Put the pieces together
Building a complex instrumentation system with most data acquisition
products is like building a house with wood chips. Yes, it can be done,
and the chips are certainly inexpensive. You just need lots of glue. But
if you want the project to move quickly, you need fully developed
system components that are ready for service.
Channel Architecture ensures that a broad range of hardware devices work together, with the DAPL System covering the low-level details of the acquisition process so that your front-end data management clients receive clean data, ready-to-use. This section describes how system components work together to make this happen.
