RESEARCHERS and engineers who analyse and report measurement data can now save time by using the latest version of DIAdem, according to National Instruments.
DIAdem has been used for several years in the research, test, and the design validation areas of a number of industries including automotive, household appliances, and aerospace. NI says that DIAdem 8.0 software has improved connectivity to industry-standard file formats, including LabVIEW, has new report generation features, and standard reports and charts can now be automated.
Users can employ a standard Windows desktop or laptop computer to quickly begin analysing measurement data.
The new software imports ASCII, Microsoft Excel and NI LabVIEW data files as well as data stored in databases. Users can import files up to 2GB into NI DIAdem and analyse them using built-in technical and mathematical tools, such as signal analysis, statistics, and curve-fitting functions.
After analysing their data, research and design engineers can use the software to create technically focused graphs and charts, which can then be integrated into complete reports. Also they can automate standard tasks needed to create frequently used reports and charts using Microsoft Visual Basic Script, which is tightly integrated in DIAdem.
The software can interactively work with measurement data and compare test results of every step in the product development cycle. National Instruments Australia (03) 9879 5166.
