VisSim/UDP™

VisSim/UDP
UDP Receive block dialog box

VisSim/UDP lets you read and write standard UDP internet packets from the VisSim block diagram via UDP read/write blocks. VisSim/UDP lets you determine the packet layout by allowing you to specify the byte offset and datatype of each element. You can choose 8-, 16-, or 32-bit signed and unsigned integer; 4- and 8-byte floats; and 16- or 32-bit scaled integers. You can use VisSim/UDP for remote sensing, data exchange or remote control. You can easily log data, plot, strip chart or run a virtual plant or controller for model based development. To exchange UDP data with VisSim, you must have an internet connection, either wired or wireless. Then just insert and graphically connect UDP Read and/or UDP Write blocks into a diagram and click the Go button. You can transmit and receive from any number of different IP addresses in a single diagram. The UDP Read and UDP Write blocks let you read data from and write data to UDP ports. Data types and byte offset within the data packet can be quickly modified through the dialog boxes for these blocks.

We selected VisSim/UDP software to help us develop inter-device UDP communication for our automated glucose measurement system. The software's graphical user interface made it easy to learn and use. The ability to control the packet size, UDP address, and interpret the size and type of data bytes within the packet, gave us all the flexibility we needed right out of the box. The USB hardware was convenient and easy to use too. It saved us a considerable amount of development time.
I highly recommend this software.
