Agilent Technologies has announced Acqiris Software Release 4.0, including support for the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7, for its Acqiris Digitizers. The software is available on CD-ROM, or online.
Agilent Acqiris high-speed digitizers are supplied with software drivers for Windows, Linux, LabVIEW RT and VxWorks operating systems; and application code examples for MATLAB(r), C/C++, VisualBasic.NET, LabVIEW(1), and LabWindows/CVI where available. These code examples provide card setup and basic acquisition functionality, and are easily modified, so that the card can quickly be integrated into a measurement system. The flexibility of the driver means that, with minimum software adjustments, any Acqiris digitizer can be swapped out, replaced, and upgraded over time with the latest Acqiris digitizer technology.
The Acqiris high-speed digitizers provide a range of 500 MS/s, 1 GS/s, 2 GS/s, 4 GS/s and 8 GS/s digitizer cards with 8-, 10- and 12-bit resolution, wide bandwidths, and large acquisition memories. These products, in PCI, PXI, cPCI, and VME formats, are used in research, ATE, and OEM applications in industries as widespread as biotechnology, semiconductors, aerospace, physics, and astronomy.
In addition to Windows 7, Acqiris Software Release 4.0 supports the following Windows 64-bit operating systems: XP64 and Vista64. 64-bit Linux (with kernel versions 2.6 and later) is also supported. As a result, users can port code developed in 32-bit environments to the latest operating systems, or develop new applications to take full advantage of the extended resources available, such as acquiring and processing more data within the system.
