VISION Data Analyzer Software

Simple Measurement Data Analysis

VISION Data Analyzer (VDA) is a new software application from ATI for viewing and analyzing recorded data using the industry standard ASAM MDF4 file format. As a 64-bit Windows application it supports large file sizes generated by either ATI or 3rd party software.

VISION Calibration and Data Acquisition Software is capable of exporting and recording directly into MDF4 format. Opening common ASCII data files (.TXT, .TSV, .CSV) or VISION .REC files in VDA automatically converts them to MDF files and allows the viewing of recorded data that would normally have been too large for viewing within VISION. The methodology of VDA provides users the ability to view and analyze data sets that would not be possible in a 32-bit application.
  • Supports ASAM MDF4 standard file format
  • View and overlay multiple recordings
  • Create and share layout templates to view multiple files the same way
  • Intuitive navigation and extensive pan and zoom functionality
  • Spend your time analyzing data rather than configuring software
  • Export entire/partial data sets 
  • Meticulously recrafted as 64-bit for large files

Calculated Channels

VDA Calculated Channels allows different formula types including C# based calculations. When saving an MDF, VDA stores the calculations in the MDF attachment. Exporting an MDF stores calculations as channels in the file.

Overview Scrollbar

The Overview Scrollbar will always appear beneath the lowest graph’s X axis and it can be used to display an overview of all the data acquired for select data items in the MF4 file. The horizontal scroll bar doubles as a trace overview, up to 5 signals can be dragged to the overvew bar. The Overview Scrollbar displays the full signals independent of the zoom levels.

Multiple Independent Graphs

Page layouts can contain up to sixteen independently configured graphs.

Import VISION Layouts

Stored VISION layouts (*.rlt) can be imported into VISION Data Analyzer *.layout files. The first 15 layouts are in the layout menu, layouts are stored in a common location. Layout information is added as an attachment when the file is saved.

Software PC Requirements

Software PC Requirements

VISION Data Analyzer 3.6 

Any modern PC with a supported Windows operating system has the capability to run VISION Data Analyzer (VDA). However, the user experience will vary based on the performance of the PC. Whether a particular PC configuration will provide acceptable performance with VDA depends on how VDA is used at your company. The best approach when selecting a PC to run VDA would be to obtain a sample of a potential PC and test it under real-world conditions.

Minimum Requirements
 ATI Recommendations
Operating System64-bit operating system required:
Windows 10, Windows 11
Windows Server: 2008 R2 – 2022
ATI recommends a Windows operating system that is currently supported by Microsoft.
RAM VDA should run with the minimum amount of RAM required by the version of Windows being usedFor best performance, ATI recommends as much RAM as practical for your budget. More RAM will generally result in a better user experience when running VDA.
 ProcessorVDA should run with any processor supported by the version of Windows being used.
For best performance, ATI recommends the highest performance processor that your budget allows. VDA should run with any processor supported by the version of Windows operating system being used. However, higher-performance processors will offer a better user experience when running VDA. 
Storage Approximately 2 GB for VDA installation. For best performance, ATI recommends a solid-state drive (SSD).

You’ll also need additional free space to accommodate the way VDA is used at your company. For example, if VDA usage at your company involves the use or storage of large files (such as recorded data files) then you’ll need enough free space to accommodate that.
 Graphics No special requirementsFor best performance, ATI recommends selecting higher performance graphics card hardware when possible. Although VDA has no special requirements for graphics card hardware, higher performance graphics cards can provide a better user experience for operations such as displaying live data or analyzing recorded data.
