Technology And PCMCIA Date Acquisition


The advancements in technology have enabled society to live their life at a fast and mobile pace. Remember the days when in order to use your computer you had to be sitting at a desk. The first desktop computers literally needed their own room. Then as technology advanced desktop computers became more powerful and smaller.

Then they created the laptop computer. This was one of the first portable computers. In order to make it mobile, each laptop computer contained a PC card. The PC card is the form factor of a peripheral interface designed for a laptop computer. The PC card was initially known as PCMCIA, or Personal Computer Memory Card International Associations. Named after the group of companies who worked together to create the PC card. They developed the PCMCIA data acquisition standard. The idea was to develop technology that would challenge the Japanese JEIDA memory card. In 1991 the two standards merged.

You would not consider that this would have an impact of our natural resources, but it has. Technology has provided different companies with the opportunity to move their base location out into the field. For instance, when exploring for oil and natural gas locations, survey teams used to have to rely on boreholes for mineral exploration.

Nowadays, they can use 3D PCMCIA data acquisition (DAQ) as well as ISA, USB and PCI technologies in conjunction with bore-holes to determine viable locations. Technology has decreased the time and simplified the process.

Technology has made so many advances that it has now become a Geotechnical investigator's best friend. Geotechnical investigators use geophysical methods to measure the physical proprieties of the subsurface of the earth. This technique is applied to infer or detect the existence and the position of ore minerals and hydrocarbons concentration. PCMCIA data acquisition is necessary in organizing the data. What, used to take investigators months to process can now be downloaded in a matter of minutes.

Since the advancement of technology, companies like Geokinetics have been able to survey global locations for oil and natural gas. They use a broad range of specialized geophysical services to survey oil, gas and mining industries worldwide. Daq enables companies to provide services that include land, shallow water Ocean bottom cable and transition zone seismic information to companies in diverse cultures, areas with industrial variables and extreme environmental sensitivity. These are just some of the advances that PCMCIA data acquisition can provide companies around the world.

Data Acquisition Systems And Their Construction For Human Terms

By Adriana R Noton
Data acquisition systems are also known by the acronym DAS and can best be understood by thinking in terms of the five senses and the way a human being interprets and manages data. We have our sensing organs, our nerves that send the data along to our brains, which interpret it in a way we can understand.

Data Acquisition Systems: Analog to Digital

By Jamie Doyle
Data acquisition and data acquisition systems (known as DAS) take analog waveforms, collected by specific sensors that generate electrical signals into digital data for processing. Most of the computers that we think about today are strictly digital but the first computers in last century were analog, so most of us are unfamiliar with taking analog waveforms in any form. (Think about the change in taking one's temperature - from the mercury filled glass stick that you stuck under your tongue to the digital ear probe; from analog measurement to a digital method.)
