MATLAB File Import for DADiSP

New module allows DADiSP users to import MATLAB data into DADiSP for graphical analysis, manipulation and presentation

Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts) announces a brand-new module for the DADiSP graphical data analysis application that allows MATLAB files to be imported for manipulation, analysis and presentation of scientific and technical data using DADiSP’s powerful, interactive graphics capabilities.

The new DADiSP/MAT File is a simple, dialogue-based module that loads MATLAB .MAT data files (version 4.0 and higher) of any size and containing any number of variables into DADiSP. You can import the entire contents of the file, or select a sub-set of specific variables. The software will handle both Real and Complex Arrays; 1×1 arrays can be imported as scalars; and array variables can be plotted automatically. String variables are supported, and structures and cells are imported as global variables. With this new module, DADiSP users can work with MATLAB files without having MATLAB itself installed on their computer.

DADiSP, from DSP Development Corporation (Newton, Massachusetts) is an interactive graphics worksheet – a visually oriented software package for the display, management, analysis and presentation of scientific and technical data. Its highly graphical user interface features interrelated “live” graphical windows, manipulated by simple pull-down menus, dialogue boxes and point-and-click operation.

Like MATLAB, DADiSP is designed to meet the demanding data analysis needs of scientists and engineers. But while MATLAB is a matrix-based programming language, DADiSP is a full-featured data analysis and visualisation environment designed around a more generalized data construct called a data series which can represent anything from a time domain radar signal to a medical image, and includes important attributes about the data.

In short, MATLAB is essentially an interpreted programming environment, somewhat analogous to Visual Basic with technical data analysis capability. DADiSP is more like a spreadsheet, a non-programming core methodology that includes a programming language (SPS), similar to the combination of Excel and Visual Basic. Able to handle even the largest data sets, DADiSP presents the data in multiple graphical windows which, rather like the cells of a spreadsheet, update automatically when a variable is changed.

DADiSP provides a visual and intuitive method of handling technical data, and this new ability to use MATLAB data files makes it a viable alternative for engineers, scientists and other technical users.

Very enthusiastic, willing to answer questions, helpful, friendly – overall very good

Tutor was very knowledgeable and taught in a way that was easy to follow

KH, Uxbridge, UK

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

“While skeptical at first, now having switched to Origin I know it will remain my graphing software of choice. Not only does it have an intuitive user interface, but it also has the power to quickly and efficiently complete all of my graphing needs. Origin is the best graphing software available. Period.”
