Download our Tablets in DAQ White Paper.
As tablets gain popularity and take away market share from conventional laptops and desktops, Measurement Computing is at the forefront of targeting these new devices with our USB DAQ.
The USB-2001-TC Android™ Temperature Chart application demonstrates one of the features of Measurement Computing’s DAQFlex devices. DAQFlex devices interface with an open source library and a simple, standardized USB communication protocol. This allows developers to design a system on virtually any operating system using any hardware platform that supports USB host mode.
The USB-2001-TC on Android Honeycomb (3.1) or above was targeted specifically for this demo, as it was designed with a special purpose in mind. It utilizes Android’s native Java USB API directly, focusing on a single platform.
C# Developers can design cross-platform applications for Windows®, Linux®, and Mac®, using the DAQFlex API for .NET along with the Mono project. For Android, Java is the standard programming language. Due to the open source nature of the DAQFlex API, it can be easily ported to other languages and operating systems as this example does.
The application installer (APK) and sample code for Android OS are available for download at mccdaq.com/apk. Download the Quick Start for complete instructions on installing and running this application.
Single-Channel Thermocouple Input Device
