Data acquisition from your smartphone!
A new Bluetooth™ data acquisition device from Measurement Computing Corporation (Norton, Mass.) has been released through UK distributor Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts.). The BTH-1208LS is designed for the growing tablet and smartphone market. It offers multifunction operation, Android™ and Windows® device driver support and Bluetooth connectivity, and is powered by rechargeable batteries.

The device offers both Bluetooth and USB connections and can sample at up to 1 kS/s in Bluetooth mode and up to 50 kS/s in USB mode. For OEM and embedded designs, the BTH-1208LS-OEM is a board-only version which requires user-supplied power.
