DAQ on a Stick signal solutions are snap in USB sticks that interface strain, temperature or pressure sensors into Renesas’ ultra-low power, precision analog products and are then linearized by our industry leading microcontrollers. The complete solution, USB plug in, hardware and software, is ready to go, simply plug, click and start collecting data.

The reference designs incorporate low power multiplexers, precision instrumentation amplifiers, 24-bit Delta-Sigma ADCs, and a precision digital potentiometer to calibrate the system. The RL78 industry standard microcontroller runs the sticks and interfaces the sensor data into any USB port.
