Current off-the-shelf Windows-based software/hardware data acquisition and control (DAC) systems are relatively slow, inflexible, and incapable of driving high speed, multi-channel systems. The proposed product will advance this technology through the development of an innovative, Windows-based Graphic User Interface (GUI) and required PC-resident module interfaced with a VXI chassis containing signal conversion/conditioning and interface electronics to provide a universal, Windows-based, flexible plug-and-play integrated hardware/software solution. Development of this product will be accomplished through the performance of the following tasks: identify critical hardware and software requirements, survey existing hardware technologies to meet the identified requirements, acquire and integrate necessary hardware, design and develop a flexible, high-speed GUI software architecture and associated code; integrate the developed software with identified hardware to achieve finite, measurable data acquisition sampling and control rates; perform software/hardware integration and system-level testing; and, deliver the tested Phase I Work Plan for implementing the complete data acquisition and control system and the Phase I data acquisition and control GUI system.
