New Powerful Waveform Editing Software Solution
Create Real World Test Signals with Ease
YORBA LINDA, CA, August 3, 2010 -- B&K Precision, a key manufacturer of benchtop test
instrumentation, has developed and launched WaveXpress™, a powerful, new software application for creating complex test
signals which can be transferred and reproduced on B&K arbitrary waveform
generators (AWG). WaveXpress on your PC interfaces via GPIB, RS-232, or USB–and
when used along with B&K Precision AWGs and DSOs–it functions as a complete
test solution for performing demanding circuit validation tasks. This
integration not only allows for designing and debugging in industry
applications, but also serves as an excellent educational tool.
WaveXpress users can edit
waveforms downloaded directly from a B&K Precision digital storage
oscilloscope (DSO), or alternatively create new waveforms from scratch without
any external instruments. Once a waveform has been set up as desired, WaveXpress
enables direct upload of the modified signals to a B&K AWG to stimulate
circuits and systems. The software’s scan feature automatically detects
connected AWGs and DSOs when interfaced via USB or GPIB.
To help expedite certain
types of signal tests, WaveXpress contains a large library of noise
distributions that can easily be added to waveforms. The software conveniently
stores dialog settings for faster repetitive work, and features easy panning
and zooming down to the individual point level. The WaveXpress PC interface
comprises five full language settings, namely English, French, German,
Portuguese, and Spanish, with the unique feature of user-modification of
existing languages, or complete addition of new language libraries.
More advanced users can
take the program’s capabilities to another level via the Python programming
language. As a Python-based open-source application, WaveXpress allows any
number of user-defined signal transformations through a wealth of Python
libraries relevant to the scientific and engineering communities. Even with
limited Python knowledge, users can automate waveform-processing tasks, or
customize the software for more complex requirements.

intuitive interface and limitless editing features of WaveXpress. Visit
