Open Solutions in Research and Education
An overview of the open source data acquisition library libmeas [ https://sourceforge.net/projects/libmeas/] developed in my group is presented with a focus on its research applications and student training. The presentation gives examples of successful device driver implementations on Linux, their applications in research, and discusses the general challenges in writing open source software. Training in this field provides students good employment prospects as many commercial data acquisition applications employ similar open source tool set.
