The Digilent Electronics Explorer board (EE board) includes all of the test and measurement equipment needed to design, build, and test analog and digital circuits of all types. Built around a large solderless breadboard, the EE board includes a 4-channel mixed-signal USB oscilloscope, waveform generator, variable power supply, voltmeter, reference voltage generator, and thirty-two digital signals that can be configured as a logic analyzer, pattern generator, or any one of several static digital I/O devices. All of these instruments can be connected to circuits built on the solderless breadboards using simple jumper wires.
Designed for daily use and intended for every student to own, the EE board combines everything needed to design and test circuits in a single all-in-one device. Even in introductory classes, students can build, test, and analyze real circuit designs as a part of every homework assignment. No more once a week labs; now every student can complete designs in virtually any setting - any residence can be a complete, 24-hour design studio!
The EE board is powered by the free, WaveForms software (now Windows, Mac, and Linux compatible) that makes it easy to acquire, store, analyze, produce, and reuse analog and digital signals. WaveForms runs well on virtually any notebook PC, including low-cost Netbooks. A high-speed USB2 connection ensures all EE board instruments respond in near real-time.
WaveForms data files are stored using standard formats, making it easy to share data between instruments, and to export data to word processors or graphics editors. This means well documented student labs/project reports can be completed using standard office tools, and submitted electronically.
The EE board ships with a power supply, a USB cable, and the Starter Parts Kit. This kit contains an assortment of analog parts so you can start building and testing circuits right out of the box.
