Company Information

Scientific Solutions Celebrating 30 years of "Solving Problems for Problem Solvers"®

Scientific Solutions Inc. was formed in 1974 to design, manufacture, market and support high-end data acquisition and process control products. These products are used for laboratory testing, industrial automation, advanced medical research, health and nutritional products, product development, production testing, quality assurance, and university teaching and research.

Early Scientific Solutions products were used with minicomputers and included analog acquisition, digital I/O and high speed counter/timers. With the introduction of the Hewlett Packard General Purpose Interface Bus in 1975 (GPIB, now the IEEE 488 standard), Scientific Solutions' introduced a number of GBIB interfaces.  With the advent of microcomputers, Scientific Solutions started making data acquisition products for these systems including S-100 based systems and early apple systems.  Scientific Solutions original LabMaster data acquisition system was created for S-100 microcomputers.

In 1981, IBM introduced the original IBM PC, and concurrent with IBM's announcement Scientific Solutions introduced a family of data acquisition and control products for this new platform.  Scientific Solutions created the PC based data acquisition market in 1981 by introducing the worlds first data acquisition and control products for the IBM PC, and is considered a pioneer in the PC based data acquisition industry.  In fact these products were also the world's first add-on cards of any type for the PC.  In recognition of this pioneering contribution to the PC based data acquisition industry, Scientific Solutions was awarded "Best In Test" and "Product of the Decade 1981-1991" in 1991 by Test & Measurement World, and again recognized in the 2001 (20th anniversary) issue.

Throughout the years, the company has introduced many features and technologies including software programmable gain amplifiers, high resolution counters/timers, virtual channel/gain array sequencers, analog multiplexing, unipolar/bipolar & SE/DI analog inputs, installable data acquisition device drivers, and acquisition software development kits. As a result of these contributions, Scientific Solutions has received numerous industry and design awards and holds a number of US and international trademarks, copyrights and patents.
