Academic Sources
An Inexpensive, Open-Source USB Arduino Data Acquisition Device for Chemical Instrumentation This is a very simplistic project based around an Arduino Uno for chemistry purposes. It's prototyped on a breadboard, so the NanoDAQ might be a step up.
Performance of data acquisition system for monitoring PV system parameters This is a PV monitoring system using an NI DAQ. It might be worth while to compare the NanoDAQ to this for this specific case study and see if we undercut on price, and increase accuracy.
Development of a new temperature data acquisition system for solar energy applications This is a system that's capturing device temperatures, using a custom board. Once again might be nice to compare to.
FPGA-Based Reconfigurable Data Acquisition System for Industrial Sensors A general purpose DAQ based around an FPGA. Much quicker sampling speeds than I can achieve - but lacks on the Analog reconfiguration.
Design and Implementation of PIC16F877A Microcontroller Based Data Acquisition System with Visual Basic Based GUI A custom DAQ put together on Perfboard around a PIC. Hooks to a standard VB GUI. Might be a good comparison for software interface.
A Low-Cost Data Acquisition System for Automobile Dynamics Applications I really like their analysis of how many sensors are being used v/ peak sample frequency. This is a good characterization that should be done for our device.
Tractor hydraulic power data acquisition system A NI DAQ system is being used to analyze pressure & flow data on a tractor. Would be curious to see of the NanoDAQ would still be compatible & cheaper.
