DAQ digitisation, waveform generation and fast digital I/O run under Linux

June 17, 2013 // By Julien Happich
The latest SBench 6 data acquisition software from Strategic Test is available for both Windows or Linux users. SBench continues to support all of the company's PCI Express, PCI, PXI and CompactPCI digitiser, waveform generator and high-speed digital I/O cards, some 300 variants in total.

The Base version of Sbench 6 is supplied at no-cost with each UltraFast card. In addition, a fully functional demonstration version of the Professional Version with a limited run time is also included. The software is also able to run simulated demonstrations cards to allow full software test even without hardware. For applications that require more features, the SBench 6 Professional version is available for €1190. Key features of the Professional version include fast data acquisition supporting RAID disc arrays, with the capability to acquire and handle GBytes of data.
The tool can display analogue data, digital data and frequency spectrum information. It has integrated analysis functions, an import and export filter, enhanced cursor functions, drag-and-drop technology and a thread-based program structure. The software is able to measure in oscilloscope mode as well as long time transient recording mode (streaming mode). A special feature of SBench 6 is the segmented view that allows display of segment based signals together with signals of a second timebase (ABA mode) as well as highly precise timestamps. Besides this SBench 6 data can be exported into ASCII, Wave and MATLAB.
