Contrary to digitizers currently used seismic data acquisition using PC-104 or industrial personal computers have been able to produce a more affordable digitizer (i.e. an analog to digital converter) which is proven to be able to overcome issues such as portability, efficiency and durability.
PC104 which was used in the study was Arbor production with Emcore n511 serial number within the operating system and the programming languages were DOS 6.02 and C respectively.
This research resulted in the design of a prototype device which was based on PC104 and it created a program to record seismic data.
The program was compiled using Microsoft's Windows XP operating system using Borland C 5.02 software.
The input range of the data acquisition system that was tested is ± 10V.
The performance test results showed a resolution of ±0.915 mV, a linearity of 0.2% full-scale reading, instrument work noise was ±1.2 mV with a maximum frequency distortion of 2%.
The instrument performed well at a rate of between 10 Hz to 5000 Hz. but the software had a limited capacity of only 1000 Hz. From the results of a comparative tests with Digitizer Güralp Type CGM-DM16R8, the value of the RMS error was 4.64%.

Documenting Visual Quality Controls on the Evaluation of Petroleum Reservoir-Rocks Through Ontology
By Felipe Ingletto Victoreti The understanding of these controls is essential for the construction of models for the systematic characterization and prediction of the quality (porosity, permeability) of petroleum reservoirs during their exploration and production. The description and documentation of key petrographic features is an important tool for the evaluation of reservoir quality that try to minimize the uncertainty associated to visual recognition of the features.

Tackling Complex Reservoirs Through Systematic Petrographic Characterization
By Luiz Fernando De Ros Despite the spectacular advances in seismic and log acquisition and interpretation, and in 3D and 4D modeling, the risks involved in the exploration of new, deeper, depositional, tectonic or diagenetically-complex prospects remain large. This, essentially because these sophisticated methods simply lack information on an essential part of petroleum systems: the reservoir. Most new prospects represent clastic or carbonate rocks with strong diagenesis. [READ FULL ARTICLE]
Data Acquisition Systems: Analog to Digital
By Jamie Doyle Data acquisition and data acquisition systems (known as DAS) take analog waveforms, collected by specific sensors that generate electrical signals into digital data for processing. Most of the computers that we think about today are strictly digital but the first computers in last century were analog, so most of us are unfamiliar with taking analog waveforms in any form. (Think about the change in taking one's temperature - from the mercury filled glass stick that you stuck under your tongue to the digital ear probe; from analog measurement to a digital method.)
