Hands-on learning module

23 October 2019 Test & Measurement

The ADALM2000 (M2K) active learning module is an affordable, USB-powered, software-defined instrument that exceeds the capabilities of its predecessor ADALM1000 (M1K).

With 12-bit ADCs (analog-to-digital converters) and DACs (digital-to-analog converters running at 100 MSps, this Analog Devices product brings the power of high-performance lab equipment to the palm of your hand, enabling electrical engineering students and hobbyists to explore signals and systems up to tens of megahertz without the cost and bulk associated with traditional lab gear. The M2K, working with open-source Scopy graphical application software, provides the user with many high-performance instrumentation options.

The ADALM2000 works as a portable lab that, when used with a host PC, can augment classroom learning. Analog Devices’ Scopy software package supports the ADALM2000 and provides an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) so students can learn faster, work smarter, and explore more. Built on open-source technology, Scopy can be examined and extended by anyone.

The ADALM2000 was designed for university students and self-learners interested in more advanced circuit and electronics classes. Teachers can leverage a catalogue of lessons and labs to create and support their own coursework.
