I'm using an Arduino to control an experimental setup and read analogue signals from some sensors. But there are other sensors for which I need a DAQ for. I have a National Instrument USB-6259. On my PC I use LabView or NI SignalExpress to read data from DAQ connected via USB. Considering that I want the read data from different sensors to be synced, I was wondering if I could somehow read the DAQ directly on the Arduino?
Some other points:
- I also have Arduino Ethernet Shield, if required.
- The final goal is to have logged data synced so out of the box solutions are also acceptable for me.
- If I'm not mistaken there are some versions of Arduino which you can install Linux on, just like a Rasppbery pi. There are even OSes for normal Arduino boards. There is a Low Cost USB DAQ Driver for use with Raspberry Pi for NI USB-6008/6009 devices. Is it possible to install this driver on Arduino?
- I prefer not use a Raspberry pi because analogue/PWM read and write there is not as straight forward. So if there are other boards which are as easy as an Arduino with an OS compatible with current driver please suggest.
