Android-Based Tablets Gain USB DAQ Support

August 31, 2012. Measurement Computing has announced the release of USB DAQ device support for Android-based tablets. The Android OS is supported through DAQFlex, a simple and efficient message-based programming interface. The DAQFlex for Android API and sample programs are included with select MCC DAQ devices priced from $99. The Android API provides programmers a method of communicating with these devices without the need for understanding USB communication mechanisms.

Unlike DAQ devices that interface to the computer via low-level commands, DAQFlex devices interface with simple text messages. In addition to Android, DAQFlex also includes out-of-the box support for Windows, Linux, and OS X.
