Press Release Summary:
Able to be customized with various hardware options to match application, UF2e-4721 (16 analog inputs) and UF2e-4020 (8 channels) are 16-bit DAQ cards designed for PCI Express. Each channel has its own 250 kHz ADC for true simultaneous sampling, together with 8 voltage ranges from Â±50 mV to Â±10 V, programmable offset of 100%, and input impedances of 50 W or 1 MW. Standard 32 MS memory is expandable to 2 GS, and continuous streaming to host PC is supported at rates over 120 MS/sec.
Original Press Release:
Strategic Test Announces New 16-Channel 250 kHz 16-Bit Data Acquisition Cards for PCI Express
Features simultaneous sampling and streaming to PC
Woburn, MA USA - February 7, 2008. Strategic Test Corp. has announced two new 250 kHz 16-bit data acquisition cards for PCI Express. The UF2e-4721 has 16 analog inputs and the UF2e-4020 has 8 channels. Unique features include the options for dual-timebase sampling, synchronous digital inputs, asynchronous digital I/O and the possibility to synchronize up to 4336 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 mega samples/s
Effective Number of Bits > 14.7 bits
Signal-to-Noise Ratio > 90.6 dB
Total Harmonic Distortion < -105.0 dB
The standard -3dB bandwidth is > 125 kHz
Each channel its own 250 kHz ADC for true simultaneous sampling, together with eight voltage ranges from ±50 mV to ±10 V, a programmable offset of 100% and input impedances of 50 Ohm or 1 MOhm, allowing each channel to be individually configured for the signal source.
Like all UltraFast boards, the UF2e-472x scope 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 PCs to a maximum of 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 $4190 with volume/OEM discounts available.
