Application Highlights

Data Physics test and measurement solutions have many noise and vibration applications for engineers. The four main application categories are Acoustic Testing, Rotating Machinery Diagnostics, Structural Testing, and Vibration and Shaker Testing. We supply solutions for applications as multifarious as acoustic power generation, underwater acoustic testing, rotor dynamics analysis, modal analysis, and drop shock testing. Data Physics instruments solve real world test and measurement problems for engineers from a wide range of industries.

Company Overview

Data Physics, owned by Battery Ventures, was founded by two Alumni of Hewlett Packard in 1984. Dave Snyder had designed hardware and software for the Fourier Analyzers developed at the Santa Clara Division of HP. Sri Welaratna had worked for HP in England, Europe and then in Santa Clara developing applications of Fourier Analyzers. The first project Dave and Sri did together was the design of the UD 400AT vibration controller, the first to use a PC as the host computer and a DSP based signal processing peripheral. This project began in 1983 and used the Texas Instruments TMS32010, the very first Digital Signal Processor.

Starting with the SignalCalc software library for HP Basic computers Data Physics evolved to signal processing solutions on PCs using add on DSP hardware to provide the computational power required for realtime measurements and analysis.

In 2014, Battery Ventures bought a controlling stake in Data Physics. DP is the fifth active industrial-technology platform in the Battery portfolio. In 2015, Battery Ventures acquired a controlling stake in both Lansmont and Team Corporations, establishing the foundation of the Noise & Vibration Technologies (NVT) Group.
