Hi all ya' folks at Arduino Forums,I am new here (obvious).And... I need some help.The thing is, I need a way to make a certain DAQ (Data AcQuisition device) using Arduino, which must be similar to the famous National Instruments' device called myDAQ1. I will appreciate any guidance and/or involvement.Thanks everyone! 1 : Sorry for under-estimating you, dear reader, by explaining everything, as you must be an electronics expert (or amateur) and might as well know everything or most of the things I said
You would have to post links to the specific DAQ unit's feature, datasheets, manuals,etc.Many can utilize standard serial links that the arduino could utilize to communicate to such devices.But you have to be sure of the voltage levels as in RS-232 serial Vs TTL serial that the arduino utilizes.Lefty
So, where, according to you, should I learn EE instead of attending this class?
So, I asked him if I were to make an Arduino alternative. He politely answered, "You will find online software for an oscilloscope and the function generator. Maybe a DMM too. But the spectrum analyzer will be harder and we supply some special instruments written in LabVIEW. Be interesting to see how far you get! By the way, we looked at the Arduino choices early on and none of them had the capabilities and performance we needed."Can we prove him wrong?
