April 28, 2014 - Featuring on-board processing, U5309A immediately provides 8 channels of simultaneous acquisition with rates to 1 GS/s once plugged directly into computer PCIeŽ slot. Channels can be interleaved to reach 2 GS/s sampling rate, and applications benefit from data throughput provided by Gen2 eight-lane PCIe bus as well as possibility to implement real-time signal processing algorithms into on-board FPGA.

Agilent Technologies Announces Single-Slot Eight-Channel 8-bit PCIe Gen2 Digitizer

Press release date: April 14, 2014

Minimum-Footprint Solution Delivers Unprecedented Channel Density

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced an eight-channel version of its U5309A 8-bit single-slot PCIeŽ Gen2 digitizer with on-board processing, providing unprecedented channel density and minimum footprint at this level of performance.

Until now, customers requiring an eight-channel data acquisition system had to order a three-slot cPCI chassis, including two digitizer modules and an interface card to the computer. Today they can select the single-slot, eight-channel U5309A PCIe digitizer, which has multiple advantages in cost, reliability and performance-as well as the tremendous size reduction into a single slot card. The installation is as simple as a direct plug into the computer PCIe slot, immediately providing eight channels of simultaneous acquisition.

Size evolution from cPCI to Agilent’s new single-slot eight-channel 8-bit PCIe Gen2 digitizer

"This eight-channel product should interest universities and research institutes looking for a cost-effective, high-density, very reliable and high-performance high-speed digitizer," said Agilent's Jean-Luc Lehmann, product manager, Embedded OEM. "New applications will certainly benefit from this product, leveraging its high-channel density-particularly for OEM customers, where small footprint is an important factor."

The eight channels at 1GS/s version increases the offering of the U5309A product recently launched with its two-channel version. Channels can be interleaved to reach a 2 GS/s sampling rate. Applications will also benefit from the high data throughput provided by the Gen2 eight-lane PCIe bus and the possibility to implement real-time signal processing algorithms into the on-board FPGA. Custom processing for the PCIe digitizer family (U5309A and U5303A) is created using the U5340A FPGA development kit.

The eight-channel option is available now on the U5309A, 8-bit, high-speed PCIe high-speed digitizer; please contact digitizers@agilent.com.
