Using Your PC to Take Measurements

Data acquisition hardware adds inputs and outputs (I/O) to standard laptop and desktop computers, turning a general-purpose PC into a flexible, high-performance measurement or control system.

Standard PC buses such as USB and PCI Express provide a path for measurements to be streamed directly into your computer for user-defined processing, analysis, and visualization.
