The newest in the Data Acquisition Processor (DAP) Measurement Studio software, DAPstudio 2.5 offers live data in bar graphs, line graphs, and waterfall formats, with flat and 3D views in each. Optional rotating colors for the waveforms in a waterfall graph allow a specific spectrum to move back in time with the same color. The software can help build a PC-based management system with one or multiple DAP boards, with each board offering an additional processor running an operating system controlled from a Windows application. It costs $199, and the full version can be downloaded from the company's website for a free trial.
