Created by Mark Jenson at Concordia College, this site, currently in the ASDL Collection, provides two useful resources for instructors and students of analytical chemistry. The first is a collection of LabVIEW virtual instruments (VIs) for demonstrating topics such as signal-to-noise ratios, boxcar and ensemble averaging, power spectra, digital filtering, analog-to-digital conversions, and the Nyquest frequency. For users that do not have a working copy of LabVIEW, executable versions are included that use LabVIEW’s free run-time engine (Windows only). The second set of resources is a series of tutorials for teaching students how to write their own VIs. The tutorials are well thought out and nicely build on each other.
