Dear BIOMCH-L Readers,

We are investigating the best way to set up a computerised data
acquisition system for analogue data such as EMG, force transducers,
potentiometers and so forth. One way would be to purchase a
suitable A/D card and write appropriate software ourselves. Or we
could purchase a commercially-available system.

With respect to our interests, we would like to get the feedback
of some of our more experienced colleagues regarding two questions:

1. We have some experience with Data Translation products, specific-
ally the DT2801 A/D board. What are other laboratories employing,
ie are there other alternatives and what are the pros and cons of
these boards?

2. As far as commercially-available products for analogue data ac-
quisition are concerned, what are the available products being
used in laboratories and, if possible, whom can we contact to
obtain more information?

Thank you for your consideration. As usual, should we receive any
responses which might benefit others, we will be happy to post a
summary.
