IEEE Webinar: Advanced Data Acquisition and Logging Systems

Register Here

22 June, 2017 – Arev and Rafayel discussing about the advanced data acquisition and logging systems on IEEE Spectrum Webinar. On demand webinar available from 22 Jun 2017 recording.

It is difficult to envision an industrial automation application that does not include a data acquisition system. Most applications include sensor data that must be acquired, analyzed, and logged, using acquisition (DAQ) systems that can be as diverse as the sensors themselves.

With the rise of the Internet of Things, DAQ requirements are becoming even more strict, bringing new challenges. Today’s data acquisition systems should perform analysis in real time, work with large amounts of analog data, and make decisions based on those results. The importance of a robust, real-time, decision-making, signal-processing system FPGA platforms the best fit for many such applications.

Designers of DAQ systems need to consider scalability, portability, and stable operation. At this session, we will explore the main challenges and best practices in data-logging system design, particularly in the LabVIEW environment.

The webinar examines the underlying implementation of an object-oriented approach to application design, DAQ tips and tricks for FPGA platforms, and an object-oriented programming architecture for real-time and host applications.

The session also explores several case studies of developed DAQ systems, showing the main challenges faced and the solutions implemented in the projects.
