Open Source Data Acquisition Devices Literature review[edit | edit source]

An Inexpensive, Open-Source USB Arduino Data Acquisition Device for Chemical Instrumentation[edit | edit source]

Grinias JP, Whitfield JT, Guetschow ED, Kennedy RT. An inexpensive, open-source USB Arduino data acquisition device for chemical instrumentation. ACS Publications; 2016.

  • The low-cost data acquisition device can be built using an Arduino Uno board along with a microcontroller.
  • This data acquisition device is USB-based and utilizes the 16-bit analog-to-digital converter along with Arduino for control and data acquisition.
  • The open-source software required for this device is developed in python and the device is compatible with any laptop or desktop.

Low-cost open-source multifunction data acquisition system for accurate measurements[edit | edit source]

Ferrero Martín FJ, Valledor Llopis M, Campo Rodríguez JC, Blanco González JR, Menéndez Blanco J. Low-cost open-source multifunction data acquisition system for accurate measurements. 2014 Sep 1;55:265–71.

  • There are three types of general DAQ configurations
    • Computer-based systems
    • System based on autonomous instruments
    • Modular acquisition systems
  • The lost cost data acquisition system can be built focussing on the computer-based configuration where the instrument is connected to the computer by a USB port.
  • OpenDAQ is better and cheaper than NI USB-6009 in terms of analog inputs/outputs, etc.
  • Analog and Digital blocks are two main functional blocks in the hardware implementation of openDAQ. The analog block consists of an instrumentation amplifier INA826 and analog multiplexers CD4051 and DAC converter. Digital block consists of AVR ATMEGA644P microcontroller and USB controller CPC2102.
  • The firmware of this DAQ system is based on the AVR ATMEGA644P microcontroller. The firmware is compatible with Arduino.
  • LabVIEW and Python can be used to operate the device.

Design and Implementation of a Low-Cost DAQ System for Thermoelectric Property Measurements[edit | edit source]

Sumphao T, Thanachayanont C, Seetawan T. Design and Implementation of a Low-Cost DAQ System for Thermoelectric Property Measurements. Procedia Engineering. 2012 Jan 1;32:614–20.

  • The microcontroller-based DAQ system can be built for thermoelectric property measurements.
  • DAQ circuit is built with MCP3553 low power integrating device and PIC18F4550 USB microcontroller.
  • Software needed to use the device is supported by microchip technology and another PC driver is needed for USB communication.
