Computer Interfacing Resources
Below are listed some companies that you might want to consider when designing
computer or calculator-interfaced experiments. Often, the hardware and
the software you will need will come as a package or in obviously related
products. It would be very difficult for us to list all of the products
that these companies offer; your best bet would be to look at their on-line
catalogs, to which we provide hyperlinks.
