A new tool builds on an existing library of measurements and examples typically used in audio, acoustic and vibration applications. The Sound and Vibration Toolset Version 2.0 performs simultaneous multi-channel measurements, reducing development time in high channel-count systems. Added frequency measurements such as zoom FFT, peak search and power-in-band help simplify custom sound and vibration application development for users. This version takes advantage of today’s multi-processor computers to improve system performance. For example, engineers and scientists using the updated tool set can perform real-time octave analysis on nearly twice as many channels in a dual processor computer than with a single processor computer. Other measurements can be integrated such as temperature, pressure, image acquisition, and motion control. Priced from $1,495. NATIONAL INSTRUMENTS, Austin, TX. (800) 258-7022.
