A graphical test and measurement (T&M) solution for Visual Studio .Net is now available locally to software developers.
A recent agreement between Agilent Technologies and SoftWire Technology integrated Agilent's Test and Measurement Toolkit with SoftWire 4.2 for Visual Studio .Net.
Version 1.1 of the solution is an open standard software development suite that supports both Visual Studio .Net and Visual Studio .Net 2003, a spokesperson said. The T&M Toolkit extends the Visual Studio .Net platform with integrated software tools designed to configure, acquire, analyse and display data from test instruments and test systems.
SoftWire is named according to the 'soft wires' used to connect blocks when using the open-standard graphical programming interface for Visual Studio .Net 2003.
The integrated product is available locally via Novatech. The distributor is offering sample CDs of the product as well as the full version for $US495 (about $760).
