Edaq530: A Transparent, Open-End and Open-Source Measurement Solution in Natural Science Education
Kopasz, Katalin; Makra, Peter; Gingl, Zoltan
European Journal of Physics, v32 n2 p491-504 Mar 2011
We present Edaq530, a low-cost, compact and easy-to-use digital measurement solution consisting of a thumb-sized USB-to-sensor interface and measurement software. The solution is fully open-source, our aim being to provide a viable alternative to professional solutions. Our main focus in designing Edaq530 has been versatility and transparency. In this paper, we shall introduce the capabilities of Edaq530, complement it by showing a few sample experiments, and discuss the feedback we have received in the course of a teacher training workshop in which the participants received personal copies of Edaq530 and later made reports on how they could utilize Edaq530 in their teaching. (Contains 13 figures.)
