Building a Test System for High-Speed Data Streaming Applications

High-speed data streaming applications typically require maximum accuracy and long sampling times, including such applications as spectral monitoring, signal intelligence, LIDAR testing, optical fiber testing, radar and satellite signal acquisition, and software defined radio systems. These present unique engineering challenges requiring high throughput, and identifying design flaws and problems can contribute to reduced development costs and time to market, avoiding field recalls and costly system redesigns. The white paper discusses techniques for optimizing configuration of systems supporting high-bandwidth applications, by: Enabling high-speed real-time data streaming Designing applications optimizing system streaming performance Furnishing benchmarks that can be achieved in stream-to-disk and stream-to-memory applications
