DAPL 3000 Operating System
Jul 29, 2010
DAPL 3000 Operating SystemThe DAPL 3000 Operating System supports the xDAP Data Acquisition Processor (DAP) series, and it will serve as the basis for device control and embedded processing in future data acquisition products. Like the DAPL 2000 system that preceded it, DAPL 3000 provides all of the device control functions necessary. The DAPL 3000 system takes care of all of the hardware specifics, moving them out of complicated host OS environments and putting them close to the hardware for maximum efficiency. On your host system, just specify the address of the Data Acquisition Processor nodes to connect. The DAPcell services establish links to access your data streams. The USB 2.0 support in DAPL 3000 can push sustained data transfers of 8 million 16-bit samples per second to the PC host - a sustained 128 million bits per second, about as much as current generations of PC systems can withstand. Use the DAPL system to apply appropriate conversion, compensation, and scaling operations so that factors related to your hardware components are already covered by the time data leaves your hardware system. Your application can then receive measurements as direct meaningful quantities. To support this, the DAPL 3000 system has been rewritten to expand its support for higher-precision data types.
