Data Translation Introduces Active X Control Real Time Streaming Software

11/12/2004 - Data Translation announces DTx-EZ/RT-Streaming (DT-XS) software for its award winning DT9840 Series of DSP data acquisition hardware. DTx-EZ/RT-Streaming (DT-XS) allows users of our powerful high-performance DSP hardware to develop real-time test and measurement applications rapidly using the latest visual programming languages.

“This new software allows powerful DSP based measurement systems to be used right out of the box,” states Fred Molinari, President and CEO. “Applications that formerly took weeks and months of painstaking programming, can now be up and running in the same day.”

DTx-EZ/RT-Streaming (DT-XS) and the 32-bit Active X controls allow the user to quickly develop applications for any DT9840 series DSP module using visual programming languages such as Visual Basic®, Visual Basic.NET, Visual C++®, Visual C++®.NET and Visual C#®.NET. ActiveX controls are visual objects, based on the standard Component Object Model (COM) from Microsoft that simplifies the process of writing code. Active X controls have been integrated into popular software packages to easily expand the package capabilities and scope. Use the data acquisition ActiveX control to stream data to and from any DT9840 Series DSP module in real-time. The DT Plot ActiveX control allows the user to graph data in real-time. In addition, arbitrary waveforms can be generated from any DT9840 Series module.

Data Acquisition is simplified by the automatic configuration of the analog I/O, digital I/O, and counter/timer operations of the DT9840 Series of boards using the ActiveX controls found on the host. DTx-EZ/RT-Streaming (DT-XS) eliminates the need for costly add-on programs like TI Code Composer Studio. Extensive example programs included in the software enable the user to measure real-time signals immediately.

Data Translation’s DT9840 series DSP data acquisition hardware provides a complete data acquisition solution for real-time signal capture and processing external from the PC. The series is designed around the TMS32OC67x DSP processor from Texas Instruments with up to 128Mbytes of RAM and 2 Mbytes of Flash and communicates to the host PC via the high speed USB 2.0 interface. Eight separate 24-bit A/D converters provide outstanding signal to noise ratio of 110dB and the board provides simultaneous operation of 8 analog input channels, 2 or 8 analog output channels, 24 digital I/O lines, 3 32-bit counter/timers and sampling rates up to 100 kHz/channel are standard features.

DT9840 Series series hardware is shipping and the DTx-EZ/RT-Streaming (DT-XS) software, priced at $2495, is also available immediately.
