A Visual Studio add-on, and the fastest 2D & 3D data visualization SDK for Windows Forms and WPF. The charting library is used in applications for the most demanding industries: science and research, engineering, economics and finance, trading, medicine, energy, space and defense.

LightningChart is entirely GPU accelerated and performance optimized charting components for presenting massive amounts of data ‒ more than 1 Billion data points real-time.

It is developed for professional high-speed software dealing with real-time data acquisition and representation, utilizing CPU and memory resources efficiently. This provides an unmatched performance to your application, which means:

Real-time monitoring without flickering or delays

High-resolution datasets


Efficient use of machine resources

Ability to render data with older machine hardware, maintaining all advantages mentioned above

For the most demanding developers

LightningChart includes a wide range of 2D, advanced 3D, Polar, Smith, 3D pies / donuts, Geographic maps & G.I.S. charts for science, engineering, medicine, aerospace, trading, energy and other fields.

Along with an outstanding performance, LightningChart offers fully customizable tools and flexibility to the .Net developers within different industries.

Volume Rendering

The core breakthrough of the version 8 is a high-performance Volume Rendering extension which can interact with other 3D objects of our library. Volumetric information plays an essential role in medicine, e.g. for an advanced cancer detection, visualization of aneurysms, and treatment planning. It is also used for non-destructive material testing via computer tomography or ultrasound. In addition, huge three-dimensional datasets are produced by geo seismic research, and can also be visualized by our Volume Rendering engine.

Separate Linear Transfer function for every channel

Volume Thresholding in accordance with voxels brightness for every channel

Dynamic modification of Voxel range

Manual or Automatic Adoptive sampling rate of volume data

Three interchangeable options for Volume Rendering Ray function

Full interaction with traditional 3D models


SignalReader generates real-time data stream reading signal files in different formats: WAV (PCM), sid (biosignal file), ssd (LightningChart Ultimate Demo application sample data format). The playback can be automatically restarted with looping option.


Reads real-time sampled data stream from sound card line-in (using e.g. microphone) through DirectSound. The data can be forwarded to chart, AudioOutput or your own data target.


SignalGenerator is a multi-functional signal generator component. It allows combining different waveform types into single, real-time output signal. The waveform components can be set with a built-in user interface or by code.


Converts data between time domain and frequency domain using Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) algorithm in Digital Signal Processing (DSP).


Allows real-time data stream playback via sound card line-out (using e.g. speakers) through DirectSound. The data can be fetched from SignalGenerator, SignalReader, AudioInput or other data source.
