Interface to analog-digital-converter

pbourke's picture

I'm interested in using these cards to capture analog signals and using the result in QC. http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/en/nid/201630 It seems there are drivers for C programming interface http://joule.ni.com/nidu/cds/view/p/id/2127 How hard do you think creating a patch for this would be? Heard of it being done before with another similar unit? Anyone prepared to quote?

I would recommend an Ardjuno board (http://www.arduino.cc/) it has plenty of analog inputs and does serial com through USB. Also I have good experience with a joystick controller ( http://www.leobodnar.com/products/BU0836/ ) no serial com or driver needed, it presents itself as a standard game controller (HID deviice) to the os. Supported by QC. Good luck, v.

Yes, the Leo Bodnar chips rock. Easy-peasy to use, no drivers, the hardest thing is there is a little soldering leads to get wiring to your inputs. He has another version with EZ-connectors for a little more $$.

For other uses Bodnar + ControllerMate works with just about any software. cheers jd
