ActiveX technology enables standard Web browsers to distribute, display and manipulate interactive engineering analysis
Newton, MA November 4, 2002.
DSP Development Corporation has announced DADiSP/2002, the newest release of
the engineering spreadsheet designed specifically for technical data analysis.
DADiSP/2002 now supports external Worksheet Documents or .DWK files
(DADiSP Worksheet File). DWK files are single file, standalone
worksheets that adhere to the Compound Document file format. DWK
files can be emailed and viewed by anyone running DADiSP/2002 and
standard Web browsers can access DADiSP Worksheets directly from the
Internet. Because DADiSP/2002 functions as a full ActiveX Document
Server, any ActiveX Container application such as Excel or Word can
embed, manipulate, save and print DADiSP Worksheets.
DADiSP/2002 adds several data transfer methods to an extensive
environment. DADiSP/2002's dual COM automation
support allows both interpreted languages such as Visual Basic and
compiled languages like C/C++ to make efficient use of DADiSP as an
extremely powerful data analysis engine. Any application supporting
Automation can seamlessly connect to DADiSP via standard ActiveX
protocols to gain access to over 1000 fast and efficient data
analysis routines. DADiSP/2002 also functions as an Automation
Client, allowing COM based Automation Servers to be incorporated into
the DADiSP environment via SPL, DADiSP's Series Processing Language.
DADiSP/2002 employs a "just in time" optimized memory management
scheme to make the most of system memory when processing large or
small datasets. Large series are transparently buffered to and from
the disk while in-memory buffers are tailored specifically to the
result of the calculation at hand. The maximum buffer size can be
customized to take advantage of today's large memory systems.
Calculations involving smaller series automatically compress to
conserve total memory space. JIT memory management combined with
code optimization has resulted in speed improvements of up to 100%
for many core signal processing functions.
DADiSP/2002 extends DADiSP's Series Processing Language, SPL,
to provide variable function arguments, ternary
conditional statements, user defined error handlers and optimized
loop processing. SPL's C/C++ syntax offers a familiar and clean
programming style enabling users to create custom functions and
procedures using standard programming techniques. DADiSP/2002
includes over 100 new built-in and SPL routines spanning the areas of
matrix and series manipulation, signal processing, math, color,
series generation, curve fitting and statistics.
"DADiSP/2002 now offers over 1000 analysis routines with an intuitive
and familiar user interface to provide one of the most comprehensive
technical data analysis tools available today" said Randy Race, DSP's
Chief Technical Officer. "DADiSP is used by
thousands of scientists and engineers worldwide as a high
productivity alternative to traditional spreadsheet, FORTRAN, C/C++
and Matlab programming."
DADiSP/2002 for Windows 9x/2000/NT/XP is priced at $1995.00 and
includes 90 days of technical support. DADiSP/2002 is now available for
A free DADiSP Worksheet Browser and 30 Day Full Product License is
