Title: Device and method for acquisition and transfer of signals
Description: An adapter device and method is presented for acquisition and transfer of signals from a host device 11 that has no built-in external communication capability, i.e. no communication ports. In one embodiment the adapter device 10 includes an acquisition module 1 configured to acquire data signals from the host device; and a transfer module 5, which is communicably connected to the acquisition module, configured to transfer said acquired data signals to an external device 12. The adapter device may include a processor 4 and voltage level shifter 3. The adapter device may be connected in the signalling path of an LCD display in the host device so that it can sniff, interpret (if necessary) and transmit the data being sent by the host device to its LCD screen to an external device. The embodiment described is the modification of a weighing/kitchen scale, with no in-built means of communicating externally, so that an adapter device is connected internally to its LCD screen circuitry such that the adapter device can sniff and send out measurements taken by the scale to an external device, such as a connected smart-phone. The adapter may communicate G using a wired connection or wirelessly, e.g. Bluetooth, to the external device. An wireless adapter/retro-fit kit is also described.
