Agilent Technologies Extends Coverage for OEM Market with New PCIe High-Speed Digitizer

Agilent Technologies, Inc.
5301 Stevens Creek Blvd.
Santa Clara, CA, 95051

Press release date: November 22, 2013

SANTA CLARA, Calif., – Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the extension of its next generation of high-speed digitizers supporting custom on-board signal processing capability with the new compact U5309A 8-bit PCIeŽ digitizer sampling up to 2 GS/s.

Six months ago, the U5303A 12-bit PCIe high-speed digitizer and the U5340A FPGA development kit were announced to address the needs of OEM applications such as mass spectrometry time-of-flight, lidar ranging, pulsed radar and ultrasonic imaging.

The Agilent U5309A high-speed digitizer features two channels with an analog bandwidth from DC to 500 MHz, a large DDR3 memory for long acquisition time, and a very high data throughput with its PCIe 2.0 eight-lane interface. In addition, the U5309A includes a Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA, which allows users to load custom real-time signal processing algorithms created with the U5340A FPGA development kit software.

“High-quality electronic product life cycles are shorter and shorter, so time-to-market is key to success,” said Didier Lavanchy, operation manager for Agilent’s high-speed digitizers. “Our high-speed ADC technology has been developed to shorten our customers’ design-in phase while ensuring signal integrity and very high reliability. As a result, this will lower total cost of ownership, a fundamental purchase driver in our OEM market.”

The new PCIe high-speed digitizer focus is also on interoperability, reusability and upgradability. The software driver provided for both the U5303A and the new U5309A supports multiple programmable interfaces for easy integration of the data converter into existing environments. The versatility provided by the common architecture is further enhanced by the custom on-board signal processing. Companies and research institutions can implement their own algorithm as they develop technologies for high-end applications.

Additional Information
The Agilent U5309A two-channel, 8-bit, high-speed PCIe high-speed digitizer with on-board processing is available now. Information about product configuration is available at
