Microstar Laboratories™ manufactures add-in boards for PC-based
real-time data acquisition and control. Every board has its own processor and operating system. Onboard intelligence allows high-speed I/O, transparent expansion, and real-time processing including DSP and network access all free from PC-induced delays. DAPtools for MATLAB allow a user to communicate with a Data Acquisition Processor using the MATLAB programming environment. It integrates the processing power of a Data Acquisition Processor with the powerful technical computing environment of MATLAB. Application Areas: Data acquisition; Global Positioning Systems; Hydraulics/pneumatics; Materials research; Optics; Real-time systems; Satellite design; Thermodynamics.
