The purpose of this project is to design and build a low cost, portable USB data logger for electrical engineering labs. This data logger connects to any computer through a USB port and appears as a keyboard to the host’s operating system. The logger performs electrical measurements and records the data by emulating keyboard strokes inside any spreadsheet program or analysis tool without the need for software or ancillary hardware. The logger is capable of measuring voltage and current. The end result of this project is to create a low cost, easy to use solution for data collection that can be replicated by other students.
