Phidgets are a set of "plug and play" building blocks for low cost USB sensing and control from your PC. All the USB complexity is taken care of by our robust API. Applications can be developed quickly in .NET, Visual Basic, VBA (Microsoft Access and Excel), LabView, Java, Delphi, C, C++ and Python.
The analog inputs are used to measure continuous voltage outputs generated by various sensors such as temperature, humidity, position, or pressure. Phidgets offers a wide variety of sensors that can be plugged directly into the board using the cable included with the sensor.
Sampling rates can be set at 1ms, 2ms, 4ms, 8ms and multiple of 8ms up to 1000ms.

The Digital Inputs have a Digital Input Hardware Filter to eliminate false triggering from electrical noise. They can be used to convey the state of devices such as push buttons, limit switches, relays, and logic levels.
The Digital Outputs can be used to drive LEDs, solid state relays, transistors; in fact, anything that will accept a CMOS signal.
