View Cart

The Open SciCal X101 is a modern, fully-open source take on the classical scientific calculator, fully capable of running and displaying statistical analyses in the palm of your hand.

The Linux-powered Open SciCal X101 combines the mobile processing capability of the 720 MHz ARM-based BeagleBoard with a BeagleJuice battery and the 4.3” BeagleTouch touchscreen, and is pre-loaded with the R open source statistical programming language.

Unlike classical scientific calculators, the Open SciCal is hardware hackable, providing pin connections to interface directly with specialized sensors and equipment, making it ideal for field data logging or scientific sensor data collection with on-the-fly data processing.

The Open SciCal X101 comes in different three configurations: base, standard, and enhanced, with additional components suitable for a variety of applications.
