Paper Abstract

The multiplex advantage of FT-IR spectrometers enables them to gather a full high quality infrared spectrum in a fraction of a second. However, the necessary transformation of raw interferograms to usable spectra is very computationally intensive. This Fourier transform step often greatly offsets the FT-IR speed advantage when performed on low cost microcomputer based systems. In order to reduce this calculation time to nearly zero compared with the computation time on an IBM AT TM, Bomem has developed the DSP100 signal processor.
