Sample data log code for DSP?

Started by aojkim August 9, 2010
So you didn't answer me just because I used abbreviations? I didn't know
there were still websites that required full unabbreviated words and
sentences. I thought I was on internet, no writing a letter. And if you
knew that it was my first time here you wouldve understood that I didn't
know any rules such as unabbreviated words and could've told me instead of
completely ignoring me.

I didn't answer you because I know nothing about the board. (Does it stand alone? Does it plug into a mother board?) Google would have told me, but you could have too. The rest is just a matter of manners and the social norms expected here.

That's why I suggested documenting this to "da boss", if you need to prove that you've made a good college try.

But we tried!

Most of us don't -- I know I certainly wasn't trying to be condescending or rude in my response, and I'm sorry if it came across that way. This is USENET, though, so expect some unsolicited rudeness from time to time -- it comes with the territory. I try to take it as an opportunity to be nice in the face of rudeness -- sometimes I even succeed. One often needs multiple tries to get the right answer -- one of the things one learns from newsgroups is how ambiguous any written language really is. After you ask your boss for documents, search the manufacturer's web site (I should have thought of this before...). Most manufacturers put all that sort of data up on their sites, so if Richard's suggestion hasn't lead you to it a good swing through the mfgr. site may well get you all the documents that should have come with the board. (Note that some manufactures aren't good about this -- they either want to hold their IP tightly, or they aren't good at documenting what they sell. But _most_ companies that are serious about selling this sort of thing will work hard to get you the data you need, whether you have their board or not.) -- Tim Wescott Wescott Design Services http://www.wescottdesign.com Do you need to implement control loops in software?

If it has sample code it may be fairly easy to adapt it to Windows 7. At least easier than starting from a blank sheet. -- Tim Wescott Wescott Design Services http://www.wescottdesign.com Do you need to implement control loops in software?

Getting bent out of shape when someone's wise grandfather tries to help you out won't earn you points anywhere. You may be on a web portal, but this is USENET. And, if you look at your keyboard, you will note that there are over 100 keys there, to help you spell each word out completely. Moreover, there is no limit to the amount of text you can type in before you hit "send". Thus, the only motivation to use abbreviations is for your own convenience, at the expense of those from whom you wish to solicit free advise. Tell me -- when you're at a picnic, do you walk up to the guy at the grill, kick him in the shins and demand a burger? Or do you at least smile at him when you hold out your plate? -- Tim Wescott Wescott Design Services http://www.wescottdesign.com Do you need to implement control loops in software?

Getting a response is a privilege and not a right..... Folks have to be interested enough in your situation to be motivated, etc. So, that some one in particular didn't provide a response is certainly no reason to chide them. In fact, it's rude. Jerry was giving you good advice as an aside. If you pay attention to what he said then you'll benefit. Be willing to learn from this. "Thank you" never hurts..... If I had a ready answer to your question then I'd likely have responded had I been around when you posted. As it stands, you got some good input - even though *I* can't find the code referenced in Richard's post at DataRAM. Or, did you expect for everyone lurking to post: "Gee sorry, I don't know" just to report in to you? Sometimes it really helps to talk around the subject. John's comment was particularly pertinent. Taking that as a lead, I looked into the P25M a bit: It appears that the Pismo tools would be a step in the right direction: http://www.innovative-dsp.com/ftp/P25M/ and the product documentation is there also. Here you have a programmable PCI board. I used to develop these things. It's not uncomplicated because you have to do two or three things: 1) you have to have code for the board to run your app. 2) You need to have code on the PC to load the code on the board. 2) you have to have code for the PC to run your app. So, I'd say that you need TWO sets of example code and some tools to make it make sense.

One day, during a cold winter, a chicken went for a walk. It was very=20 cold, so the chicken got frozen and felt down. Some cow was walking near = by, and as she was passing, she dumped a pile of crap on the chicken.=20 The shit was warm, so the chicken came alive and started cackling. A fox = heard the cackling, pulled the chicken out of the shit and ate him. Moral: 1. The one who dumps on you is not always your foe. 2. The one who pulls you out is not always your friend. 3. If you are in the shit, don=92t cackle. //---------------------- VLV

Bet he never looked at links in first hit on http://www.google.com/search?q=dsp+P25M+"Innovative+Integration" You know the ones containing "Datasheet" and "Documentation", among others :<
If you didn't know anything about the board you shouldn't have written
anything in the first place. I told you I googled it for three days and
still can't find it. I don't see where you got your manner, pretending to
help someone when you know nothing about it.

It is just a program that I need to install but I can't install it,
probably since the lab computers are using Windows 7. (The requirements
didn't include Windows 7)
And I tried e-mailing them about it, they gave me some solutions, none of
them worked.
