Ch NIDAQ Ch Data Acquisition Package for NI-DAQ

Ch NIDAQ Package for NI-DAQ is Ch binding to National Instruments' NI-DAQ. NI-DAQ APIs in C are developed by National Instruments to control all of the National Instruments plug-in data acquisition boards for analog I/O, SCXI signal conditioning, and RTSI multi-board synchronization. Through NI-DAQ APIs, C programs can configure and communicate with all National Instruments multifunction data acquisition products. NI-DAQ has both high-level DAQ I/O functions for maximum ease of use and low-level DAQ I/O functions for maximum flexibility and performance. NI-DAQ includes a Buffer and Data Manager that uses sophisticated techniques for handling and managing data acquisition buffers so that data can be acquired and processed simultaneously. With the NI-DAQ Resource Manager, several functions and several boards can be simultaneously used as well.

With Ch NIDAQ, all NI-DAQ C programs can readily run without tedious compiling and linking cycles. Ch NIDAQ can be used to increase efficiencies for rapid application development and open architecture integration of mechatronic systems. It can especially shorten the time to develop solutions with real-time data acquisition for engineers without extensive VC++ programming experience.

Moreover, real-time data of machinery and equipment can be easily acquired remotely and displayed through the Web dynamically. The Web-based data acquisition can be very useful for adaptive intelligent mechantronic systems for remote monitoring, control and autonomous motion. With built-in graphical support,Ch OpenGL, Ch GTK, Ch X/Motif and Ch CGI, Web-based real-time graphical applications for data acquisition can be easily developed and deployed.
