MakerPlot has been called
Graphical Data Acquisition and Control for your Microcontroller and Imagination
due to the powerful interactions available between the micro's firmware and the PC software.
With dozens of meters, buttons, switches and text boxes you have full control of the screen interface design and how information is displayed, plotted, logged to files, printed and more.
Your microcontroller also has the ability to read information directly from the interfaces for interactive measurement, plotting and control.
The ability to design a customized GUI interface for monitoring your data combined with the ability to program your microcontroller to interface directly and simply with the GUI is a powerful combination for a developer.
We named it
for those “Makers” desiring to create simple yet powerful interfaces for their projects and products, either for monitoring data and/or with control actions that affect the GUI and a user's experience with it.
But there’s much more to
