What is eTCB? The eTCB System consists of the custom-built trainer board (eTCB) that works with National Instruments’ ELVIS (Electronics Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite) and a personal computer for students to perform DC/AC lab experiments.
What is the purpose of eTCB? • Perform DC/AC lab experiments • Work with real components and real circuits • Measure real electrical quantities, so students to not need to rely exclusively on simulation • Perform measurements and develop industry-relevant experience • Offer a flexible, practical and cost effective lab environment
Delmar Learning and National Instruments: • eTCB is a product that supports National Instruments’ ELVIS workstation • If your institution has invested in, or is considering the ELVIS system, eTCB can help enhance instruction and retention in the DC/AC circuit portion of your curriculum.
