  • We chose the MATLAB® environment for Acq_Mat because leveraging this mathematical and graphic environment  provides a robust turnkey solution that reduced development and debugging time. The user can also easily perform additional data analysis on all data obtained and create custom graphs from within this MATLAB® environment. 

  • We chose the VTI Instruments' hardware platform because it is a stable, scalable, high performance measurement system with a good interface to PCs.   The hardware is reasonably portable and can be controlled by a laptop or desktop computer with impressive  performance.  You are also not limited to one vendor’s software solution.
