For software, I did this once in Excel actually, if you know or are willing to learn a little VBA it's not too hard since there's a built-in serial port reader component. This was for an electronic scale we had that measured weight to several more digits than the display would allow. Excel has the added benefit of being able to graph/visualize the data in realtime as the VBA serial reader populates the spreadsheet.
