DAPstudio measurement software aids in the development of data acquisition and control systems with real-time component or with a high channel count. A processor on every DAP board runs DAPL 2000, a 32-bit multitasking real-time operating system for PC-based data acquisition and control. This operating system is controlled locally or over a network through a Windows application such as Visual Basic, LabVIEW, or the company’s measurement software. In applications with many inputs or outputs, this software selects and deselects channels, sets all or some of them to certain values, applies gains selectively, and so on. When the user is finished with the relevant design tool, the measurement studio documents what has been done: as DAPL commands that configure the DAP to behave as intended at run-time.
