Strategic Test Releases New 2-Channel 10 MS/s 12-Bit Digitizer/Transient Recorder Cards for PCI Express
Features simultaneous sampling and streaming to PC
Woburn, MA USA - March 6, 2008. Strategic Test Corp has announced the UF2e-3120 two-channel 10 MS/s 12-bit waveform digitizer PCI Express card. Signals can be recorded to the card memory of up to 2 Giga-samples or streamed at full rate to the host PC. Unique features include the options for dual-timebase sampling, synchronous digital inputs, asynchronous digital I/O and the possibility to synchronize up to 542 channels.
Drivers and programming examples for Microsoft Windows Vista, XP64, XP and Linux (RedHat, Fedora, SuSe, Sarge) are supplied with the card, as well as the SBench 5.3 oscilloscope program. SDK's for MATLAB, LabVIEW, Agilent-VEE, DASYLab and LabWindows/CVI are available as options.
Key specifications include:
32 Mega-samples memory - expandable to 2 Giga-samples
Continuous streaming to host PC > 120 MS/s
Effective Number of Bits > 10.6 bits
Signal-to-Noise Ratio > 66.0 dB
Total Harmonic Distortion < -63.0 dB
The standard -3dB bandwidth is > 5 MHz
Each channel its own 10 MS/s ADC for true simultaneous sampling. Eight input voltage ranges from ±50 mV to ±10 V, a programmable offset of ±100% and input impedances of 50 Ohm or 1 MOhm, allow each channel to be individually configured for the signal source.
Like all UltraFast boards, the UF2e-3120 waveform digitizer cards can be customized with hardware options to best match the application:
Onboard memory: 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024 or 2048 Mega-samples
Multiple Recording: memory segmentation
Gated Sampling: output clock controlled by external TTL signal
TimeBase : records time of trigger events or Gates
ABA Mode: slow-fast-slow recording on trigger
Star Hub: synchronization of up to 5 or 16 boards, or 5 to 16 PC's to a maximum or 271 boards. Can be used with Digitizer, AWG and Digital I/O boards to create mixed-mode systems
Digital Inputs : adds 8 synchronous digital inputs
BaseXIO : adds 8 asynchronous digital I/O lines
Prices start at $3990 with volume/OEM discounts available.
