DSP Based Lock-In Amplifier
Lock-In Amplifiers have been around since the 1940's. While not as widely used today as in the 1970's and
80's it is still a useful technique. We have designed a modular software and hardware lock-in amplifier that
allows for quick hardware and software customization and experimentation.
In addition to using classic lock-in techniques, this project can borrow on modern Software Defined Radio
techniques to extend the range of experiments.
