for school program practice covering electricity paragraph, based on cutting-edge virtual instruments technology. The base station represented by data acquisition (DAQ) device in a transparent ABS enclosure with slide rails for exchangeable boards that eliminates improper connection and protect the board plug. Teaching bundle includes six exchangeable teaching boards for school curriculum practice, elective learning and student project activity. Lab software aims at the lowest possible barrier to entry. It includes scheme power supply controls and several measured data representing modes: pointing instrument, scope, and array. The ELLA DAQ module totally performs ELVISmx full-functional virtual instruments. The compatibility with LabVIEW graphical system design environment is ensured.
