Modular instrumentation system streams data using USB 2.0 Product News 5/1/2006 Post a comment National Instruments is debuting a modular platform for sensor and electrical measurements under Windows. Useful in the lab, in the field, or on the production line, NI's CompactDAQ system offers an eight-slot chassis that accepts I/O modules capable of measuring up to 256 channels of electrical, physical, mechanical and acoustic signals. By combining plug-and-play USB with modular instrumentation, NI CompactDAQ comprises small, simple, portable, and cost-effective data-acq and test-and-measurem
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
