Electronics Explorer Board

The Digilent Electronics Explorer board (EE board) includes all of the test and measurement equipment needed to design and test analog and digital circuits of all types.

Built around a large solderless breadboard, the EE board includes oscilloscopes, waveform generators, power supplies, voltmeters, reference voltage generators, 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 complete, 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, PC-based WaveForms™ software 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 lab/project reports can be completed using standard office tools, and submitted electronically.
