Pico Technology adds data logging to Raspberry Pi

Pico Technology adds data logging to the Raspberry Pi

Oscilloscope and data acquisition specialist Pico Technology has added data logging capabilities to the Raspberry Pi.

The company's DrDAQ single board data logger is designed to provide 17 I/O channels for the credit card sized computer. This gives users access to a 100kHz oscilloscope, arbitrary waveform generator, four digital I/Os (two with pulsecounting input and PWM output), 24bit rgb led, built in light sensor, temperature sensor, microphone and sound level sensor, resistance measuring input and pH/redox sensor input.

There are also three inputs for Pico's own sensors or for custom devices. The device requires a single usb connection for power and data. A Debian driver and some C++ example code can be downloaded for free from Pico's website.

In other Raspberry Pi news, the Summer Programming Contest is now open for entries.
