The DAPtools for Python API module from Microstar Laboratories extends capabilities previously accessible in C, C++, C#, Basic, and other programming environments, so that data acquisition applications operating under strict time constrains can be developed using the Python language.
It is supplied as part of the DAPtools Basic Software that is provided with each DAP or xDAP data acquisition systems.
API extension enables data acquisition applications written using Python programming language. This is not a reduced or specialized language variant — it supports the complete, full-featured Python environment.
Typical applications would be ad hoc quick tests, or configurable scripting for test automation not bound to specific large application platforms.
DAPtools for Python works with the DAPL 2000 system and DAP boards for PCI and PCI-X host systems, and also with the DAPL 3000 system and the xDAP data acquisition engines, on host systems operating Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP, or Windows.
This combines the best of both worlds, the regularity and precision of DAP systems, with the software flexibility of the Python environment.
