• DESIGNING A HIGH-SPEED DATA ARCHIVE SYSTEM

      Modern telemetry systems collect large quantities of data at high rates of speed. To support near real-time analysis of this data, a sophisticated data archival system is required. If the data is to be analyzed during the test, it must be available via computer-accessible peripheral devices. The use of computer-compatible media permits powerful “instant- replay-type” functions to be implemented, allowing the user to search for events, blow-up time segments, or alter playback rates. Using computer-compatible media also implies inexpensive COTS devices with an “industry standard” interface and direct media compatibility with host processing systems. This paper discusses the design and implementation of a board-level archive subsystem developed by Veda Systems, Incorporated.
