ARPG VIDAS Systems incorporate VXI instrumentation with a fully integrated WinXP native software package called IMPAX-SD™. It uses build-on-demand database technology to automatically manage and configure your testing environment for measurement, control, reporting and correlating data timing for high-speed and transient testing applications. IMPAX-SD eliminates manual setup/calibration operations, gives lightning fast data display, and
instant review. Real-time snapshot FIFOs allow DAS channel monitoring for reconfiguring your test on the fly.
