View data aquisition in real time
As a file-management system for VMEbus-based DSP and data-acquisition subsystems, the File Transfer Language (FTL) is a collection of software libraries for initializing, organizing, sorting, and retrieving data. FTL offers streaming support for single or multichannel ADCs and DACs, SCSI tape drives, RAM disks, I/O, host workstation file systems, and C40 comm ports. FTL runs on any TI-based C40 board that Pentek supports. Host workstations connect via Ethernet, DSP processors, and peripherals over the VMEbus. Support for C40 boards is provided through their comm ports, allowing a single FTL stream to be processed by several DSPs. C and SPOX programming is supported under FTL.
