Abstract With modern data acquisition devices that work fast and very precise, scientists often face the task of dealing with huge amounts of data. These need to be rapidly processed and stored onto a hard disk. We present a LabVIEW program which reliably streams analog time series of MHz sampling. Its run time has virtually no limitation. We explicitly show how to use the program to extract time series from two experiments: For a photodiode detection system that tracks the position of an optically tr... Title of program: TimeSeriesStreaming.VI Catalogue Id: AEHT_v1_0 Nature of problem For numerous scientific and engineering applications, it is highly desirable to have an efficient, reliable, and flexible program to perform data streaming of time series sampled with high frequencies and possibly for long time intervals. This type of data acquisition often produces very large amounts of data not easily streamed onto a computer hard disk using standard methods. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AEHT_v1_0; TimeSeriesStreaming.VI; 10.1016/j.cpc.2010.10.019 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
