DEC yesterday enhanced its real-time offerings for the VAX line, bringing out Version 1.2 of the VAXlab data acquisition and analysis system, which includes the VAXlab Software Library; Version 3.0 of VAXELN real-time operating software; and DECscan/ELN driver. The VAXlab Data Acquisition and Analysis enhancements extend functionality to distributed data acquisition and data analysis at the low-end of the computing spectrum and to compute and input-output-intensive applications such as telemetry at the high-end. VAXlab systems now support serial input-output and IEEE-488; a new Q-bus analogue-to-digital converter with 32 channels of input and data acquisition speeds of up to 200KHz; and a price cut on the VAXlab Software Library. Base price for the VAXlab/VAXstation 3500 system is $62,000. Prices for VAXlab systems no go from $8,000 for packaged VAXstation 2000 system to $900,000 for a VAX 8800-based system. VAXELN Version 3.0 is designed to complement and extend VMS software for realtime applications, offering improved speed and facilities intended to reduce implementation time – and on the VAX 8800 supports symmetric multiprocessing. Prices for VAXELN Version 3.0 with Toolkit and Runtime System go from $1,470 for a VAXstation 2000 Toolkit and MicroVAX II Runtime system combination to $14,600 for a VAXstation 2000 Toolkit and VAX 8800 Runtime system. The DECscan/ELN driver enables users to control BitBus input-output devices on the factory floor, linking up to 250 BitBus devices to a realtime MicroVAX host. DECscan/ELN products go from $120 to $700 depending on options. All the new products will be ready to ship in the US this month.
