Microstar Laboratories, Inc. has announced the release of the xDAP 7410 data acquisition subsystem. xDAP 7410 is LVD tested and fully CE compliant, making it suitable for worldwide applications, including in the European Union. It is also compatible with both North American and European power standards, requiring no switching or reconfiguration. The subsystem and provides high-rate, high-quality multi-channel data capture for PC-based data acquisition applications. It includes eight parallel 16-bit analog-to-digital converter channels, clocked simultaneously and running at configurable rates of up to one million samples per second. For host applications that are not able to keep pace with a sustained 16 million bytes per second of data transfers across the USB interface, there is enough local buffer memory to record a full minute of activity without any concurrent transfers. xDAP 7410 features an embedded 2.0 GHz Celeron processor that manages all of the real-time aspects of acquisition hardware management and data buffering. Higher level data pre-processing and transfer management, is controlled by the embedded DAPL real-time operating system that runs on every Data Acquisition Processor (DAP) system. On the host side, xDAP 7410 uses the same driver system called the "channel architecture" for all of the DAP products.
