Data acquisition system

  • 24-May-2010 04:44 EDT

The DAPL 3000 operating system from Microstar Laboratories supports the xDAP data acquisition processor series that serves as the basis for device control and embedded processing in future data acquisition products. The system provides the control functions that are required to move devices out of complicated host OS environments and put them close to the hardware for maximum efficiency. On the host system, the user specifies the address of the data acquisition processor nodes to connect. The DAPcell services establish links to access the 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. A reserve of capacity remaining in the onboard processors following critical device control processing can be used for other processing tasks.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
