DT Measure Foundry: Innovations Across the Board
DT Measure Foundry’s breakthrough aspect-oriented programming lets programmers and non-programmers alike build test and measurement applications by simply using a drag-and-drop approach. Without the need for specialized programming skills or physical wiring, users arrange whatever instrument functions they wish to test on a desktop. They then activate these functions by selecting the desired hardware measurement source.
Windows’® latencies are also minimized using a patent-pending approach allowing for high-speed uninterrupted data transfer. DT Measure Foundry supports all of Data Translation’s PCI and USB hardware functions.
Accessing vision and sensor data into measurement applications has been an unrealized goal in the test and measurement industry and DT Measure Foundry delivers on that promise. DT Measure Foundry integrates with DT Vision FoundryO, Data Translation’s machine vision software package, to correlate vision and sensor data into measurement applications This advanced capability lets applications that must measure both vision and sensor data perform measurement tasks using the same user interface.
