QUARC 2.2: 64-bit Platform Support for Enhanced Performance

In our August post about the soon-to-be-released QUARC 2.2 control software, I spoke about the significant reduction in model build time you could look forward to. Now I'd like to highlight another exciting new feature of QUARC 2.2: 64-bit platform support for the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system. This will result in greatly enhanced performance matched to the capabilities of the new 64-bit PCs. In other words, you will soon be able to build models and run Quanser hardware in Windows 64-bit.

Migrating or upgrading to QUARC 2.2 is even more worthwhile because we are offering it in both 32- and 64-bit versions. Your 32- or 64-bit computer will auto-select the right version. Should you be using two different targets - one a 32-bit and the other a 64-bit - there's still no problem. The QUARC host PC will be able to compile (or cross-compile, as the case may be) your model as required for each Windows target, be it a 32-bit or 64-bit. Searching for a 32-bit Windows 7 OS will be a thing of the past.

QUARC 2.2 has undergone extensive testing on the 64-bit Windows 7 system, and its release date is just around the corner. As a result, you can definitely look forward to overall improved performance and an enhanced user experience very soon.
