DewesoftX Data Acquisition Software

DewesoftX is an award-winning data acquisition software for test & measurement and monitoring.

It offers data recording, data analysis, and data visualization. The DAQ software received multiple international awards, is innovative, easy to use, and very deep in functionality.

What's New in the Version 2020.1?

  • MODAL TEST MIMO SUPPORT: The Modal test module has been greatly improved in DewesoftX, supporting MIMO for evaluating the dynamic behavior of structures. This means you are now able to use multiple modal hammers or vibration shakers. The user interface was also updated so the Modal test is now easier to use than ever.
  • UPDATED USER INTERFACE: The user interface has been reworked in a flat design paradigm to make it feel more modern and user-friendly. Major improvements have also been made in the grid system, which has been unified across the standard modules. Adding display widgets is now done in the same manner as adding modules in the channel setup.
  • NEW 3D GRAPH: Have you ever wanted to view the full frequency history of a long measurement and understand how that data correlates to time-domain data? The new 3D graph widget enables all that in beautiful graphics.
  • IMPROVED VISUALISATION: The widget settings tab has been redesigned and features new display options, which improve the readability of data and make displays even more configurable to satisfy every user’s needs. We have also rewritten some of the display widgets to be drawn on GPU for faster performance using the latest DirectX technologies.
  • IMPROVED CAN-BUS DATABASE MANAGEMENT: The updated CAN database management system allows you to more easily manage a CAN setup composed of several definition files. When definition files are imported (DBC, ARXML, or XML), the information about the source document and the import time is stored in the setup file as a database parameter.
  • POWER MODULE REWORK: We have optimized the Dewesoft power analysis calculations engine to support ultra-high sampling rates of 15 MS/s of the new SIRIUS XHS data acquisition systems. The calculations have now been offloaded to the NVIDIA GPU cards which enables real-time power calculation on up to 12-phases at the same time!
  • DATA FILE EXPORTS: We have added ASAM ODS, ASAM MDF, TAFFmat (TEAC Data Acquisition File Format), and others to an already long list of supported data file exports.
  • DATA RESAMPLING: Three new methods of resampling are now available when exporting data: Hold, Linear interpolation, and Alias-free. Depending on the channel type, the most appropriate method is automatically selected but users are also free to apply the method of their choice.
  • SYNCHRONISED DATA ACQUISITION AND VISUALISATION: Dewesoft X can acquire, analyze, and visualize data from several data interfaces like analog, digital, counters, CAN/CAN FD bus, XCP, CCP, FlexRay, EtherCAT, Ethernet, and many others.

Blazing Fast Performance

Dewesoft X has been completely rewritten to support 64-bit CPU architecture. The result of this effort is that Dewesoft X is now able to use an unlimited number of input channels and is able to address all the available memory of the computer. 

Dewesoft X also takes advantage of all the modern CPU and GPU technologies like multi- and hyper-threading to make complex mathematical calculations and rich visualizations smooth as a silk. We offload complex computations to NVIDIA GPUs using the CUDA parallel computing platform which allows us to calculate complex computation at 15 MS/s in real-time.

The result is blazing fast performance and ultra-responsive user interface that will make words slow and lagging things of the past.


Blazing Fast Performance

User Experience Like No Other


Dewesoft X is one of the most user-friendly data acquisition software on the market. With the award-winning user interface and friendly approach it saves time for test engineers and is a joy to use.

The new Dewesoft X 2020 release brings unified UI elements throughout the software. We have flattened design elements to make it even more pleasant to the eyes.

The new DS-GRID tabular element is now used in all setup modules. Tools like the auto alignment of display widgets. Shortcuts for copy-paste of visual displays, undo and redo functions speed up the configuration process of designing your visuals.

With the new release, you also get "check for updates" functionality where Dewesoft X will check for the updates on our servers and allow you to upgrade within the software.

User Experience Like No Other

Beautiful Data Visualization

Dewesoft X includes many visual displays for visualizing your data. From interactive horizontal or vertical recorders, XY graph, 3D graph, Orbit, Scope, FFT, table, rainflow, Open Street Maps, to just name the few.

All visual displays are pre-built and can be customized with real-time visual feedback during the measurement. Simply drag-and-drop desired visual component to your screen, select data source and customize it to your preference. But don't worry! If you are not happy with the displays and appearance you can always change them offline, without altering your measurement data.

Unlimited screens/views can be defined and switched between during the measurement or in post-analysis. Visit Dewesoft X visuals page for a closer look at visuals.

No Hidden Licensing Costs or Fees

We offer a very flexible software licensing model with no hidden costs, yearly renewable contracts, or software upgrade fees. When you buy our data acquisition system the Dewesoft X software is always included. The license is stored on the DAQ device. This gives you the flexibility to connect the device to any computer and Dewesoft X will automatically read the license from the connected device.

The license is required only when acquiring and storing data using the DAQ device. Dewesoft X is completely free in analyze mode. This means that once your data is stored you can share, open, and analyze it with as many people and computers as you need. No additional license is needed. Simply download Dewesoft X and open the data file.

The same license applies to the remote view clients in distributed measurement applications. You can have unlimited view clients for monitoring the data without any additional software licenses.

Quality Assured With Agile and Continuous Integration Development

We put a lot of effort into searching for a scalable development process that would keep the quality of software at the highest possible level. We looked at Microsoft, Apple, Google. The process is called agile development.

Agile development is a set of values and principles. It increases flexibility and delivery. Software testing is crucial for continuous development. Each line of code is automatically tested with thousands of test cases that are running all the time. For this, we have invented the infrastructure that is called the darkroom.

When a developer changes something in the source code, the darkroom takes over and automatically compiles the new code. It runs the test cases and gives back the results to developers in a few minutes. A complete suite of tests takes a few hours.
