 ExpEYES

With learning science by exploration and experimenting in mind,ExpEYES is from the PHOENIX project of Inter-University Accelerator Centre, New Delhi. It is a hardware & software framework for developing science experiments, demonstrations and projects and learn science and engineering by exploration. Capable of doing real time measurements and analysing the data in  different ways. Analog  voltages, in +/- 5 volts range, are measured with 12 bit resolution (around 1.25 millivolts) and time intervals with one microsecond.

This  project is based on Free and Open Source software, mostly written in Python programming language. The hardware design is also open. A science laboratory at home becomes an affordable idea, with expEYES and the structured design supports adding more experiments without much effort.

The expEYES hardware is interfaced and powered by USB, having a size of 11 x 9 x 1.5 cm and weighs 150 gm. There are 32 terminals arranged in two rows where you can connect external signals, within +/-5 volts range, for control and measurement. It can function as a signal generator, frequency counter and low frequency oscilloscope .  The user manual documents about 50 experiments, that can be done using expEYES and the Standard Accessory set.
