We'll never make it in time for the DIY Test Equipment initiative (we may have a first prototype In the Year 2525). But it can help you if you want to build a device that can be automated with LABView or similar*.
What's in the current version:
- working firmware with a SCPI integration. Complies to SCPI standard out of box.
- tested PCB with several ADC and DAC channels, programmable and readable via SCPI - isolated and with a voltage reference
- LCD interface
Our goal is to extend Peter Oakes' popular DC Load into a programmable one. The modular design of the control logic is a start point for other designs too.
You can adapt the ADC/DAC design and control your own instrument with it. In it's current state, it can be turned into a programmable meter, signal generator, sampler.
With firmware adaption you can link the SCPI commands with your microcontroller's timers and use it as a PWM generator or a frequency counter.
With additional hardware you can buffer in-and outputs, create a programmable power supply, ...
Both PCB and firmware - although based on TI-RTOS for MSP432 and BoosterPack pinout, can be adapted. We've taken care that no license stops you from doing whatever you want and sources are attached.
