Abstract—Physics and engineering combine various subjects
and disciplines into one single umbrella. Technology and
computer engineers working in electronic instrumentation aim
at making measurements quickly, and accurately using skills
and knowledge that they mainly acquired at university by
means of hands-on lab experiments. Teaching undergraduate
students about (1) computer interfacing, and (2) instrument
control techniques for collecting and processing data to
automate processes are subjects that seldom appear in their
curriculum. A computational software package that allows
rapid prototyping is MATLAB. In this paper, therefore, we
describe a graphical user interface (GUI) developed for
controlling commonly available undergraduate lab electronic
test instruments. In addition, we move towards the digital signal
processing, providing a teaching lesson for biomedical
