National Instruments acquires DSP software developer

National Instruments (NI) has acquired software developer Hyperception, which designs graphical development tools for digital signal processing (DSP). Hyperception's software uses a graphical system design methodology to generate embedded code for DSP chips, including Texas Instruments' (TI) C2000/ C3000/C5000/C6000 DSP families and Analog Devices' SHARC/Blackfin DSP families.

National Instruments (NI) has acquired software developer Hyperception, which designs graphical development tools for digital signal processing (DSP). Hyperception's software uses a graphical system design methodology to generate embedded code for DSP chips, including Texas Instruments' (TI) C2000/ C3000/C5000/C6000 DSP families and Analog Devices' SHARC/Blackfin DSP families.

NI adds that the acquisition strengthens its position as a leader in graphical development tools for design and test engineers, and offers enhanced capabilities for the LabView platform to directly target embedded signal processing applications. NI will continue to operate Hyperception as a separate company in Dallas, while their development teams work to integrate the products and knowledge base of the two companies. As a wholly owned subsidiary of NI, Hyperception will continue to develop and offer its complete line of graphical development software for DSP applications, as well as directly support educational initiatives with uninterrupted support to participating schools.

"Integration of the Hyperception graphical DSP technology with LabView is a leap forward in simplifying the development of signal processing solutions, and expands the reach of DSP technology to many new users and applications," says Doug Rasor, TI's worldwide strategic marketing VP. "This benefits not only design engineers, but also students. NI and Hyperception share our commitment to, and actively participate in, the education of our future engineers with leading educational programs, such as The Infinity Project and the Texas Engineering and Technical Consortium."

Created by TI and SMU in 1999, The Infinity Project ( www.infinity-project.org ) is the nation's leading high-tech, K-12 engineering education program. The project uses Hyperception's DSP software to teach high school and early college students engineering concepts by providing relevant, modern applications in engineering technology. NI and Hyperception have already started working with Infinity's leaders to investigate long-term opportunities to expand the scope of the program by adding NI's technology.
