Now that the piggyback is no longer available from NLSA (Nova) for
the Labjack what is available that uses a USB interface?
It's very easy to build your own "piggback" adapter. The SatPC32 web
site shows how easy it is to build your own:

By the way, the new Labjack U3 is $30 cheaper than the now-discontinued
U12. The latest version of SatPC32 supports the U3.
