USB and Measurement

Back in the day when I was a research assistant at BHRA a lot of test and measurement equipment was difficult hook up to computers and often results had to be measured by hand and transferred to computers for analysis.

nowadays the USB interface seems to be taking over from IEEE-488 standard that some of our reassuringly expensive HP gear used.

I blogged before about some USB temperature measurement devices and just noticed that one of my SEO clients has a sound meter that has a USB interface – back in the day we had custom built interfaces to measure sound in BHRA’s anechoic chamber £3000-40000 pounds per channel i seem to recall(oh an that was only 12 bit resolution )
