In this study, a multipurpose computer interface unit is designed for existing regular experiment sets of electrical and electronics laboratories which includes embedded two channels digital storage oscilloscope, multimeters, digital inputs and outputs, miscellaneous function generators, a variable and some fixed power supplies in order to experiment in a more comprehensive manner without any need of external measurement devices or signal supplies. All studies and observations including the lecture notes, experiment instructions, calculations and graphical reports are computer assisted by the use of interface software which also gives the opportunity to the instructor computer to track and control the student computers over the network. This paper includes the observation of the related studies and final results in detail. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved
