Subject: $59 12-bit A/D for the PC

Following the publication of my article "LPT:Analog! - A 12-bit A/D
Converter Printer Port Adapter" (Circuit Cellar Ink, Issue 67,
February 1996, 26-33), I received many inquiries regarding the
commercial availability of the device.

I am happy to announce that ADNAV Electronics has introduced the
LPT:Analog! v2.0, a 12-bit Analog-to-Digital adapter for the PC
parallel printer port which sells for US $59.

This adapter is a very simple and convenient interface for acquiring
analog signals directly on a PC at rates of up to 7,500 samples per
second. Signal conditioning information is supplied, making it easy to
collect data from analog-output instruments, sensors, 4-20 mA loops
and many other analog signal sources.

Power for LPT:Analog! v2.0 is derived directly from the PC's printer
port. The micropower design of the adapter's internal circuitry
ensures that it can be used with virtually any desktop, laptop or
notebook PC on the market. This, in conjunction with its small size
(a shielded case measuring 2" x 2.4" x 0.7"), makes LPT:Analog! v2.0
ideal for PC-based data acquisition applications that require ultimate
portability and flexibility.

LPT:Analog! v2.0 is supplied with software utilities that enable
real-time display of acquired waveforms, ASCII-format data logging to
disk, as well as high-resolution spectral analysis of acquired data.
The source code (QBasic, C and assembly) for these utilities is
included at no extra cost. In addition, software drivers, VisualBasic
DLLs and programming examples are also provided.
