Sample data log code for DSP?

Started by aojkim August 9, 2010
Hello,

I am an intern for a lab, and I recently installed P25M from Innovative
Integration on a pc.
I was told to use Octave, which I found easily.
My next step, however, is this:
"Get a sample code for data logging using DSP"

I AM STARTING COMPLETELY FROM SCRACTH.
PLEASE HELP ME.

Answers such as "read a book first," "read basics first" will not help
because I was told to "get a sample code," not learn about DSP.

If anyone could help me, it would be really really appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Uh -- get a new boss first? Have you done a web search? This is the sort of thing that I never seem to find joy with trying to scratch up code from the Internet -- if you find anything at all, chances are it doesn't work. In fact, you may be best served if you _do_ find something that is _clearly_ not applicable. Then you can show it to your boss, say "this is the best that's out there", and suggest that you start writing code. _Then_ you'll need to learn the basics! Document what you search for -- if your boss is convinced that its out there and it isn't then saying "I couldn't find it" won't prove to him that it's not there -- it'll prove to him that you're not there. Saying "I tried this, and this, and this and still no luck" will be your best chance if it really isn't out there. -- Tim Wescott Wescott Design Services http://www.wescottdesign.com Do you need to implement control loops in software?

In my practice, quite often I have to fix up things which are already messed up. How I wish that I could start everything from scratch.

Get a sample code then. What is a problem?

Hm. And what do you offer in return for help? VLV

Have you read the docs that came with your DSP board? Is there not sample code to grab data from the A/Ds and transfer to the PC memory? John

Out of curiosity, I just looked at the II website. This took me approx 45 seconds. Under "Support-->Forums" there is an "Application Notes" forum, and an example called: "High-speed Data Logging to a RAM disk". Might that be the sort of thing you want? If it is, can I claim a consultancy fee from II? At 1$ per second, I reckon I am cheap at twice the price. :-) Richard Dobson
Tim-- All I have done for the last three days is web search. Type "Sample
DSP code." or anything along the lines and you will see that nothing I need
comes out.

VLV-- My problem is I can't find a sample code. I would not be using my
time to write a question before searching online for a good three days.

John-- My boss just gave me the board, nothing else. Should I ask him for
documents?

Richard-- Thank you. You were the only one who answered my question. I
really did look for it, just couldn't find the right name for it.. I didn't
know application "notes" would have real apps...

For all you people, just because this is my first thread doesn't mean I'm
gonna ask one question, just grab the answer and leave. First three people
were no help for me at all. Just because a real beginner comes to your
thread and u know more info than them doesnt mean u guys can look down on
them.

I think a good place to go is the university website. Sometimes the school offers some demo code for students to study. Which board are you using now?
Btw richard, I think this is right, but my lab comp is windows 7 and this
is only for windows xp/2000........
but i really appreciated ur answer. at least i know some background info to
what it's called.

We answer questions for beginners all the time here. We don't do students' homework, but we do offer guidance for getting it done. Wyour kind of query, we expect to be told not only what the question is, but what efforts were made that didn't work. Personally, I am not inclined to exert much effort on behalf of someone who can't be bothered to spell out his question, but instd uzs cryptic 'breviations the way u do. This is not a chat room or Twitter. http://users.erols.com/jyavins/procfaq.htm is a summary of our practice.

Are they available online? Have you called the vendor? John
