Digital Signal Processing in Windows Real-time

POSTED 09/30/2013

Digital Signal Processing in Windows Real-timeDo you want to filter digital signals or implement a feedback control in a real-time process? Kithara's new SigProc Module is out now! It has to offer noise reduction, edge detection, frequency band pass/stop and many more applications.

There is the possibility to already filter signals while acquiring the signal in real-time. Although, we offer a selection of high-pass, low-pass, band-pass and band-stop filters. Creating filters for specific problems is possible, too.

Or do you consider implementing a feedback control and have to respond to disturbances or to quick changes of the setpoint in real-time? The SigProc Module provides a PID controller, that can compute inputs in real-time. The cycle "acquire – process – react" cannot be interrupted by Windows®.
Mind the options of Kithara's Multitasking Module and Dedicated Module. Using these modules, the signal processing or feedback control can be executed independently within its own task on a seperate CPU core. An optimal real-time performance can be accomplished.
