A C++ based DAQ system for small and medium
sized experimentswith LabView as
graphical user interface
III. Phys. Inst.
According to the needs of typical laboratory test
requirements a small DAQ system was developed based on VME.
The features of an object oriented approach led to the choice
of C++ as programming language for the kernel. This minimises
the effort of implementing new devices into the existing
framework, and the idea of using an object oriented
data base for data storage can be implemented most naturally.
LabView, a commercial graphical programming language, was
selected to provide easy to use tools for comfortable control
and on-line data presentation and analysis.
