Data Acquisition Processors
DAPL is a software system running on each Data Acquisition Processor board, supporting all acquisition, transfer, and configuration control functions. It does this consistently by enforcing a stable, uniform software architecture.
Consistent hardware and software architecture means maintainable applications with an extended product lifetime. No convoluted function sets are needed to configure your processing. DAPL configuration scripts work with any software, with any Data Acquisition Processor model, making your application device-independent. Hold down costs for high channel count applications. DAPL supports many channels per board, multiple boards per system.
The DAPL system is available in two editions: DAPL 2000 for the a-series PCI interface DAP boards, and DAPL 3000 for the USB interface xDAP boards.
The DAPL system and the ACCEL drivers join forces to stream data between Data Acquisition Processor and host, with buffering and device control fully automatic. A library of over 100 pre-defined commands makes configuration of onboard processing easy. Full support of task-to-task, board-to-host and process control communications.
High-end applications can apply the onboard processing power of a Data Acquisition Processor, using pre-defined DAPL commands or your own optimized extensions. Automatic DAPL multitasking allows independent processing for independent concerns, yielding simpler applications. Data Acquisition Processor speed and consistent timing can support real-time processing.
