DSP Development Corporation announces DADiSP® 6.5

Enhanced computation, plotting, algorithm development and integrated MATLAB® code execution simplifies complex data analysis tasks.

DADiSP 6.5, the newest release of the engineering spreadsheet designed specifically for technical data analysis from DSP Development Corporation (Newton, MA) is now available from Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts).

DADiSP 6.5 supports the processing of multi-channel data displayed in a familiar stripchart recorder plot. Calculations on a stripchart extend to each trace and automatically produce a corresponding output stripchart. Properties such as trace colour, axis placement and colour attributes are easily specified. By providing a ‘one to many’ calculation environment stripchart processing can greatly simplify the task of multi-channel data analysis.

DADiSP 6.5 adds seamless execution of MATLAB code directly from DADiSP. DADiSP 6.5 processes any built-in or custom MATLAB function or script just as if it were a native DADiSP function. MATLAB and DADiSP functions and data can be freely mixed. DADiSP 6.5 automatically plots series and array results from MATLAB in a DADiSP Window. MATLAB code embedded into a Worksheet Window formula is hot-linked and automatically re-calculates in response to source data changes.

DADiSP 6.5 extends DADiSP’s Series Processing Language to support both function and file based static and global variables. A new form based custom dialogue box facility enables the inclusion of GUI specifications and related SPL functions in one combined file. An integrated GUI based debugger simplifies the development of custom SPL functions. SPL’s C/C++ syntax offers a familiar and clean programming style allowing users to create custom routines using standard programming techniques.

Additional features include mouse based visual data editing, enhanced shape and text annotations with a programmable object-handle interface, .NET and ActiveX event handling and expanded on line documentation.

DADiSP 6.5 also adds over 100 new built-in and SPL routines spanning the areas of matrix and series manipulation, signal processing, maths, colour, series generation, curve fitting and statistics. “DADiSP 6.5 now offers over 1,000 analysis routines with an intuitive and familiar user interface to provide one of the most comprehensive data analysis tools available today,” said Randy Race, DSP’s Chief Technical Officer. “DADiSP is used by tens of thousands of scientists and engineers worldwide as a high productivity alternative to traditional spreadsheets, FORTRAN, C/C++ and MATLAB programming.”

The DADiSP range of products, including a choice of optional extensions, is supplied and supported by Adept Scientific in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Scandinavia and Nordic countries.

Course was excellent, Bob was very thorough, covering a lot of ground. The content was just what was required. Very pleased!

Thank you for all your efforts. A perfect example of what support should be. Again thank you.
