Analog Devices And MathWorks Collaborate To Offer Engineering Students Portable, Hands-On, Low-Cost Learning Platform

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI: NASDAQ) today announced the availability of a low-cost hardware-software solution focusing on circuit testing designed for the engineering education market. This offering combines MATLAB software and Analog Devices’ Digilent Analog Discovery Design kits, enabling students to experiment quickly and easily with advanced technologies and build, test and analyze real-world, functional analog design circuits anytime – anywhere – for the price of a textbook. The Analog Discovery Design Kit costs $99 USD. Students can access MATLAB by purchasing a MATLAB Student Version license or through a site license that may be available from their university.

“The combination of MATLAB and the Analog Devices’ Digilent design kits provides a very flexible, powerful learning solution,” said Kathleen Meehan, Associate Professor in the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Virginia Tech. “I don’t need to maintain a traditional large lab for my engineering students. Instead, students complete experiments after class, where and when they want with the analog design kit and analyze the data and write lab reports with MATLAB.”

MATLAB and ADI Analog Discovery Integration

MATLAB and the Data Acquisition Toolbox Support Package for Analog Discovery hardware allow students to acquire signals directly from the Analog Discovery as well as filter and analyze data. This integration allows students to develop a deeper understanding of the circuits they are building and reinforces MATLAB skills they are already learning in other classes. Each Analog Discovery is the size of a deck of cards, portable and features two oscilloscopes, two waveform generators, two power supplies and a logic analyzer. The Analog Discovery is manufactured by Digilent, Inc., and powered by Analog Devices components.
