PRUDAQ - 40MSPS DAQ BeagleBone Bundle
Mfr. Part #
Product Description

PRUDAQ is a fully open source 40MSPS Data Acquisition (DAQ) cape for the BeagleBone Black or Green designed by Jason Holt and his team at Google Research with a software collaboration from the BeagleLogic creator, Kumar Abhishek. For those who may not have all of the pieces in place to get started with PRUDAQ, we created this special starter bundle to quickly get sampling with. Please note that this is not an OFFICIAL Google product.

Definitely visit Google's comprehensive PRUDAQ Wiki to get the full specifications and development guidance. Our PRUDAQ page also has more information and will continue to be updated. If you haven't seen the Google Research blog post by Jason Holt about the inspiration behind this board, we highly recommend it.

    We had to reduce the max from 50 to 15 because we recently learned that there was a limit to how many USB drives and memory cards that we could order per day and we wanted to be able to ship promptly. We'll look for a workaround for the next round. Sorry for any inconvenience.
