Signal Processing Toolbox for VisiQuest 4.2

AccuSoft has launched a new Signal Processing Toolbox for its VisiQuest Version 4.2 data and image analysis solution, as well as enhancing the main product itself.

Using the new add-on module, engineers in the fields of communications, audio/video analysis and development, radar/sonar, consumer, medical electronics and other markets can complete their prototypes sooner. VisiQuest 4.2’s graphical programming environment combined with the wide-ranging set of functionality in the new toolbox allows electronics manufacturers to rapidly develop and test prototypes for applications such as signal compression and decompression, digital filter design, spectral analysis, and noise reduction.

The comprehensive set of signal processing, analysis, and visualisation functionality available in the toolbox allows scientists and engineers to easily apply and modify dozens of industry-standard digital filters. Users can rapidly decompose signals using a series of transforms (including FFTW, Hilbert, etc.), perform convolution, deconvolution, correlation (auto, cross, matrix, partial, rank, etc.) and covariance (auto- and cross-). All of the functionality is available in the VisiQuest graphical programming environment, meaning engineers do not need to write any programs using a proprietary language when developing and testing their prototypes. As a result, they can dramatically improve their ability to get products to market faster.

VisiQuest 4.2 itself now has a number of new features for its Windows version that are already available for its UNIX releases. The ability to make runtime changes to an application dramatically speeds testing by allowing complex applications to continue to execute while the user conducts fine tuning.
