Hi !
Happy New Year !
Now to the question :)
I am looking for a cheap DAQ for my PocketPC 2003 Toshiba e805 or for WinCE 4.2 NEC Mobilepro 900c. Eventually the DAQ can be a PCI board.
The Toshiba accpets CF I/II cards and the NEC - CF I/II and PCMCIA cards.
Every suggestion, opinion, etc is welcome !
Also if someone can recommend an online retailer - feel free to share !

Thanks !

i would contact the manufacturer of the instrument that you are taking measurements from to see if it has an option for PCMCIA.

The price was $445 at ebay. NI seemed to be selling PCMCIA cards for over$1000.

This table of supported devices for DAQmx software doesn't have column for Windows CE, but DAQmx software itself does have a Windows CE version. It might be wise to contact NI or do further research before buying, to make sure the device is supported on your operating system.

That is the problem :) I have the device that logs the data, but not the sensors :)
