Analog to Digital PC Signal Interface?



WOW!



BH! I had no idea that such a cool oscilloscope was free for the downloading. That thing is fantastic! Dual trace no less! And it even saves the data in a form that can be pasted directly into a spreadsheet. This is awesome! You just saved me a couple weeks of work writing a data capture routine!

Tom was right, - check out alternative solutions! Who would have thought that I could get a dual-trace computer-integrated data-point-generating oscilloscope for FREE!!!

I still need a gradient strip though. But now I'm wondering if I can somehow use sound and a microphone or just a magnet and a microphone? That would even save the trouble of building a transducer! I might be able to get a degree without doing any work at all.

Well, I'll still have to do all the differential analysis of the motion, and that's really what this course is all about. The sensor and data collection is really just a side track.

Thanks! It really pays to ask questions on these forums!
