About the Sound and Vibration Measurement Hat for Raspberry Pi

Digilent logoThe Sound and Vibration Measurement Hat for Raspberry Pi (MCC 172 IEPE Measurement DAQ HAT) features two channels for making sound and vibration measurements from IEPE sensors like accelerometers and microphones. It features a 24-bit A/D per channel and a maximum sample rate of 51.2 kS/s/ch. Up to eight MCC HATs can be stacked onto one Raspberry Pi.

All DAQ HATs include C/C++® and PythonTm examples and open-source library. Comprehensive API and hardware documentation are also provided.

There are five devices in the MCC DAQ HAT Series. Models are available with voltage inputs, thermocouple inputs, IEPE-based sensor inputs, analog outputs, and digital I/O allowing users to configure multifunction, Raspberry Pi-based data logger solutions.

  • Two IEPE inputs
  • Two 24-bit, 51.2 kS/s A/D converters (one per channel)
  • AC coupled at ±5 V
  • 10-32 and screw terminal connections for OEM support
  • Synchronous ADC conversions between multiple boards
  • Onboard sample buffers allow high-speed acquisition
  • External digital trigger input
