Moku:Lab, the all-in-one device for professional Test & Measurement in laboratories

Improve workflow by gaining access to eleven professional-grade instruments in one with Moku:Lab. Moku:Lab measures, records, and generates signals from DC to 200 MHz, it is a software-reconfigurable hardware platform that combines the signal processing power of an FPGA with high-speed analogue inputs and outputs to bring you a new level of flexibility in the lab, in the field, or on the production line.

Wirelessly configure and monitor your Lock-In’s performance from your iPad interface, with Python, MATLAB, or LabVIEW, and measure signals obscured by noise with more than 80 dB dynamic reserve. Moku:lab enables technicians, researchers, and students to interact with their experiment and stream data in real-time from anywhere in the lab. Ultimately, Moku:Lab enhances the whole test and measurement experience without compromising functionality and performance.

The Moku:Lab App contains everything you need to manage multiple instruments in one free download (Moku:Lab works with any Apple iPad with a Retina Display). You’ll be able to share or forward data in seconds using Dropbox, iCloud, or email. The App will also automatically alert you when new instruments are released in the future.

The all-in-one device currently integrates eleven professional-grade instruments, including:

1. PID Controller

Two independent PID controller channels enable you to rapidly combine signals and even adjust their offset at the system’s inputs and outputs. Moreover, the PID parameters can be changed in real-time, allowing you to see their effects in an interactive Bode plot as you change them.

2. Lock-in Amplifier

By extracting signals at up to 200 MHz, filtering with an adjustable corner frequency, and outputting signals with variable gain, the lock-in amplifier allows you to precisely configure your system and monitor the lock-in’s performance from an intuitive user interface.

3. Phasemeter

The high-sensitivity phasemeter presents a dynamic range that is capable of detecting a miniscule sub-cycle phase shift whilst the overall phase drifts by a large number of cycles. Based on a digital phase-locked loop architecture, the algorithm on the FPGA chip is the same as used on the LISA and LIGO gravitational wave experiments.

4. Bode Analyser

This instrument measures the magnitude and phase of a system’s transfer function using a swept sine output from 10 MHz to 120 MHz.

5. Oscilloscope

Moku:Lab’s multitouch user interface allows effortless adjustment of time and voltage levels. You can also synchronise the oscilloscope’s measurement cycle with an input waveform with the external TTL trigger.

6. Waveform Generator

You can selectively generate two independent waveforms including sine, square, triangle, or sawtooth waves. Both channels can be modulated in amplitude, phase or frequency to meet the needs of your experiment.

7. Spectrum Analyser

Moku:Lab’s FPGA provides the high-speed update rates required to resolve bandwidths as low as 1 Hz in a frequency range as high as 200 MHz. This allows you to track and measure multiple peaks on a single spectrum with high precision by dragging markers directly to the peaks required.

8. Data Logger

The integrated data logger provides you with a platform for recording large data sets to an SD card and reviewing them later on. You can also share measurement data with colleagues via Dropbox, iCloud, or email.

9. Arbitrary Waveform Generator

Choose between one of the pre-set waveforms, load points from a file, or input an equation directly. Configure pulsed output with up to 250,000 cycles of dead time between pulses. Phase-synchronised output between the two channels.

10. Digital Filter Box

Design your filter’s frequency response using the interactive Bode plot. Block Diagram view of the digital signal processing with built-in probe points for signal monitoring.

2 input channels, 2 output channels with optional blending for MIMO systems. Supports custom filter designs.

11. FIR Filter Builder

Design filters in the time domain or in the frequency domain, choosing from common impulse responses and window functions. Load your own filter coefficients or enter an equation to create a customised impulse response. Visualise the filter’s transfer function, impulse and step response, or group and phase delay. Easily save data and upload to the cloud.
