Advanced Quality Data Exchange Format (AQDEF)

The AQDEF (Advanced Quality Data Exchange Format) work group was founded to specify a standardized data exchange format, binding requirements for data aquisition and data transfer between measurement system manufacturers and Q-DAS software products.

It is the goal of the work group to reduce the effort for both measurement system manufacturers and end-customers by combining the requirements of multiple specifications for interfaces and data formats into one.
