Please make Linux version

Recommended Posts

I would like to see a Linux version of DAQFactory. With the development of the Raspberry Pi computer and certainly more to follow based on ARM processors, the reality of cheap, portable automation and DAQ systems is possible. I am imagining a system of a Raspberry Pi or Android board, a small touchscreen display and an Arduino or other I/O board. A complete system with the application and operating system on an SD card for $200.00! Embedded systems for machines, DAQ for anything. Affordable by students and inventors. I can see an 8 year old building a robot or a GPS tracker for his dog with this or me setting up an engine control unit for IC engine R&D without having to fight for a $5000 laptop running Windows and Labview. This is the future, PLCs don't need a computer, just add a slice of pi.
