Inputs and Outputs
With DC-coupled, low noise analog inputs and outputs (2 channels of each), you can measure and generate signals from a single device.
Analog inputs: Moku:Lab's DC to 200 MHz inputs can be switched between 50 Ω/1 MΩ and AC/DC coupling. For optimising dynamic range, the 500 MS/s 12-bit ADCs are coupled to an analog front end featuring two gain ranges (± 5 V and ±0.5 V) switchable via the iPad.
Analog outputs: Moku:Lab outputs can drive a 50 Ω load with 2 Vpp at frequencies up to 200 MHz. The 16-bit DACs coupled with custom-designed output conditioning produce extremely precise signals.
Made for iPad
The iPad is the perfect partner for Moku:Lab. The slot in the top of Moku:Lab provides a solid stand for your iPad. The slot is also a great place to leave your lab's iPad at the end of the day so you always know where to find it when you return.
Moku:Lab's back panel has a full-sized USB port just for charging your device, so it will be juiced up when you need it.
Minimum requirements: iPad, iPad Air or iPad mini 2 running iOS 8 or later.
Wi-Fi: Moku:Lab was designed with modern networking technologies in mind. High-speed Wi-Fi lets you interact with your experiment as you move around the lab.
No Wi-Fi in your lab? The Moku:Lab can host its own Wi-Fi network for the iPad to connect to.
Ethernet: For labs where Wi-Fi is not allowed, Moku:Lab has Ethernet and even an airplane mode that turns off its radio hardware.
SD storage: Moku:Lab comes with an 8 GB SD card and with the included Moku:DataLogger instrument you can perform unsupervised, reliable data logging. Set up an overnight measurement run and the data will be retrieved once you reconnect.
Precision and Speed
With an internal ultra-stable oscillator and a 10 MHz input and output for synchronisation, Moku:Lab provides the timing precision needed for professional scientific measurements.
Moku:Lab features low latency throughput (sub-microsecond input to output delay), a critical factor for closed-loop control applications.
Take control of your experiment with the new Moku:Lab iPad App. It’s mission control for all of your Moku instruments.
The App is free and demo mode works without any Moku:Lab hardware. Get it now on the App Store.
Switch between instruments on a single Moku – or even different Mokus – in a matter of seconds. Moku:Lab comes with 12 professional-grade instruments: Oscilloscope, Waveform Generator, Spectrum Analyzer, Phasemeter, Data Logger, Lock-in Amplifier, PID Controller, Bode Analyzer, Digital Filter Box, Arbitrary Waveform Generator, FIR Filter Builder, and Laser Lock Box. Liquid Instuments are making new instruments all the time.
Breakthrough User Interface
Each Moku instrument features a brand new multi-touch user interface, thoughtfully designed and meticulously optimised for iPad.
Freedom in the Lab
With a high-speed wireless connection, your measurements come to you. Stream data and control your experiment in real time as you move around the lab.
No more squinting at screens across the lab or asking your lab buddy "Can you turn up the scale of channel 2?" Your experiment's display and controls are always at your side.
Share your Data
Connect to Dropbox, iCloud or email to instantly save your data or share your breakthrough with colleagues and frenemies.
Moku:Lab can save an image of your screen or export your data in CSV or MAT formats.
Is there a particular file format you need? Let us know! We'd love to hear from you.
Built for Speed
Moku:Lab for iPad features full OpenGL ES graphics acceleration fed by a low-latency, streaming network architecture. This gives you a smooth display with high frame rates so that you don't miss anything important.
Lights on. Lights off.
Moku:Lab’s user interface is optimised for both bright and dark environments.
Save your State
Moku:Lab can save your instrument settings, like the scales, measurements, cursors and input impedance. Reloading your state helps to ensure that you take measurements under a consistent set of conditions.
Moku:Lab automatically saves your state when you switch instruments, so you can pick up right where you left off.
As new capabilities become available, you can update your Moku:Lab hardware simply by updating your iPad App from the App Store. No fuss.
About Liquid Instruments - Creator of Moku:Lab
Liquid Instruments was founded by Prof. Daniel Shaddock, Department of Quantum Science, Australian National University. Prof. Shaddock was recently elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society for pioneering development of precision optical interferometry in space, particularly for the detection of gravitational waves and for mapping the gravitational field of the earth.
The expert team at Liquid Instruments have backgrounds in laser interferometry, precision metrology, data science, software design, and engineering, with previous experience at NASA and many other research institutions. With this in mind, you can be assured that all of the instruments are nothing less than professional-grade.
