Strategic Test Debuts LabVIEW driver for UltraFast PCI Boards

Strategic Test Corp has announced the availability of a LabVIEW driver for their UltraFast range of Digitizer, Arbitrary Waveform Generator and high-speed Digital I/O PCI cards. The driver supports all of the card’s features including the ability to stream signal data at up to 200 MBytes per second enabling long signals to be recorded or generated at high-speed.

The LabVIEW driver is based on the standard UltraFast Windows driver and thus automatically will benefit from new features added through future Windows driver updates. The driver consists of a set of LabVIEW libraries and a special DLL that is optimized for fast and easy data management.

New LabVIEW drivers for UltraFast Digitizer and Waveform Generator PCI boardsTo encourage rapid application development, a wide range of examples is also provided each showing different operational modes of the cards. These include a soft scope, long term data acquisition, an online signal generator and an example that demonstrates the addressing of up to 4 GByte on-board card memory.

The special data handling DLL provided with the LabVIEW driver makes data access very easy. Data can be read out as raw data, sorted and normalized as 16-bit integer or even completely recalculated to voltage values.

The UltraFast LabVIEW driver is available immediately and priced at $390. It is compatible with all LabVIEW versions from 6.1 and later.
