Abstract

Many present day research facilities use data acquisition systems to collect data for experiments. However, data acquisition systems are difficult to find and get outdated frequently, resulting into high expenses. Our objective is to design a website for these systems to make them more readily available to the public. We used many different programming languages including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP to design the website. It allows the consumer to find many different components of the systems, such as the amount of memory or type of memory needed, and also specifics about the price. Our website is still in progress. We added a library for the website to view the systems and added a section where a person can request their device’s specific needs. I’m also currently adding a model viewer so consumers can see how the object works by the use of squares that are generated, demonstrating how the data acquisition systems work. As a result, while we haven’t finished coding the website to work perfectly, we created a website that functions for our set task, to develop a way to make Data Acquisition Systems more readily available for everyone.
